If we're going down the route of finding a better scape, then I propose abandoning the 'studio' idea and just finding a scape that offers the best angle and lighting in general without the need for additional settings.
Yes, I think this would be a good idea, the problem is you can't play with angle in scapes mode. in race mode you're 100% free.
For example, I'm a frequent competitor in a competition that's organized for over 510 weeks now, where competitors have to search for the best second hand cars on the net with every week a new theme ! Almost every week searching for the best car you've in mind and the luck you need the seller made awesome photo's instead of standard 'studio' photo's or from the showroom with a dead plant in the background.
I think more freedom would work for finding the best angles that work for the livery you made this time + a kind of sub-subforum for photosettings maybe and then.... Do whatever you want to do to 'sell' your livery for the best.
It will provide the competition with more diversity and more creativity + on longer term you will probably learn making better pictures compared to the 're-using the first Shiretoko' setup.
It's not a rant, no, but it feels dumb to me somehow.. Like you've a car setting for one specific RWD car and you're using this setup for every other RWD car in your garage
Note : For everyone, thanks for this discussion.
