Default Classic Desert Rally - UAE

Took a drive out into the desert today to shoot a classic car rally. I'm trying some different processing techniques so please tell me what you think of these.

Nice series, that RS2000 is a cracker, dont see enough these days.
The Porsche shot's my favorite with that vast expanse of dessert and dust trail, Is this in Dubai?

I must admit I NEVER liked this sort of pp, though I must admit you did it pretty well. However, and this is how it always ends up unless you spend a good amount of time on it, you can still see the lighter halo surrounding the car. With the pictures YOU take, you really don't need to go that extreme on it.

They're still awesome shots though

Nicely composed shots, but IMHO the PP is overdone, and looks false - particularly in #1.
