    I've managed to get a couple of updates ready, and I'll put them on over the next couple of days. This first one is maybe a little late coming as I've had the GT R for a while now, but here we go

    A small but perfectly-formed update featuring the unused shots from this weeks (week 9) head to head photo comp. All have been fettled in photoshop.

    Thanks! Now I've started using Photoshop on most of my shots it's surprising how much difference a lttle bit of sharpening, colour levelling and noise can make to a picture. It really adds another dimension to your photos and thankfully, judging by the comments, its for the better :)



    Edit to say: No updates now till after the weekend, but I have one in the pipeline- clues are; British, 12, mental, Online collectors dealership

    Picked this up from the OCD and figured a photoshoot was required

    I changed my week 9 photocomp entry at the last minute to this;
    [​IMG]
    Tried to make it look like an old polaroid, with limited sucess. I guess I will have to see if I make it through to the poll

    Still not especially 'imprezed' with my last update I was determined to make my next one a good deal better, and spurred on by this weeks (week 10) Subaru Vs Mitsubishi competition I came up with these, left over from my session to create an entry (top)

    In a further fit of productivity spurred on by the superb entries in the first GT5 Photoshop 'Unlimited' competition I decided to make an un-entry of my own. I know it wouldn't have won, but I'm pretty happy with it as a first attempt

    Thanks for stopping in! All comments gratefully recieved :)

    Another update off the back of the photocomp. The top one was my entry and therefore not edited, but then I changed it to the 7th pic unedited version. Now all are edited.

    Getting on a motivational poster vibe

    The one thing that sticks in my mind about the SLR is watching it on Topgear smashing out the fastest time. This is a tribute to that lap which was quickest by about 3 seconds and remained on top for a loooooong time

    Comments are welcome, thanks for looking

    I though I commented here, but I guess i was getting off the bus or something and forgot.

    anyway, I really like the one with the foggy windmills. That actually reminds me a lot more of top gear than the top gear track. Every time they bring a car to wales, they would show off the massive landscapes. Really puts it into perspective... a brand new piece of technology that only was around for a hundred odd years, and put it on a billion year old landscape.

    Minimarco - Thanks for stopping in. Yeah, I quite like that shot too, it took quite a while fading out the background part to look right. Even though the game is about the cars really, the amount of interesting, and quite frankly pretty, topographical features is quite amazing.

    SVX - Thanks for the comment mate, glad you think so :)

    Update of experimental stuff
    After looking through MiniMarcos gallery at some of his excellent experimental stuff, I was inspired to do a bit of experimental/abstract stuff myself. Have a look and see what you think. I'd really like some feedback on this so please leave some comments

    This one was just some practice trying to make a retro looking photo after my dismal showing in the last 2.0 comp

    This was just playing with some techniques and I kind of like the result

    This one's not bad. actually looked pretty cool. For next time try setting the noise to 'monochromatic' so the whole thing doesn't look pixelated. When you get grain from film, it's not colored like that. Or, better yet, try using texture layers, and set the blending mode accordingly ( i'm pretty sure you have photoshop), then reduce the opacity. otherwise a very good effort. it looks really cool. could be a good box art for a model car.

    thanks for the tip mate, I'm using photoshop elements running on a netbook, so it's not exactly the same as the full fat version, and the screen is pretty small so its hard to see sometimes, but I will try what you suggest

    @ Ghertel; Thank you very much, It's great to get positive comments from a big-hitter such as yourself :)

    @ MiniMarco; No, thank you for the inspiration! It's great that people can bounce ideas off each other in this way- I look forward to seeing your future work :tup:

    @ Spyda; Thanks! I'm pretty happy with them. Shame the Skyline didn't do a bit better (it didn't reach the poll) Better luck next time, eh? :)

    Shelby Cobra, pop art style
    More experimenting, this time pop art poster style. Let me know what you think, colour, composition, and does the smoke look alright? I created it in PS and I'm not sure if it works

    [​IMG]

    Edit to include this second picture I've just finished; same thing, what do you guys think?

    I've been off the boards for a bit lately, but I'm glad I looked into your gallery now that I'm back... I'm with a couple of the others here regarding the wonderful shot of the SLR with the windmills in the background. That is a stunning image; you captured a terrifically-moody shot there... :tup:

    Wow, thanks, it's a pleasure to get positive feedback from someone so talented.

    If I'm honest, I thought the picture was ok, I faded out the background and I thought it looked better than the original, I didn't realise I was sitting on what would be such a popular image!

    A nice normal series of shots this time. The Cobra really is a joy to capture, it just looks good from any angle. Enjoy

    And this was the banner that I constructed to present this little set, but for the life of me I cannot work out how to make it work. If anyone fancies sorting it for me...? ;)
