I Like what you've done with that picture! Good work!

Here's a before/after rig shot. I know it's pretty bland and boring and lacks interest but, my roommate just bought the 2012 mini coop and we were bored since we both just finished finals so we went out to shoot a bit:

SOOC Before:

processed with Camera Raw and then into CS5 for the cloning, and adding headlight lights from separate exposure, localized curves.

I was trying to think of something fun to do with the shot...but couldn't really muster anything up. There's a lot of blank space so there is room to do something creative with, any suggestions?

This thread ever piss anybody else off?? I mean there is some great work in here. But it's kind of upsetting seeing a horribly exposed, not well thought out snapshot (at best), being turned into a pretty cool (although over-processed) picture ALL through photoshop. Is this even photography anymore? Or is it digital art?

Maybe I'm just bitter because I suck at PS...

Are you sure the images you are speaking of are that?

Its extreamly common in automotive photography to shoot more than one photo and put them together to make your final...I wonder how many you are looking at a before base exposure of just part of the image and thinking they took a bad pic? (instead of when you take a single exposure and are forced to just shoot for a middle exposure of everything)

Why should it? Does the strobist thread piss people off because they only shoot natural light?

It's here to showcase peoples abilities in processing. If you can take a badly taken photo and make it look pretty nice then obviously you have some skill, show it off!

there's a couple ways to achieve badass pictures. Not that I have achieved this...cause I haven't, but in my mind, I either get the shot I want in camera on the spot that means exposure, lighting, composition is spot on with a location that rocks and nothing ever goes wrong so that when I get home all I have to do is run a preset for contrast, resize, and sharpen. Or, I just take pictures knowing that something is going to be wrong, or get really nit picky, thinking the whole time how I will fix it in post (which kind of ruins the fun of taking pictures in the first place).

The only thing that pisses me off about this thread is that no one is posting how they achieved the final shots!

Yea, that annoys me too. But I'm just as guilty as every one else. There's so many steps in my work that it'd take an entire page just to explain what all I did. I'm sure 99% of the others feel the same way too.

Great shot Courter! Love how you burned the bottom right of the image.

Here's one from last night. (final on flickr : http://www.flickr.com …revorthompson/7​007644531/ (external link))
The original shot was terrible and I have no excuse other than being lazy and missing the sunset by 10min
