    Some about me:
    Real name: Emil Leirud
    Birth: May 1995
    Setup: PS3 Slim 320GB. 37" Philips TV.
    Editing software: Photoshop CS5 Extended, Lightroom CS5
    PC: HP ProBook 4330s (Ye i know its crap, School laptop as my other laptop has crashed.) Razor Naga mouse. Logitech sth keyboard.


    Since its off-season for car photography, i thought i could start a gallerie for GT6. Some might remember from GT5, but my gallerie "died" when i got my drivers licence, and lost it.

    Not top notch as some of the other galleries i see here, but ill do my best to keep up to them.

    Some "realistic" as thats what i do in real life, only curves and color adjustment.

    And yeah, thats the facebookpage im running, feel free to like and share my pics :)

    No worries Emil :) no doubt your creative side will rise soon, nice first GT6 panorama, more mountains more sky more clouds and the train infrastructure, this is why I'll always love real panoramas :tup:

    The Spa shot looks excellent, the lighting and contrast looks excellent, and makes the entire shot the highlight rather than just the main focus. :tup:

    Nice start Emil :)
    The "Boss" pics are very good, especially the first one, great tonning and sense of motion in them :tup:
    Your first panorama is not bad at all. For a first one it's even a great start, merging pic made with a short focal lenght is very hard and you've succeed. The tonning is very good also !
    Usually I really don't like these kind of flashy rims but I must admit that it's not a bad comobination with this mettalic grey :tup: And the two pics are very nice, very clean with, once more, a very good toning :tup:

    Diobel: You'll learn, have taken pictures for a while now, both GT5, and half a year of real life photography. Suprisingly how much you learn from real life can be used in GT5/6, Sorry i dont have any toturials to share, all self learned (and friends within photography IRL) :)

    Sython: Thanks, ye, really happy about the light in that one :)

    Kodje: The Mustang pics took some time to shoot (had to learn to drift too :p) And the EVO pano, wasnt the first panorama i have done, but first of that scale (6 2x pics 16:9 Ratio and 24mm focal lenght)
    Im neither a fan of fancy colored rims either, but as my buddy did a rigshot of a grey metallic S2K with pink/purple rims, so i thought why not give it a shot, turned out good imo :)

    The 2 shots in your latest update look great! I especially like the first one with the Golf.;):tup:

    I've got an editing tutorial / tips & tricks convo that I've got going with a few people. I can add you to it if you want.

    Woke up tp bit of a bummer today. Admins asking for me to remove the tifle on the pics.
    As i have a connection as useful as a rock is to fix a glass, replacing the pictures isnt an option.

    I wil try again on a new set tho. and hope the admins wont bug on that too.
    "Damn so fine!"

    Some knows that im planning on "overdo" zzz_pt's STUNNING 80+ pic of the Huyruyrua :p

    My 120+ project is coming along, and after 1hr of Hugin doing its magic, if left me with over 16k control points.
    [​IMG]

    I have to go trough every picture, and its "allignment" with other pictures (i.e picture 20, that has "relation" with way too many pictures because of the damn GT watermark)

    So i will maybe start over after cropping all the pictures to get rid of the watermark.

    Hope some one understood what i wrote, i know i write like a pig, sitting here with a hangover and fighting the urge to throw the laptop out a window:p

    will be back, soon with a 25k picture :)

    First comment for me in your gallery. I think you're improving all the time which is great to see. Some of your toning is quite good, particularly in the two XKRS panos and the MCGT set. :tup:

    Just watch for your compostions that they don't all end up being so centered, there's a quite a few that are which can work well in some instances but overuse can makes thing look a bit static. ;) Hope that isn't a mood killer.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this large 120 shot composite, sounds like a handful.

    Thanks GPR, im always open for someonew veiw on my work!
    I know they got a bit static, thats why i took a little break over new years. To get some new ideas, So expect more "individual" shots from now on, i figured i cant "compete" with some of the guys here who pu up massive sets every 2 days.
    So will be more creative with the shots from now, Also i will make some "replicas" of my real life shots :)

    The 120+ project is coming along more smoothly after i started all over again after some prework on the shots. Reduced the number of controlpoints by 5k in no time.

    Maybe finished today :)

    Nice work on your last pano Emil :tup:

    I like a lot the four with the Jag', especially the one in Tokyo, love this kind of urban shot playing with light and shadows. And I also like lot the fourth shot with the AMG VGT, minimalism, high speed effect, nice warm light :tup:

    I won't engage people in this epic merging competition but I wait to watch your own monster pano ;)
