    I am impressed by that Ferrari set. The composition and use of lines are excellent :tup:

    Thanks man, I always have problems placing flares because they seem too harsh all the time.

    Thanks for your advisement. I pulled some strings here and there and here is the result.

    Welcome here Cruz :cheers:
    That's an interesting start with some good shots, original angles. The F430 on SSRX set is good :tup:
    Nice start also in the editing world :) Maybe a little bit too much yellow in your last edit but the car looks great with this contrast and the faded colors :tup: Nice license plates adding also, maybe you should reduce a little bit the luminosity of the plate to make it more realistic.

    Thank you for your wise words Kodje :cheers:. I actually tried to blend the licence plate as you can see in 2 and 3, but in the rest of the photos the sun was hitting the front of the car directly, so i just dropped the opacity a bit.

    Here it is the edit that I've been working in a while. It's a bit ambitious, but I think it came out well.

    Original

    1 - With licence plate

    2 - With damage on the front

    I'd appreciate comments to help me get better at this.
    Hope you enjoy this edit:gtpflag:

    That's not bad at all for a first rain edit.

    I like the way you've edited the sky, and the mist on the tree, it creates a good atmosphere in the scenery. The toning, the luminosity are also good and fit perfectly a rain edit. The rendering of the bodycar is also good.

    The "projections" are not bad but they could be improved with some spray in addition to the "smoke".

    The rain is not bad, maybe a little bit too much thin and regular.

    The main "problem" is the lack of the car reflection on the road.

    Maybe the original pic needs a little bit more speed effect also.

    But great first try mate :cheers:

    Thanks man, I just don't see how am I going to place the car reflection. I though about that while I was editing it but the car is in movement. My photoshop skills are not that good I think, but I'll definitely try to work on it.:cheers:

    Here is my newest set. It's about Goodwood Festival. I was doing the races again and i just thought: why not to make some type of series? So i'll be posting 3 photos of each car from Goodwood festival. Here are the first 3. I'll start with the Ferrari Dino.

    I really like that last one! even with a lower res than at first, its still ridiculously high-detailed!

    Nice work again mate :)

    The trueno edit is fun :) I like the Dino set, the first one is well edited, I like the toning of the second one but maybe there is a little bit too much sharpness (or it's a special effect which give this look maybe). the last one is perfect : great composition, beautiful bokeh, nice use of the b&w and a subtle edit.

    Maybe you should post your photo in bigger size to allow us see them better, why don't open a flickr (or other) account ?

    For the rain edit have a look here : https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/extreme-weather-edits.257791/

    Hey, Kojde, what are the benefits of having a flickr account? Im not sure myself weather or not to open one, because it requires a yahoo account. are there good reasons to use flickr?

    Thank you man! I actually have a Flickr account, I just don't use it too often. I might go and take a look at the extreme weather edit thread. But i really struggle to find decent textures, that's one of the problem. I agree with you, that second image is too sharp (too much high pass), only noticed that now. Thanks man:cheers:

    I'm not paid by Yahoo ;) but flickr has many advantages in my opinion (maybe others have a lot of also) :

    - free up to 200 pics and not very expensive* to be unlimited (25$ a year I think)
    - the image quality is good
    - you can upload .jpg or .png pic (png is better to keep the quality)
    - it's easy to use (my opinion)

    And most of all there is a large GTP community on flickr with lot of comments & even discussions sometimes.

    * Not for everyone I know. Some have more income than others...
