    I like the shots, and a nice car, only negative might be the reflections, which a polarizer would help reduce them, with that said I sometimes use the reflections to emphasize the shine and luster of a paint job, so this is a subjective thing I suppose.


    Again, good job, the e-pl1 is a little capable machine...

    Thank you! - The reflections are a must for us detailers showcasing our work in our world, as I am sure you know very well. Wasn't going to post these anywhere, since I didn't setup at all, but I promised the owner I'd send him a couple. But I kind of liked the outcome so I decided to post them here and they will go up on the subaru forum as well.:thumbup:

    FYI, the car was opti coated.

    Pardon my ignorance on this, but how would one use a polarizer in this situation? Circular? Linear? I take a lot of car photos and sometimes reflections are a problem, but I've never learned the proper way to reduce/eliminate them.

    AFAIK linear polarizers is all thats needed for m43 cameras. Circular filters are needed for cameras with mirrors.

    Thanks Clayton - the STI is not my car - I am a pro detailer and detail for a living. It was a new car prep plus coating

    Wow, I would need Photoshop to even approach that level of finish. The car looks like it's made of glass. Excellent job!

    Oh :-( It would have been hard for me to return it to the customer.

    I normally work on really high end cars, but I would take this in a heartbeat.
