here's one I got from the road-course autocross this past weekend, the sun was pretty cool for this one, so I tried something a bit different than what I usually do. Just LR adjustments:

This is for Hinson. :)

Shot with a 1934 (or '35) Zeiss Ikoflex 6x6 TLR. LR5 used to enhance, as the lens has some issues that affect contrast and color rendition. Car is a 1938 Sharknose Graham

I need some help. When selecting a car, then adjusting the brightness, then selecting the background an doing the same, I get all these jagged edges around the car from the selection. What is the most accurate way possible to select the car?

In my opinion, the pen tool is the most accurate.

Depends on the editing software you're using lol. If you're in PS, refine the edge and feather it and you'll get a nicer feel to the edges of the adjustment. If you're in LR, use more feather I guess :P

Kirk, that blew me away. I LOVE the image and just...I'm speechless, very well done

Try this on the full resolution image. Its the overall best way that I've found for objects with hard edges: Selecting areas in PS.

True, but I'm not going to try & tut someone on that. The PLT does the job very well.

Thanks for the feedback. I knew some people would like the first one better. People either seem to really love or hate my style. I like to try to make the car look epic because that's how I see it in my mind, but I can see why others might not like it that way.

I have to agree with Jayson. You took a fender that had some nice tone & blew it out. A little less contrast in the body would work better for me. I like what you did with the background, though.

playing with the sony a7 to see if the raw files are any better than my 5d3. i shot it dark on purpose and edited like how i normally would to see how it comes out. I'm quite impressed

(^) I am also impressed haha, nice work.

For the Lambo, I LOVE when the background is all black and white and the car has all of it's colors, so I dislike your edit personally....on a not so personal level, it was pretty well done but could have used a bit less on the car itself :)

This is one of the 6 images I used to get the result below. All editted in RAW, blend into each other en did some more modification to get the result. Still not quite finished, but what do you think?
