Worst Official Photo of a GM Product. Period.

The following image can be found at Saturn's website and in the most recent Aura brochure.

Is it just me or does that look like a very sloppy photoshop by MDM on a bad hair day? Some of the bodylines present in other photos can't be seen in this one.

GM, I love ya', but you gotta fire the guy who threw that photo together. It offends my eyes.

Too... many... colours...

It should be mandatory that one package of official shots per vehicle be done on the Bonneville Salt Flats, and done well.

The chrome near the C-Pillar also looks like someone got a little too intimate with PS's smudge tool.

No. Not the worst. Not by a long shot.

Try one of the countless GM press shots of a gray car with a gray background.

the blue looks nice, except the really bright part from lights to tail lights... and the concrete reflection almost makes the doors look two-tone... and the chrome around the doors soes look blueish...odd

that silver cobalt on grey background looks worse just cause of the non-existent contrast.

GM should take pictures in places like Arizona or Montona, with blue sky in the background in a natural setting. The colours of desert or Rockies would nicely offset any car. Plus, with the car front and centre and everything else "in the distance" it would look better.

Well its the lounge so saturin falls under my fair game act #007 subsection Posted Image

We stopped at a saturin dealership this weekend..........just to kick a few skys......... :lol: and damn if there wasnt a few Aurora wanna be's sitting there. You guys can have that car, in person its about as exciting as the Camry.......two generations ago. SO this photo does well to not give away the grade school body sculpture* of the "aura".

*term used loosely in this case

:thumbsup:

It's all about cost. Way cheaper to photoshop a car into a setting than actually take the car and a big photo crew to the location. Same idea in the generic gray studio.

fly, your mom and dad still....? imagine that next time before, say, thanksgiving dinner with the entire family seated around the table.

that aura pic has sort of a 'saturn meets norman rockwell' thing going on.

You were saving that one for a rainy day, weren't you? Or was it spur of the moment,
