Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-30
Detroit Muscle by *mug25 "Working from his own photography, He sets the mood perfectly and pieces together the piece with such great symmetry. The city is stormy and it really makes you feel like you're in an intense"Fast and Furious" setting and mood. The details are amazing from the very last drop of rain on the windshields!" ( Suggested by luniara and Featured by Destin8x )

Ok.

Here goes my critique!

even though I'm a girl I must admit i know a lot about cars. And cars do fascinate me. (i actually wanted to work in this domani, can you image that?).

I like how the cars are posed. From small to big.It gives a nice touch and symmetry to the whole piece.
Also, the background couldn't be better. A city and a stormy sky, with loads of rain around.
Power,force,it drives you in that "Fast and furious mood".

As about the technique, I can't see any mistake. you payed attention to the details - the reflection of the cars in wet ground, the blending, the rain drops popping from the cars, everything looks so real!
I guess you used HDR, it kinda looks like that you know?

Anyway, i'm glad I came of to see this work.
I really love it!

a work that draws attention at first sight.
passionate about cars and art does not contain the curiosity to view it

a special point in the work is its size in widescreen format

the composition has a perfect harmony
the choice of 3 models of cars was very tasteful.
models provide a feeling of strength and power that go great with the force of nature (a storm) and the grandeur of the metropolis
the colors of the cars are well chosen, not allowing one attracted more attention than others

I highlight only negative point as the rain drops do not convey realism, but on reflection it is better to be so because the theme is cars and not the background.

in my opinion is a flawless work.:clap:

This is amazing! And you put my favorite car in the world, the Shelby GT500, in biggest proportion to the other two. Just astonishing, really! Right down to the waterry reflections of the cars' front facias. Definately going on my favorites!

The rain is really fitting; shows you how ridiculously outnumbered we are, and yet we keep fighting.
Truly is Detroit's darkest hour.

The Camaro should be first then the challenger and in a distant back the mustang :P
