Good job, but "many, many hours"? IF you already knew what you wanted to do, that looks like about 10 minutes worth to me. One minute to adjust the WB & exposure + 8 minutes to blend in the fog. What did you do besides that?

I also see blur added to give the feeling of motion, but I agree. It shouldn't have taken hours.

If 5 or 10 mins is all you are willing to spend on an image then don't expect anything good to come out of it.

I can see where the time went into that image, I often spend hours on an image going backward and forward on small adjustments till I'm happy. It's all the little things you take the time to do that all come together to make an image great. Having said that most of the time is spent sipping coffee and staring at the screen wondering what I can do to make an image better.

I agree with you, but based on what the OP said, he seems to have some fundamental PP problem, which is why I asked, "What did you do besides that?"

I spend quite a long time editing my shots, even if its just simple edits cause I spend time looking at the small details.. I don't understand how you can edit in less than 10 minutes... Quality not Quanity...

Man, if you could make that exact photo in 10 mins Ill give up photography entirely. Post process does take alot of time and I know what its like. When I did the shoot of the Mclaren, came home with about 170+ shots, in the end only selected about 18 to actually edit and make final versions. Took me I think over 6+ hrs to edit them.

At first the photo may seem like a "simple" edit, but alot of small details need to be adjusted to get the overall feel of motion in the shot. Its not simply selecting half the frame, radial/motion/whatever blur and done...

I like what you did with the shot, only minor adjustment, you left a bit of uncolored pavement right underneath the car probably when doing the layer mask for the ground.
