    It was going to be a top 6 poll per side but due to the high number of entries this week I've extended it to 8 per side.

    Good luck to those that made it and just for fun here's my own interpretation of my theme - Evil side

  8. A bit too dark, I think it would have been better off with a different filter or none at all. Good composition though. :tup:

    Thanks, any tips on how to edit a picture for more realism?. Somehow i always end up making them too over the top.:(
     
  10. I find for most of my pictures now (I'm saying now, because my editing style has changed), I will mostly duplicate the background layer and put the blending style to soft light or hard light, then reduce the opacity if there are some areas that are too dark of too over-exposed. Then mess with the colour balance a little, and add a soft vignette.

    My editing is much more subtle, I suppose, than before. But I like it.


    Oh and if the shot is dark, don't bother duplicating the picture and doing the soft light effect, everything will just be too dark. That's really all I do.

    I'll actually even give you an example. :p

    Here is the stock shot; here is the edited version. This is actually my CCCL entry for this week. I didn't change around much, but I feel like it made a big difference overall.

    Just had to give my vote to the prius. It takes skill to make the weeniest car ever look like a machine of doom, but it was pulled off nicely.
