    Greetings,
    These shots are of my 1951 Ford F100 pickup, which has been in the family since 1952. It was originally my Grandfather's and he gave it to me with the stipulation that I restore it some day. Since the restoration is complete, time for a picture! I posted the out of the camera shot for reference. C&C welcomed!

    1. Unedited version:

    2. Edited shot:

    In the edit, I cropped the shot somewhat, cloned out the building, street light and sign. Then, on to Topaz Adjust to pump things up a little and finally, the unsharp mask. Let me know if you think this is too much or any other C&C you may have. Thanks for looking!

    Giving it another shot?

    The edit is nice except for the sky. It looks weird to me. You may want to get yourself a Polarizer filter. Not only would it help the sky but you would get rid of some of the reflections on the vehicle.

    Here's a link to read about it:

    I prefer the unedited version. The blue clouds in Picture 2 look a bit fake. But then again, the truck look ALIVE in picture 2:lol:

    Thanks for the info and yes, got new software and had to do another edit!

    I appreciate all of the comments and the sky is definitely the weak point of this shot.

    To fix some of the sky issues, I backed the blue saturation way back and cloned out a few of the areas that were beyond repair. Backing down the blues also helped with some other areas of the shot. This is my favorite so far...what do you think?

    Much better. But if you do much landscape photo a CP filter would be a great tool for you. And not a big investment.

    Nice shot and truck.


    Most people usually clone out their plate numbers.

    The plate in the picture is actually a vintage one and not the actual plate we use for daily use. Normally, I do blur or clone out the plate, but didn't feel the need to this time. Thanks for the comment.
