[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all,
here's another one of my dad's Porsche Carrera 4s, taken on the way back from a trip into the desert. There's some kind of oilfield in the background, complete with flare.
The original picture (which is in Workshop) was taken at dusk using a monopod and, I think, is a bit dark - I didn't have my SB800 flash then - but I liked the shot enough to play with it and this is the result.
Curves adjusted (rapidly becoming my favourite trick!)
Cheers, John.

Hi Winder,
Good compositions. Details and sharpness well focused. I can't imagine if I hv and drive this car.
Good efforts,

Hi John,

I must say that porsche is one of my favorite cars (especially the old 911s). This is a wonderful modern style photo with plenty of interesting colors, lines, and repetitive shapes. Since I've discovered photofiltre and post processing, I am amazed at how one can change the photo (saturation rocks!) thanks for sharing, Lisa

Hi Winder,

I think I prefer the original, although this does have some pleasing colours too it.

Wow, I like this, the front of the Porker looks like a shark's maw! I the background is the Jebel Dukhan (Mountain of Smoke in English) and on the top is the Tropspheric Scatter Station (try saying that after a few pints). I cycled up to that the other day, 1 in 4 hill, I could not say anything at all after getting to the top! Good PP work! Cheers, Dad
