Thanks all.

I liked the 1st one bunches. The whole thing got me looking at cars different. Dah!

Would have liked a ladder. Maybe next time...

#2 for me all the way! Did you use something like Topaz Adjust? Love the saturation or "de-saturation" and reflect you get off the T-Bird.

Nope. All in Lr. Working the selective desaturation and split toning. Have Topaz and thinking of working with it more... Thanks!

BTW

BTW on my agency computer this thread comes up with a large starfield picture rather than #3! I think it is zAmboni's...

I was looking at since it was pointed out that #4 is over sharpened. That is what makes for the outlining? What is that called? Suggestions on how to handle this? Do I Just need to use layers to do selective sharpening? Thanks.

I also LOVE the composition of the T-Bird shot and the color effect. way cool.

my next door neighbor has an AC Cobra and i've been hoping he'll let me shoot some pics of it one of these days. so much chrome on it i am afraid i will ruin the shots with my own reflection, however...

Thanks, Yes more on the site and a few other treatments I'll send in soon.

Reflection is interesting. I'm in a few. One I noticed and bent over to blend in with the shadows in the background. Another I set up the shot and took my face out of the camera and looked away like I was a random person ~ I was... And then there are angles. My first shoot with cars so don't know how to say it there are angles to find with out your reflection.

Yeah! Someone suggested Topaz on it to see what'll happens! This is the beginning of my weekend so I'll see what I can do.

Thanks all!


There's sun today! And a forecast of more all weekend...

Love these. Great perspectives. I hate typing this cliche, but you think outside the box.
