Another new picture of the '01

Not sure about this one, but I think I like it. Right after a storm.

It would be a pretty cool shot if you could see the Boxster a little better

If you shot that in a raw format, someone with Photoshop could probably bring out the form of the Boxster better. It would be extremely cool then. Do you know what format it was shot in?

I think that picture is amazing! I wouldn't even begin to know how to take one like that. And I like how it's dark like that.

I really like that picture!
I was able to bring the car out a little bit more in PhotoShop. I think the second one is better.

You guys are gonna hate me for this one, but from an old landscape photographer's standpoint, I'd like it better without the car........
Great shot, Samson!!!

That does bring it out a bit... looks good.

The photo was not shot in RAW, unfortunately. Might have been a good idea in this situation.

I agree about the landscape- I did take a couple of shots without the car, and they turned out similarly.



Anyway, I brightened up the Boxster a bit and attached a larger (1500x1000) image.

Thanks for the comments!
