Fantastic shot Mukul. Not a pan shot, but shot from inside of a moving car I think.

mukul I think the shot of the nissan takes the cake in this thread man. Brilliant work and like Samu said methinks this was shot from a moving car ?

Rudra I intend to do a full fledged shoot of the Dicor this friday if possible. As of now I have no clue how to get rid of those stone pillars from the background.

@jk: So me thinking to go ahead and get it done, Hope t won't end up in the weird and wacky thread

@suhas307:Thanks mate, I too like that clean boot without all those logos. Sad thing is that, it will be near to impossible now to remove that stupid EuroIII sticker.

@TG: Man you've some keen obeservation skills to find the PP'ed blur. Actually the original shot was motione blurred but since the car was slow and I used 1/30, I added more motion blur in PS - So how did you sense it, is it my imperfect PP or you can recognize the PS added motion blur? Editing in the portions around RHS head lamp is flawed and it can be easily noticed.

And the Santa Fe shot is stunning. Composition really works, the place where it is shot & the processing too. Great job

@Rudra: Thanks a lot! I assume you mean to remove the mosaic effect which hides the number, or?


@planet_rocker: Thanks!

@rjstyles69: I agree, the Nissan shot is very classy, I still go 'wow' when I look at it.

clevermax, if you analyse the panning technique, it would be clear that this is not pan shot. Few years back I was totally gung-ho on panning shots and had researched it extensively.

A pan shot is achieved by keeping the main object at constant size and locked at place in the frame. The best way to achieve it is by being perpendicular to the motion of the object. Imagine the shape of T, if the car is moved along the roof of the T shape, the photographer should be placed at the bottom of the T. That way the size of the object remains almost constant, and the position is fixed in frame by the panning action.

In your shot, the car is coming towards the photographer, that means the car is growing in size within your frame. Panning shot is not really possible in that angle.

@JKDas
Well, I quite enjoy driving the Santa Fe. Its a very handleable SUV. Quite impressed with its sureshot handling.

Yeah like I said its not a panning shot. And for your pillars, You could clone them away I guess. I did a quick 2 minute job of it.

Yes I agree Samurai that it is not a real panning shot as per the book. But this is exactly what I wanted to capture, but unfortunately my 'T' was a weird one there... narrow road and I was standing on the top of our compound wall Had I clicked earlier, the subject would be smaller in the frame and it will just look as blurred shot, and had I clicked later, the subject would move out of this click-able area. At least I could manage to get front portion of the car steady.

That's right the if the subject is either moving towards or away from the cam, the entire car wont be sharp, as you can see the backside of the car is motion blurred.

@TG: Mind sharing some pointers on the making & processing of that Santa Fe shot? I really like this photograph.

Like how many exposures were taken, is there any blending of the HDR image with one of the processed individual shots etc. and of course the Exif.

@ Torqueguru: Absolutely love treatment for SantaFe. Awesome job, how much time did it take for you. By the way, saw your post on DPS as well.

@clevermax
Here is the workflow.

Clicked one photograph only, exposed for the vehicle actually.

1) Curves adjusted
2) Background replaced with another shot I has photographed by myself at Yosemite.
3) Added a color balance layer to match the colors of the new background with the original image of the car.
4) Cloned out the uneven reflections and added a mountain reflection on the right and also the wires in the sky. Also clone diffused the line on the road that was running from lef to right just behind the front wheels.
5) Brought out the highlights on the car to give it a shiny look.
6)Increased exposure of the vehicle by selecting only the vehicle.

Here is the original and final side by side for comparison on pp added.
