::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
This is one hot car ... I love the colours and the impression made not only by the car but by the flooring as well.

Composition:
This has been done very well, you have managed to capture the vehicle without any major flashpoints ... and it is well positioned in the picutre.

Subject:
Defiantely meets my idea of a fantasy.

Technical (Colour and light):
fantastic lighting .. and great colours ... I like the effects of the blending on the background.

To grow its vote?:
Hard to know really, you scored well above average and it is a good picture. In fact there are only around three picutres in the top 25 that do not have people ... no I am not suggesting a blond chick accross the bonnet though.

Summary:
Great shot... fantastic post processing.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via the PM system.

Cheers

Kari

Haha, too funny! Besides that I love the way you lit this car up. The lighting on this is excellent in my opinion. Good Luck... and if you need to trade in your wife for a new model please let me know. ;-)

Gorgeous image, although the background needs clipping a bit more?

What kind of car is that?

oh, now that is sweet. The vignetting aroundt he courners is a little harsh and obvious, but it doesn't distract from the beauty of this fantasy.

The people milling about in the background (at a car show?) take me out of any fantasy to reality element this might have but points for a well executed photo.

Sweeeetttttt! You'll be getting the "guy" votes for sure on this one. Nice pic. The lighting underneath the car and tires look a little funky.

Fantasy...because this car is a concept car? Or maybe a model/thus not real? Well photographed in any case!

I would LOVE a wife like that :P. But I don't think gay marriage is legal in my state.

sweet ride, great picture - but I'm not sure I understand the title... your fantasy is that your wife is this car?
