    Competition 111

    Theme chosen by AOS-


    THEME: In their words: "Love and Hate Relationship. The one car you wanted to fully embrace but cannot get over that one... thing it has. Make it stand out like a sore thumb.

    This can be the subject or the model itself.”

    • Editing: Levels, Curves, Colour Balance, Brightness/Contrast, Hue/Saturation, Shadows/Highlight adjustments, Cropping, or anything else capable in the development process or with filters and common special lenses (such as gradients) are allowed to be used in Photoshop or other image editing software.
    • You may also edit/clone tool slight defects like dust spots.
    • You may use Unsharp Mask.
    • Other adjustments and effects are not allowed to be used in your picture.
    • Photographs should ideally include some composition and effect - Base the photo on a studio shoot, or even use diorama/composition to create a realistic setting (you could position the model and camera in such a way in an outside setting so that it appears to be a 'real' car)
    • No HDR shots.
    • Shots must be taken between January 2016 and the present day.
    • Work that has been shown previously (outside of the competition) is allowed.
    • One entry per competition. You may change your entry as many times as you wish, however the entry you wish to submit should clearly be labelled with "Final Entry".
    • Pictures posted should preferably be around 900px on their longest edge. You may link to a larger photograph in the post (I believe this is the size limit allowed by the Photography forum, however it likely hasn't been updated in some time)
    • All scales of model are allowed unless specified.

    I'm hoping this will be a fun and easy exploratory mission for most.

    Sorry. Had an idea that might work, but haven't had the time to execute it. This oldie will have to do before and if I get the time tomorrow to shoot.

    FINAL ENTRY

    I've chosen this pic because I've never liked the half-windshield in front of the actual windshield (it ruins the smoothness of the curves), and there's no better way to show it than a side profile shot.

    I promise to submit something too, but I'm so attached to Beat Saber at the moment! Argh.

    eDit:

    Final entry!

    This one touches on what I feel is a huge oversight that the manufacture refused or failed to acknowledged. The blade of the wing is slanted! :banghead: I paid good moolah for this one too.

    Never was a big fan of the looooong nose and the upward sweep of the side windows on the Enzo, hence me choosing it.
