# 2 would be perfect, if it didn't look like the convertable was carrying a BOAT !!! ;-)

watch those backgrounds !

very nice night shots.
Though, watch for the green cast from the sodium vapors in the parking lot.

I know! It was pulled up further and there was this gigantic bright light messing it up, then he pulled it back and the boat was there, eh lol.

You really like purples don't you Nikki.
The pics look great, but I'm not a huge fan of that model Merc. I agree, the colors did come out very nice.

Nice work Nikki I can offer some suggestions.

#1 the car seems dull (no contrast) like it was lightened too much in PS it needs to be blended more with the background, also the car fills too much of the frame, it would be better about 4 steps back.

#2 the car is too centered, it would look nice if the car was cropped to the right side. The post without the boat looks great but I would also suggested cloning out the white parking lines as they are distracting and easy to remove.

#3 Nice but looks like a snap shot, maybe if you turned the wheels or shot from frogs view it would help.

On the last set you posted the WB it too orange, are you shooting raw?

Thanks, the last few are orange because of the amber lights at the beach something to do with the sea turtles. And no, I'm not shooting raw.
