Nissan 350z Journey

hey everyone, this is my latest 3d scene of my newly modeled car, the scene is on a dock beside the beach, like the car has been for a journey and now it's at a rest, lighting is almost done, working on materials and later on post processing, hope to get some feedback from you guys

If you want to show that the car has gone on a journey, I think you need to add in some dirt, and some signs that its been through something.

I own a 350Z, and can tell you that just a little drive out into the country dirties up the cars quite a bit!

There is also a scratch that happens on ALL 350Z's that get driven often. Its on the lower right and left corner of the bumper, and it comes from the car being low profile and going over speed bumps. In fact, the entire lower part of the front bumper tends to get a little shredded.

Your environment needs a lot of work to really sell the image. I find that in car shots, the environment is usually as important, if not more so, than the car itself.

Right now there is no sense of the journey at all. Show it!

Thank you Pyke for the tips, it's much appreciated.
for showing the wear of the journey, yeah it makes sense.
I didn't work much on the environment cause I wanted to focus on the car, maybe more work on it would enhance the visual appearance of the shot, but this is a scene that was in mind for some while now, and I'm gonna call it finished to move on to another one.

Thanks again Pyke.

If the image was considered finished, Im not certain why it was posted in the WIP/Critique forum?

Focusing on only 1 aspect of the image (ie, skimping on the environment) isnt really a good idea for your future images. Each aspect of an image should feed onto, and uplift the other.

Love the setting, lighting & post processing looks great, quality of the modeling looks good...

... but the fenders are off and the wheelbase aint right... a stock Z33's wheels are indeed recessed laterally within the extremity of the wheel fenders but not THAT far, also if you blacked out & recess the wheel well arch it will lend a sense of sheet metal body panels to the mesh. I can see in your wireframe render that the wheel wells are simply extruded into the body.

Looking good but with a few tweaks could look excellent!
