^ Obviously, but it's in your portfolio and makes you look lazy. I'm just trying to help you get better. ;)

I have to admit, there are some details I don't see till somebody point them out. Thanks

The wipers don't bug me on that car nearly as much as the symmetrical reflections on the fenders. I would remove them, since the shot implies that there's nothing to reflect.


I have a ton of gear, but my gear is just a hammer.

I would've just straightened out the initial image and called it good like that. It looks 1,000 times better than the after image. Just my 0.02.

Yeah I'm going back to it later, Thanks. I'm new to all this so I'm just basically messing with PS to learn the different tools better.

One of the first few attempts on light painting. The before shot is only one of a few exposures.

Yeah it was fun! Was really clueless how it turns out at first, but got it right after about 5 tries.

Lost a bit of quality near the windshield/front quarter panel, need to work on that for next time.

Super simple edit, when you get the body lines right in the camera, not much else is needed.
