    My buddy called me yesterday saying that his friend just got some new wheels (Volks :drool:) on his IS350, and wanted to know if I'd take a few pics he could send this brother. Sorry about the watermark :greddy: Who knows what forums these will end up on tho. :mamoru: Ended up with these:

    The winter colors around here really aren't that great. The car is white with satin black wheels, so I just desaturated the the picture to help out (IMO) a little

    I think I'd like them (2&3) with more color, and more motion blur. Maybe mask off the car and over saturate the background, and add some more blur to it?

    Minus the wheels, it looks just like my X's IS. :rofl: I really like the looks of these cars, but I always see chicks driving 'em.

    1st: Best of the bunch with a little less dodging I think. And get rid of the mysterious white square hovering in the trees or vines or whatever that is.

    2nd: Should've cloned out the passengers face.

    3rd: I can see a little halo effect on the 3rd one around the front and rear of the car.

    Yeah, I need to send a little more time on these. Each one has maybe 3-4 minutes in LR spend on them. Mostly with the brush tool adjusting exposure.

    Bring the highlights back a bit. I like that it stands out but some sections look blown out, check for clipping in LR, it'll show you where it is.

    I tried brining them back down, but couldn't get it to work without looking funny. My skillz suck.

    Thanks bro. It's basic. Simple, yet elegant IMO. Shame we have the same initials. :bigthumb:

    Looks a little flat.

    Although, I'm anti-hdr, but I think it would help you in this case.
