    How much PS fiddling was done in #3? did you apply the background blur aftewards or did you manage to get it done when you shot the original pic?

    Lots! Lol

    Erm, yeah, a layer mask and then motion blur on the background - quite simple, but dramatic result. The trouble is there were gawping people, so I had to do something to minimise them!

    I really like this car but I would have shot it from the ground up. The front end is very distinctive. That said, those #$! gawkers do tend to get in the way. Bet it wasn't easy to get these as car shows tend to pack em in. Nice work.

    If you look carefully, you can see that there's a bloody glass rail running for around about 3ft off the ground. It's covered in toddler fingerprints and is precisely the right height to arse up that shot you mentioned!! :lmao: I did take it, but couldn't get it right!

    I personally like the first photo with all the mechanical parts. The lighting suits it well and its nice and crisp. Good work ^_^
