hey people, since my second HDD crashed, i don't have a full-res version of this shot, but i was wondering how hard it would be to add a properly exposed sky to this shot.

so if anyone can do it, post up and we'll see who wins ;)

Here is my take. The placement of the sun may not be accurate but I thought it looked cool non-the-less. It looks like he is trying to outrun the rain. About 3 minutes of PS work.

1. Open your file and a sky shot from my files.
2. Create a new layer on my pic.
3. Select you pic only and removed the frame.
4. Select the sky in your shot with Magic Wand.
5. Delete the selection.
6. Copy your car shot to new layer in my pic.
7. Save and show here.

If you need a sky to suit Melbourne's weather just paint it black.:lol: :lol: Only joking.

I'd add a nice sky for you, but I'd have to change your car to a Falcon FPV! :-)

My quick efforts.

One daytime sky from London (including crane which you may want to remove)
One evening sky from Antigua.

Not perfect, but then I should really be working....

actually any sky or background we add should be motion blured, cuz with a 1/40th shutter speed he must have been panning to get the shot. and the wall and bushes in the background are motion blured as well.

Not really a serious attempt, but I kinda like it. I did motion-blur the sky, but the borders got a little bit skewed ;):
