Your favorite photographs from other photographers

Since I got into photography several years ago, I feel like I have learned the most by admiring other people's work and figuring out how to emulate them. I thought it might be fun to have a thread where people can post photographs that they gain inspiration from.

Here is a link to the photographs that I have "favorited" on 500px. I think many of those photographs are so above and beyond I wouldn't even know where to begin to get on their level.

I don't aspire to compose and edit my photos like this, but these certainly inspire me.

As much as I don't like overprocessed images, I'd love to learn this guy's post processing methods. Makes rather mundane images totally pop.

Well I just found my new favorite photographer, or at least my favorite car photographer. Love his style and the rich colors in the photos.

What do you guys think? Took a shot of the car just sitting still with leaves piled up in the front and then edited it to look like a rolling/rig shot?

Whoa whoa whoa there haha. I was asking you all if you guys think it's a photoshop job or a real rig shot.

I'm definitely leaning towards photoshop/editing after seeing people editing photos from no movement to full on rig shots.

If the car was moving I don't think the leaves would really pile up like that in the front.

Either way I still think it looks awesome. Props to the photographer.

I misunderstood the caption, sorry. Still think it's been edited. The blur looks fake af - just look at the leaves in front of the bumper. And its just very rough in general. Still think its a very good effort on the part of the photographer, though. It sells the idea of a moving car nicely.

Don't think its PS. Too much motion blur reflecting off the car. I have no idea how you'd ever do that.

That's a VERY good point - I didn't notice the reflections.
