Decided to finally attempt putting one of the cars in a different bg instead of doing a desat. Some of them still dont look too good even with a desat when they are a bit crowded in the bg. Used gimp to layer the car over the bg and then erased the bg, then tried, and I did say tried, to fix up a shadow. Any tips on the shadow part are welcome...The exif data is from the bg shot at the beach at Coolangatta and the car is at the football stadium at Robina,with early morning sunlight against the building. Will try to post both shots as a ws.

An amazing green result by artwork of graphic designs indeed great details and lights
this is a beautiful poster well done FIONA WECKER

Hi Fion
Unforunately I can offer no advice, but it looks to me like you don't really need it. A good result.

Love the sheen across the body.
I play around with the sat levels at times, making some interesting looks.


You did a wonderful PP work on this old classic! Love the colors. Very well done, tfs.

Hello Wacky

A fine job on the pp work.......wow. I think the shadowing is fine. Just use a little patience.


Hi Fiona,
great PP work, Pete is the expert on shadows but I think you have done a great job here, its only the reflections on the bodywork and windscreen that are little tell-tale signs that its been planted on the beach

  • Great

Hi Fiona
Nice car, strangely shown. I like the sharpness and the bright. Good work.


Bom dia Fiona,
I enjoyed the PW you did. Putting a face so bright and reflective object is not easy, nor is it for anyone.
The neutral BG is sure helped a lot, but you could at least do not disturb this item very good overall impression of the picture.
