Did some research on a new rendering technique and this was the result.
Let me know what you guys think?

What's the technique? Looks brilliant. Especially like the wheels.

Only crit is the background looks VERY cg, particularly the mountains. You should use a photo.

I'm currently scouring the internet for a "new technique." Also searching for "mini cooper s mountains photos" in yahoo to see if this is a wind up.

It looks perfect but, for some reason (probably my skeptical eye) still looks cg. Can't put my finger on why. Maybe lack of noise or something.

if the car had the same amount of grain as the background photo it would feel more like a whole.

Come on, Redstar, you can't just say you found a new technique and leave it at that. Tell us at least which renderer did you used?

Aside from the perspective being a bit off, the render looks great well done. I agree with STRAT the shadows are way too dark. I would also add that grain you have on the photo over your road and car to keep consitancy.

edit: actually, it might be the ior not the perspective thats a bit wierd.

Very nice

Also there is a sun/inclouds on the hdri, which is on the wrong side of the car - it's as if it was coming from behind the camera, but the shadow says the sun is to the left.
