Default I've been told my shots are "Honda advertisement quality"

I'm a photography hobby enthusiast and I love taking photos on my free time. I took a few photography classes in college, including 35mm film. I just recently picked up a new full-frame camera and some of the first shots I took were of my beloved S.

I did a little photoshoot last weekend with a friend's and my S. He has the GPW and I have the NFR.
I only shoot RAW, and I use Lightroom to edit. I edit every single digital photograph I take; there's always room for enhancement.

By the way, if you're on flickr, follow me and I'll follow back!

I love the first and third shot. The third one looks like the dealer poster I have on my wall.

That last two definitely could be. I'm not really sold on the first two. Your sky detail is phenomenal. What heat do you use?

I'm not sure what you mean by "heat"? If I had to guess I would think you're talking about color temperature which I don't keep track of. On the camera I used manual mode, set my ISO, shutter, and aperture, and the rest I edited in Lightroom. For the shot with the blue faded to orange sky I used a graduated filter within Lightroom. One thing people don't quite understand is that when you're shooting with RAW, it's much better to shoot underexposed rather than overexposed. That way you can pull out a lot of detail in your shadows and your highlights won't overexposed, such as I did with my sky pictures.

They are indeed, either the very first shot, or the second to last shot should be in the s2ki calendar for 2016! Nicely done.
