^ To quote the OP...

Problem is, you're going to find very few people that are willing to share exactly what they did to achieve their results. And that's a good thing really, all they need to do is provide a simple path, and let the viewer do some of the work figuring it out for themselves. The best part of that is learning something new, and maybe, just maybe they'll come up with something a little different in order to make it their own.

^ You're totally right. I'm not expecting everybody to share their process, but at least post a "before" pic. I should've bolded that part of the quote. :)

however, much like the automitive strobist thread, the whole point of this thread is to help learn and understand processing on automotive pictures. not posting at least a brief rundown of your techniques (or a 'before' picture) means there is no real point for posting anything in this thread.

Agreed :) I would love to see at least a before image of the car. You might have tricks that aren't easy to spot without a before and I might have questions, but I can't ask just by seeing an after image :(. Thanks for trying to get things back on track 96whiteknight

I recently found out about the 'VirtualRig Pro Studio' application. Went to their website to check it out, saw the price ($2499). Not worth it! - We can probably get an actual rig for way less. :(

You can buy a quality rig for under $1K (ask me how I know lol). However, some manufacturers require that VRS or a similar type of program is used. Many times they want to pick the environment and have the car placed in, or sometimes the car is a one-off and they don't want to use a real rig on it (but accidents involving damage from a rig are super rare, think lotto rare).

Yes Andrew, you're probably one of the most famous guys (been following you on flickr + here since) who knows his rig and can setup for others. Unfortunately, I'm in Pakistan and shipping the items would take more than 1k. + Can't afford much anyway < Bills.

Probably the most time I've ever spent editing a photo (a solid 90 minutes)...

Your before shot is phenomenal. For some reason I like the composition of the first shot more, but can't put my finger on why. Anyways, awesome work with cloning out the wire/fence.

probably because of the more staggered look :)

There are ways around that, I have shipped to Pakistan many times. PM me for details :)

Could be a tad brighter in the shadows, but as usual your shots look great

VisualEchos, I like the darks that you put in all of your photos :). Wouldn't be as dramatic if everything was perfect ;P.
