Challenge: Advertisement Revisited (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Canon PowerShot G5
Location: Tampa
Date: Jul 1, 2004
Aperture: 8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 3
Galleries: Performance, Advertisement
Date Uploaded: Jul 3, 2004

With camera's ND filter on...
Going for the long exposure to try to capture some lightning in the background...was looking for "Electrifying Performance"...no such luck.

Color balance to up the blue...seems to be a growing trend in my pics
Curves to lighten and bring down contrast
Unsharp mask to help sign

I was torn about the potential issue of not showing the back wheel...eventhough I felt this was a more powerful shot. But the car directly behind this one and the window sticker required removal when I backed up the shot a bit. So it made my decision easier.

Aggressive composition - almost perfect (crop too tight on E)

This would make a nice poster.

This could certaily be seen an any high-class magazine - well done. The only things that detract are the harsh whit area below the headlight and the grasses in front of the building. Even so - it's one of the better submissions and should finish very high. I normally don't like borders much - but this one works well for the composition.

not so sure that shooting this at night is a good idea

I really like the POV that this photo was shot. Also think it was a good decision to shoot at night as it makes the different tones of the silver really pop out. This photo screams "new, sleek, sophisticated". Good use of the Porsche sign to get your selling point across. Well done!

Great shot, the dealership sign and color just make the shot.

Only thing I can see that might improve this is to eliminate the plant. It would have been nice if you could have also lit the top of the car a little. You've still captured a very good image for "Advertisement Revisited." 10.

Great colours! I would try toning down the light in the store window. It still makes me want a porshe though! (10)

I feel the essence of the product is lost here. Looks like a Kia parked near a Porsche dealership. Neat picture though.
