Very nice.I wonder how it would look if the pin stripe on the wheels was Gold to match the flake in the paint?

Did you pay for these photos? The photos don't have good composition, I understand not centering the car but aside from the first two it seems like an afterthought. Considering how he framed the car I don't think the tripod would have helped. It would have helped the fuzziness in some of the pics, get a inexpensive digital camera and just start taking your own pictures. Spend a day and move the car to different locations play with the settings and your framing and see what you like. Odds are you'll come out with some decent photos, they can't be any worse. The forester looks amazing BTW!

actually the pinstripe is a sticker type one, so if i could get my hands on a gold one maybe that would look good, great suggestion!

car looks good! What wheel is that? i'm liking it.

And did you dump it for the photos, or is that the car's daily ride height? SLAMMED Foresters look so sweet

Thanks glad you like it.

Those are 18x8.5 buddyclub p2's with a red pinstripe, wrapped in falken 452 265/35/18's.

Thats the daily driver height, sits about a fist from the ground to the custom skid plate that protects my headers.

no scrapes yet, apexi v1's coils so its super stiff.

Alright here goes:

The composition of most of those pictures is really good. However the framing of many of them just don't do it for me. Cars shouldn't be centered in pictures (In my opinion, take it or leave it) but they also should not have parts out of frame, unless it is a head on half shot like the first picture or the front half like in the second. But shots like the 3rd, 4th, and 6th don't really do it for me. Also, some of them look like the point of focus was not the car which makes the car look blurry, however I could be wrong and that may just be the lighting.

Now this said, I am not dissing anyone's pics, everyone has their own style that they shoot in and it works. I'm not saying that these are bad pics or that the person who took them was bad I am just pointing out what I would have done differently. I am also not, by any means, a professional photographer and am once again just offering opinions.

Now for the stuff that matters:

SWEET FORESTER :woohoo: :rock:

Im happy everyone is liking the car, makes me feel like my work is appreciated :).

Justforfun, i agree 100% I think off centered pictures can be very flattering, but am not the fan of the camera tilted and what not. THe focusing you noticing is the lack of a tripod and the whole shot kinda got blurry.

Thanks everyone!!

definately agree, i am very happy with it. I am considering getting some bronze or gold rims to go with it, possibly a red pinstripe aswell to match the rallyarmor flaps.

Tailights, and Headlights, were done with VHT Nightshades, ive had thorough experience with this stuff and others, on friends and my vehicles, and have had the best results with VHT Nightshades.
Pm if you want a step by step process.

I carried the 265's over from my wrx, they still have more than 90% tread life left, and i cant praise them enough, falken 452's are great tires and the 265 wide is a perfect size for the car, handles great, it takes alot to get them to make a sound. I definately recommend them, not 100% positive on my offset, think its 45, but anylarger and they will rub. So looks like 265 is about as big as it gets.

Vinnyd how do you like the dom4? Supporting mods?
