Hi all,

I have a question about pictures of GTR.

I saw some of the GTR photos, some of them looked really good but on other hand some of them looked not as good as what I expected it to be. Both pictures are from almost the same position and angle. They have the same color too. I am curious about why some of pictures look different even though the object in the photo are the same. I am kinda confused about this so I checked on other cars like Audi R8 which all the pictures looked amazing. I just dont understand what the problem is,because whenever I see the real car in person, it is like this is the best car in my opinion.

Anybody can explain this to me?

Thank you.

Lens zoom (focal length) can make a big difference. Here are two shots from similar positions* with very different effects.

The first (wider angle) emphasizes the massive rear of the GT-R, as you might experience the GT-R at a close distance. Here, the car's huge rear is amplified. The second represents a view as you would see the car from a distance. The front appears bulkier. Also note that background objects in the second pic are likewise amplified, and for some this could be distracting and drawing attention away from the car.
*Composition is also a factor. A subtle shift in position, a few feet in either direction, can make a considerable difference. The first picture IMO does a better job of drawing out the dynamic interplay of the GT-R's strong shoulder line as it plunges and blends in with the muscular front fender. A lower shooting angle, from which one might rarely see a car, can also give it a different sense of height or add to its exotic looks.
Sometimes, you want to use a stronger zoom to dramatically heighten a sense of tension, particularly when shooting frontal views.
