Photoshopping cars onto backgrounds doesn't really work well, this is no exception. Neither does selective color.
It is not intended to be a picture I am going to sell. My Dad's car is not available to us for driving to a good location and getting pictures. So I take pictures where I can, like a car show and am making something of it. My Dad keeps his cars locked in his garage. He had his mustang locked in there for 15 years and it did not see the light of day for that long until he decided to bring it to a car show and it will be in there another 15, I am sure.
This Edsel only had 100 miles on it before it was parked in a garage for 30 or 40 years. He too, finally took it out to the car show. So that is why it is a PP car on a road. Much nicer picture than a picture with a bunch of peoples legs and things. I did get some interesting perspectives of the car at the car show, but I just do not believe it is as special as what he has here.
But thank you for your imput. I do a lot of creative PP work and do get paid for it. I have an entire gallery for it on my website. Some not as good as others. I do not really like selective color and agree with you there and I really do try to avoid it as much as possible, but I just kinda like the way it looks in the picture instead of all black. The all black and white version of the last picture just does not do it for me.
However, I have been having problems with getting the perspectives just right. I have made these pictures for other cars at car shows and those I got pretty right, but I am struggling with it this time. I will take a look at it and see if I can get it more accurate.
Thanks though. I do appreciate your imput.
