That paint looks sweet as under those lights, I'd love to have a play with that image.

Here's my contribution. This is one of my friend's 2005 WRX I took when I was visiting him a few years ago.

Camera Info
Nikon D80 17-35 f2.8
shutter speed:1/200; aperture: f5.6; ISO 100

Lighting Info
Single SB-600 camera left for fill on front of car

Processing Info
1- Single RAW conversion to "HDR" file
2- Tone mapped in photomatix
3- File opened in ACR - Contrast, clarity, vibrance increased slightly
in photoshop:
4- Curves > Linear Contrast
5- dodged the wheels and part of the body
6- burned the windows, part of ground, black in wheel wells, black in grille

I actually like the "after tone mapping shot" as opposed to final shot... looks kind of HDRish.

Here's a video on the processing of this shot. Lots of light painting here and merging all the layers in photoshop and masking off the appropriate parts.

Great shot and great composite but for some reason, the cars just don't seem to fit. Maybe they are a bit too bright compared to the rest.

I feel like i've seen your car before. This is a longshot, but is this the same supra that's in a youtube vid with an r32?

EDIT: I knew I have seen your car before. It was the same snow pics on the 4. I'm also on the 4, same username.

One of my first attempts at PP

I used Topaz Labs Lens Effects graduated ND filter to bring back the sky then tweaked levels, sharpening and contrast in Lr3

QUOTED IMAGE

Love the edit but not particularly fond of the way it increases the clarity of the reflections on the side of the truck. I don't use Topaz but get the same problems with LucisArt. Best fix I've found is to clone them out BEFORE running the filter. That having been said, the results you have above are awesome.

Wow; that is a beautiful car and the setting is not bad. However I don't think the vertical composition does it justice. The city background draws the eye from the car. Particularly the orange roofline.

Thanks Hinson!

Yes, the reflections are distracting. I also need to clone out the railing behind the truck. Thanks for the CC!

Thanks! Yeah normally I don't shoot vertically, but for some reason in that shot I did..

LOL...just had a "senior moment." For a moment, (just a moment mind you) I was thinking that if you cloned out the railing, then you wouldn't have the reflection to worry about.
