This must have been short with the 17-40 (^), the flare is rather large and the car on the left is warped pretty harshly, but I like the way it turned out other than that

got a question for you guys, is there anyway to get an accurate selection so i dont just have to color around the car? or do I just have to zoom in and be as careful as I can?

^ tbh, extremely well done

agreed! I'd put a slight gradient on the windows rather than just straight black, but it works very well.

Love it but do agree with above on the window treatment. Either a gradient or make them transparent.

Wow thanks guys! I do actually have a very slight gradient in the windows but its dark grey to black and I don't think it's strong enough. I'll boost it up a bit.

I actually really enjoyed that as a personal project/challenge. Its certainly increased the possible content for my website/facebook page given I'm not yet getting many opportunities to shoot supercars/exotics.

It's indeed on 17mm ;)

and i know it does but i like the overall image, didn't have lighting with me and trying to lit that part of the car was hell cause i shot it pretty dark, but i like the way it looks now, fits the theme.

Here's another one from then:

with lightroom there isnt really anything apart from using the brush and trying to be accurate with that.

Whereas photoshop has things like pen tool that allows very accurate selections

^ Same as what Mikehamilton says. The most "accurate" (I say that hesitantly lol) way to get a good "selection" (brush) in LR is to paint everything you have that you want to edit and do it roughly (Who cares if it's over the edges a bit) and then go in with the erase tool and take out all of the stuff you don't want edited for that specific brush. Personally I use LR for all those types of adjustments because I just would have to apply like 8 different brushes in PS for the same effect of just using one brush and adjusting all the sliders in LR. I hate PS for editing work but it's amazing for spot healing and cloning!

Try selecting auto mask on the brush in LR. Use that for around the edges of the car and then turn it off for the center.

How did you get the car + ground to pop that much?


Constructive criticism and editing always welcome.

Does LR have a selection tool like the PLT? Selecting areas in PS.

Not sure what PLT is but no it does not. The only option is to manually brush around areas and hope to avoid them as best as you can while getting an even application of the adjustment. Sometimes going in and nit picking the location of the brush makes it worse than if you get some "over spray".
