A while ago I had the chance to photograph this very clean BMW M3 SMG that was being offered for sale by the owner.

Recently I did some more post processing on it using a new workflow I was working on ... and to be honest I actually like the result :

If you are wondering how I got to this point from the original shot, take a look at the tutorial (external link) I've put together on this workflow.

Thanks for looking ...

Mark

Nice one! Except that the halo jumps out on my laptop.

Nice shot Mark, and nice pp. It's also cool for you to detail what you did to make the shot really pop. However, the rear photo on that page has a huge hot-spot on the driver's quarter. Why? You just got through telling people how to correct this with a negative EV shot+layer mask.

I like it a lot. The halo Frank mentioned is very slight on my monitor and it actually doesn't really detract from the picture to me.

I would have moved the car up... to get more of a reflection but nice shot as it stands.

Thanks for the comments, I actually like the halo, it's kind of like having a small flash behind the car I feel, but I understand not everybody likes it.

As for the reflection ... the puddle wasn't that big to be honest, I would have loved to get the entire car in the reflection, but it hadn't rained that much before ... we were about 20 minutes into the shoot when it started pouring down for a a few minutes, however we had already moved the car to another location on the industrial site ... by that time security was driving around so I didn't take a chance getting back to the first location ...

An oversight of the moment I'm afraid :oops:

Changed the shot with a different one that suits the tutorial better I think, the blue sky wasn't really what I wanted anyway ...

We used to do something similar with wet prints to draw attention to the subject of the image, but generally tried to make it not so noticeable.
