Was this the Digital Tutors tutorial?

Still more texture detail to work out to get the look more realistic.

jameshodgart maybe you should read what you just quoted, maybe the answer is in there

Gah Silly Me!

It looks great!

I have not forgotten about this challenge! Took some time away from this due to work overload but now im back at it.

@jameshodgart Thanks I really appretiate it.

I went back and fourth these last 2 days deciding the context that I composited this car into. Decided finally that I wanted to try out doing a miniature composite. So I went out and bought a 3 inch mirror ball and had some fun.

WIP 1 the cones and car are 3D. Still a bunch to do still not convincing enough to make me happy.

Very nice Preston!
I first realized that the cones were 3d as well when i read it in ur post

Your first render looks very good as well.

LC35 Lambo WIP

Here's my first WIP on the Lambo. Many little details to fix but overall lighting is done. Pretty easy outdoor physical sun/sky. Beautiful model. Easy to work with!

Love this image! Can I offer one suggestion? We see the underside of the car reflected on the table. Could be nice to break up that black with suggestion of some mechanical parts maybe? Lighting looks great!

@deijardon Very good suggestion. Right now one of the main reasons Im not happy with the image is because the car is not modeled to be a toy car the details in the model are too perfect. I might need to remodel or approach different style. You're image is absolutely beautiful. I love how the car looks wet after a storm just broke. Really awesome.

@funkygfx Thanks I really appreciate it! Id love to see you get in this challenge as well, you freakin dominated the last architecture one.

My work is almost done . I have rendered it with Maya mental ray and composited render passes into photo shop .
Waiting for the feedback .....................

I'm a fan of your composition.
Red and desaturated dark blue is very strong!
Did the photo came from you? Where did you find it, I'm interested!

Did you work in linear? I have the impression you didn't.

No I'd did not take the photo. I did know that I wanted this particular angle and then I searched Google till I found and matching one. It helped as well because there was a car in it so I copied the lighting.

Here is the original images
