    Splendid secret santa R8 shot :tup: Was my choice and very glad you win that poll :cheers:
    I like very much all your others entries, especially the Miura one which is beautiful with a great light.
    And that beetle shot is excellent :tup:

    Sweet entries mate. The Miura is beautiful, excellent colour and nice light. The beetle shot is also a standout for me, very clean and it's almost comical with the wheels off the ground. ;)

    But the best of the bunch is your R8 secret santa entry, just an awesome shot with stunning light, sense of speed and realistic toning. Well deserving of that win. :tup: :tup:

    Thanks Jeremy, I was very happy with the R8 shot and of course happy to win with it. Glad you like the others too - that beetle is fun with 200 bhp. :D

    Thanks George - the Miura is a beautiful car, I can't believe I only just bought one - what was I thinking! :dunce: Had some fun with the beetle and tuned up to the max it's easy to throw it on to two wheels. :)
    I'm kind of kicking myself I didn't hold that R8 shot back for the upcoming 2.0 Tourney qualifier as everything just came together so nicely with that shot/edit and is one of those rare occurances that I can't replicate if I try. :)
    ~~~~~~

    Well I'll just throw up a couple more shot for the moment;

    Firstly another edit I started for the Fast German Awesome SSC theme but I soon found myself doing a little more to it than 2.0 rules allowed so it's just a standard to premium cleanup instead.

    A little more difficult with the liveries but I enjoyed the extra challenge. :)

    Great stuff Nathan. I knew my chances at the SSC were blitzed when I saw the R8 shot!! In a league of its own:tup:
    Any chance of a pocket-rocket tutorial...perchance...?:D

    Wonderful shots Nathan - love the Pocket Rocket edits. :) That R8LMS is probably the best of that car that I've seen on GT5 - great tones and cleanup. :tup:

    Thanks Eric - I may do a tutorial sometime. ;)
    Cheers Lee. :)
    Thanks.
    :O Many thanks Dave. :)
    Definitely have a go at a pocket rocket edit - they are fun to do. Yeah the Merc was pretty bad from that close and that angle and it was a lot of work to fix so I'm glad you like it. :)
    Thank you sir - I'll keep adding the occassional "PR" edit from time to time. :)

    I don't think the set would be as good with a sunny and dry atmosphere. This is an awesome JGTC set, Nathan! :tup:

    Very good work on this set Nathan :tup:
    A great collection of various angles and compositions, a beautiful light and a realistic toning :)
    The #12 was the best choice for the Momentum competition (and mine in this awesome poll) with a very realistic apperance, a great contrast and a superb composition (and a good use of noise).
    But there are some others shots which stand out from the set : #2, #7, #8, #9 and #10.
    Good job mate as usual :cheers:

    I commented on Flickr, but wanted to comment here as well, since the set is so great. Beautiful atmosphere and mood - every shot tells a story and is wonderfully composed. Tones are rich and the multi-car shots are excellent. Great work Nathan! :tup:

    Really liking what you did in terms of post-editing, Nathan. All shots have great lighting to them and the individual compositions make the whole set so much more interesting! :tup:

    Superb work, Nathan. I really like how you used cold tones to create an atmosphere.
    Lightning is also very good. My favorites are 2, 4, 5, 12 and 13.

    And your style still shows and hold true, it's very easy to spot a Nato photo when you see one. :p Neat job, digging the clean tones and the well done job on angles and compositions.
