Composing - Car and Model

I changed the background. Originally it was a showroom of a tuning factory "Geiger Cars". I decided to put the car into a forrest background.
Hope you like it:

Re: Composing - Car and Model

Are you asking for a critique?

Impossible focuses. They guy seems to float and the shoulder on the right is mushy. He also does not seem to really exist in the scene - shadowing, hard edges. Check the cars tires - color, mask

Re: Composing - Car and Model

It appears that the light on the trees is coming from upper right and going to lower left. He is standing on the shadow of a tree, yet he is not casting a shadow. If the light is coming from behind him, why the big hi lite on his face?

Also under the car there are very bight sun spot areas. So the car has holes in it that allow the light to pass through and hit the ground?

Re: Composing - Car and Model

i think you guy are looking at the image as retouches.
try looking at it from a style perspective.

not everything has to be real world perfect.
by the looks of the image it is not meant to represent the real world.

looking at it as a design its great.
if i seen it on a poster i wouldnt look at all the things that the above posts have pointed out

Re: Composing - Car and Model

if it's not aesthetically pleasing, the design principle tends to get lost...

I recognize that you went through a lot of work selecting the right components to make this grouping.. Put in a lot of time working on the individual elements to make them look good (the car, trees, man) the design is great, JUST not finished and still looks fake.. It is the little details (like you put into all the other elements to make them look good) that count most and your finished composite deserves the same attention to detail.. as Ant and Mike have pointed out..

Then again maybe you will be happy doing haphazard work and will be satisfied with "WOW, It looks Freakin Great!!" instead of listening to constructive criticism and learning from it.
