Brilliant transformation! How did you get it so much brighter? Just adjust the exposure/brightness?

And putting two exposures with different polar filter settings together ...

before :

after :

I purposely didn't remove all the reflection to keep the car 'shiny', otherwise you might think it's a mat white Bimmer ;)

Want to take a look at all the steps ? Just take a look at my quick explanation (external link)

This is a skill I definitely need to hone! I'm not so crazy about spending forever doing it, but I need some way to punch up the pics some! Boyfriend's not so keen on the idea, lol, says it makes them look 'fake'. It's a way to make it pop or just save an otherwise bad photo.

And if it's for a client, it'll wow 'em. As I'm sure plenty of these have! Great work!

Thank you, if it can help you with your post processing skills I'm happy, I had to learn the hard way and there aren't that many online sources that deal with car photography specifically so I think it makes sense for me to put some small things online to help out.

You forgot to put the new background in the window of the mini, I can still see a fence, dirt and rocks through the glass :)

And a little run down on the steps :
IMAGE: http://www.weebly.com/uploads/2/7/8/4/2784216/custom_themes/496091/files/Jeep-Poster-Steps.jpg

Step 1: This is the Original Photo used. A decent quality, high res photo is important. You cant fix crap. LOL

Step 2: Next I cloned, cloned, cloned and cloned out a lot of the bad stuff(asphalt,decals,a​nd some rocks). I also cut out the sky and the parts of glass that looked all the way through. Some minor reflection adjusting.

Step 3: Next I color adjusted, brightness and contrast and curves, along with a warm photo filter to get the color I wanted. I also added a partial transparent layer for the new glass in the windows so it wasn't a perfect see through to the sky.

Step 4: Last but not least was find a good high res clouds photo with a similar angle and add it the layer behind everything. Then color adjusted it all to match. Blurred the mountains in the bg a bit, and blurred the edge of the rock where it meets the sky layer.

Hope this help a bit. This was a fairly easy photo to get a good result as the rock wall in the background is a great place to cut along and add a new bg. Plus the angle worked well because its a low shot shooting up so the sky layer could be all sky if i wanted it to.

Very nice on the jeep. Steps 2-3, was that just a color layer overlayed?
