I actually like the crop of the 'before, clone out the pole/sign on the right side, and do the same edit as on the 'after pic, you got a winner...oh, and I love the plate edit

I know everyone's post processing is usually kept secret, but I'm bored and feel like sharing. As you can see by this one, there's very little I actually did to it and got a quite dramatic change in the final product.

My before and after. Did a bit of cloning and that is really it. Otherwise just shadow/highlight with some cleanup.

Did you also edit the lights in? And cool location, looks a lot like a nearby high school parking lot.

Was this directed at me? Does it still show up that way or do I just not know how to internet?

Thanks Mike!

Just to add, as I mainly photograph cars something I do each shoot when I've got some ACR settings that work for those particular images is save it as a preset in ACR so I have a quick starting point for similar images in future. For instance I have "White cars overcast", "White cars sunshine", "Dark cars overcast" etc.

Often I'll cycle through these presets seeing if any work well with the image I'm working on. This one started with my preset called "White car evening warmth" which gave it this dark, yet glowing look.

That too, I missed that. And it is the local public library by my work.
