Thank you Darren and William.Honestly Koen, not to cop out, but both are good for different reasons. I like the cars only image better in one way because you have no distractions from the cars. On the other hand, the one with the figures is nice too; it as you say, tells a scene and injects an all important human element into the photo and puts the race cars into scale. Nicely done either way, your thread is always nice to peek into sir.
2 different concepts in model car photography.I find the figurines do not look realistic enough, while the car models do. The faces and the hands... too much like toys. Distracting imo.
Can't wait to get my CMC Birdcage next week. Such a fascinating race car.
And what brand would you consider the absolute best, with the most lifelike faces? I'd be interested in a few, like Enzo Ferrari, Jean Bugatti, Hans Stuck, etc...There are figurines in all kinds of quality degree and finish, the Figutec and Figurenmanufaktur products I use the most, are IMO of an acceptable level.
