    Great job on all of these! But you forgot to get rid of some powerlines over the middle building in your first set.

    You did a good job, though the last two were good shots before the touch up as well.

    May be I will be against people who leave here comments, but I will add my five cents. In my private opinion pictures “after” worst then “before”. Why? We have color, light, focus and composition to put an attention to some point(s) of picture. First target is to find an idea of every picture. What I want to say with this picture. How I can support this idea? What I can(should) use for it. You did in these pictures nice saturation and contrast, but --- you did it for full picture. And this (on my opinion) is wrong. You should use a mask(s) before apply these effects. For example desaturate background on second one. Make sky darker on the first one. To fix a geometry(perspective distortion) problem on third instead of working with color. But this again, is my private opinion.

    I have to agree with emayd. You chose a good amount of contrast and saturation, but it cannot be applied universally to the image. You have blown highlights in each image. Use adjustment layers whenever you can.

    do you think that the point in the blown highlights was a purpose when i photoshopped these images?i always shoot with a plan... i dont just snap shot.. half of these shots are pre-drawn.. lighting times written down.. all for a reason.. then to add contrast to the images is what i chose to do... remember, im a 90% film shooter.... over half of the film im shooting now is in the studio... but when i do my own thing, i purposely add contrast... why? cuz i like contrast... so you got to remember that im working in my own opinion in the way "I" want to do things... not that your comments dont mean anything.. but i have things planned when i shoot them..

    hey everyone, chill for a second. Prelude, i hate to nag but emayd and Digital Matt are just giving suggestions to help with your next photoshop work. Like emayd said, it's her private opinion, and some people like different styles of pictures. Matt isn't forcing you to change your pics. by the way, love them all, especially the third. Tell me, since I'm a total n00b, do you just expose a shot for like 2 seconds when you want cars to appear like a smeared line of light?? Cuz that's the effect I want to try but I don't know how.
