BMW 335i Convertible

For the most part of the previous year, I tried my best to supress post-production while forcing myself to build a stronger foundation in pure photography. I set the priority and I went a complete circle after a year back to where I started. With a stronger foundation, better understanding, and more experience, I think I have outdone myself in the past.

 

notes: for the most part, shooting this photogenic car wasn't a difficult task. The angle I close here was only natural to me, although I know there are people who would argue about the tilt, but I think it adds dynamics and feeds life into the image. The shot was taken under a shade of a building but the sunlight was pretty diffused that day late in the afternoon. The HDR process allowed me to better control the lighting in post-processing. Noise control was added partially to enhance the reflective look. The burnt edges and corners better focus the subject and adds drama to the overall look.
