    framing is a bit off... shadows are pretty harsh... camera angle is a bit low.... too tight.

    I think it's too saturated. the lines in the doors are lost.
    mostly Nikon gear

    Feel free to edit my images for critique, just let me know what you did.

    I agree with n8 as far as it being too saturated. I know there are two seperate stripes along the bottom of the door but, it shows up as one solid stripe. I like the angle and the setting with the exception of there being two wheels on the pavement and two wheels off.

    Gorgeous car. I'm drooling.

    What, if anything, did you do in Photoshop? I know that my E3 has a tendency to block up and/or posterize vibrant red cars. (Happened to me shooting a beautiful '71 Mustang. Argh.) The GT's front end has a lot of detail in the grille that is a little lost. You shot at a pretty good height and good angle to the car. I'd crop a little tighter to the back end.

    Not being harsh or a jerk. Just helping.

    Actually, there is only 1 stripe on the bottom of the door. There are 2 on the hood.

    I brought the contrast up a little bit, to bring out the red.

    This is the original:

    Awesome car man. Not a fan of the location of the shot, the car is half on the street, half on the gravel, and kind of slanted because of it.

    nice car!

    capturing reds correctly involves looking at the histogram, hopefully separated by color and avoid having the red spill to the right

    the light where you are taking this photo and the light background, I guess, is not helping to get a vibrant red

    I stand corrected, the 2010 had the dual stripes. I actually like the original better, there is a lot more detail showing. The lines in the side of the car and the grille texture show up. While the red is not as vibrant I think the trade off in added detail is more inportant.
