@clevermax:

A very nice concept. You have waited for the right moment, I guess.

Only thing I feel is that the sky is over exposed (too much of brightness), maybe a shot on the other side the day could have been better. Just a thought!

Still, a very good concept.

My try on the swift picture. Did not spend much time though.

Nice shot!

Clicked this shot 2 days back. The Nissan GTR - aka Super car killer.

Good catch Tg!! Seems like you're now specializing in panning shots..

@piper.gates: Thank you. But it wasn't clicked by me, it was posted un-edited in this thread, and I though of editing it a bit.

@piper
Thanks man.
@clevermax
Well, this one is actually photoshoped to get the pan. Actually it was a still shot. I applied motion blur in photoshop.

Ok, saw this wonderful blue Evo 8 at Monterey. I love this car!

You need a polarizer for reflection control. In the above pic the body reflections are good, but the glass reflections are distracting.

But how a polarizer can help in this scenario, as it cuts down the reflections at one particular angle, both from body as well as glass.

I have a HOYA 62mm circular polarizer, I use it very very rarely. It eats up a lot of light.

@TG: I very much like the processing on the Evo8 picture. The car color and the background color makes it interesting.

Btw, In the nissan gtr shot, Its interesting to note that teh wheels have circular motion blur as well, if it was a still shot. How did you do that?

Looks like you havent been exploring Photoshop enough.
Want another similar example? Check out this image from my profile pic.

The entire panning was a PS effort. I have posted another shot as well in this thread of my car, where i used the same effect.

Partially right. Reflections for car bodies are not polarized to the extent as reflections from glass. Therefore polarizer will have minimal effect on body reflections
For example look at this picture

I have been able to cut reflections from the left window glass to a greater extent than the body, which still has significant reflections. A polarizer will cut reflections which are polarized. Metal does not reflect fully polarized light like glass. So you can tweak the CPL to get desired results

Well.. from your image one can very well make out the doctored motion blur.. the road completely misses the blur! This looks like the car is being shifted in a conveyor belt kind of road Everything except the car should be blurred to make it more realistic..

I have used the standard motion blur in photoshop, but i was asking about the perfect circular type motion blur applied in the nissan gtr's wheels..

When the image is perfectly in front, it becomes very easy to apply circuular blur to the wheels. Cant do it right now as i am in office, but will do up a pic similarly when i get home.

Nice one Tanveer. Yes I do need a polarizer.
@Clevermax
Well its easy to apply radial blur in photoshop. Its under filters--->blur--->radial blur

TG.

When the image is not perfectly in front, then too you can apply circular blur to the wheels, you just need to play around with some warping. Here is an old eg I had done . The click was from my sony H50 Point and shoot. Perfectly still image, manipulated in photoshop to give the blur. I admit they are not 100 percent convincing, but these are quite old pics, and my pp gyan back then was worse than what it is now
