Well... yet another departure for me. I've NEVER photographed cars before. What an education I got!
You seem to be good at anything you try!
Even though I am not so much into car shots, I can tell that this one is good.
Panning has so far not become my forte... far from it!
uh.... I suppose I should fess up...
No panning here. There was NO time! Man, these things are FAST! Can you see the tire up off the ground?
I did a bit of motion blur to the background. It was so busy. I also brought down the tones is the background.
Thanks for the kind words!
Holy Cow...what an awesome shot. That should be in a car mag. Very well done !!!
I agree with Chiller.
Wow Pete, that is great, and yeah, I DO see that wheel coming off the ground. How did you bring down the tones in the background?
I floated a layer of the car with the foreground over the original image. I then made the adjustments to the background layer (blur and darken). Finally, I used the eraser in brush mode to clean the edges of the new layer.
I'd bet there's a better way to do this, but that's how I got it done.
Thanks to all for the kind words!
Nicely done and your PS work is subtle, it looks natural to me!
A case where departure is a good thing Good picture and the blur works well.
That is one amazing car photo. Very well done
