first two are great, John.

third one would be better if you got those highlights under the car from dodging instead of using so much unsharp mask. it'll set your work away from that fake HDR look.
just my worthless opinion. cheers.

Nice shots and nice car. I like 1 and 2 better than 3. 3 looks a little fake and too much noise on the hood.

The GTR is a great car but can't justify the premiums that the dealers are still adding to it. There are two '09 at the Nissan in Bellevue, each with a 10k+ markup still.

either a polarizer, a ND gradient filter or a composite.
i'm leaning towards the polarizer, though. the camera was pointed at a 90-degree angle of the sun, which is when a polarizer will do its best.

It must have been another angle of the same car, unless you follow me on flickr.

Polarizer filter helps a lot in situations like these! Even the cheapo Hoya ones.

Yea, not sure why the noise is so pronounced on the hood....? #3 will go back to the shop

Serious, this car had a 15k markup......
