Looking good, I much prefer this one to your previous one. I would still think about editing that plate out of there tho.

No distracting sun spot or reflections. Plus a simpler background (although I would choose something that wasn't a similar shade with the car, but better) with less distractions.

The thing to think about while doing "advertising" is that the car is the star, right? You are trying to "sell the car." So, while backgrounds certainly help to make the shot more interesting, they should not take focus away from the car. Plus, you want the car to look as "clean" as possible, in that you don't want odd relfections, streaks, etc impeding people's view of the car. That's why when you see some ads nowadays in magazines etc, the cars look very uniform, almost computer generated. The idea is to allow people to appreciate the car for what it is.

EDIT: and it is a more interesting angle.

No someday I'll put the cover over it and do that.

what font does Pontiac use????

gm4life 02-11-2006 08:27 PM

Its called either Eurostile (standard on my p/c) and or Goodman/BonnevilleClub text the same thing. I used Bonneville club text on the image and Pontiac used eurostile on the band across the buttom. (that boarder is off of a 05 GXP wallpaper). Somebody can give you a link for the download of the font its on the forum somewhere along with another website. Admin knows where it is on the b/c club and haro has another site where its called goodman and you can get the same darn font. ;)

I really like this one a lot. Get the plate off asap though, at least for good pics like this.
