    Quite nice Primus. I like the warm toning on these. The second one is a little better to me, a bit more dynamic and more balanced in it's composition.

    Those are both great - superb editing with fantastic tones as always. I prefer the second shot mostly for the sense of action. :)

    The same applies to the second shot. It does have a slightly better composition, though. :tup:

    Thanks GPR - I agree with you on the composition. Honestly, there were some things I liked about the shot, such as the tone of the GTR, lighting, warmth, and the dodge work I did to the vehicle to add wear/tear, but there were a couple of things that always seemed off - the composition because of the background and the slight fish-eye effect. On the other hand, the fish-eye gives it a greater sense of speed.

    Thank you Nato. The second shot appeals to me for a few reasons. There are some subtle things that you can't pick up without looking at the expanded photo, such as the light/color changes in the trees and the subtle desaturation of color from the center to the periphery of the photo. On the other hand, there is one thing that I simply don't like about the photo - the vehicles are not representative of the same era. Can't win 'em all, I guess. :indiff:

    Thanks GT-R - agreed. ;)

    Thank you HaerBev. That car actually took quite a bit of piece work. I did different things for different parts. I softened the hood, scrubbed out some of the posterization and cloud reflection, desaturated the car and added some glow, whereas with the grill, I increased detail. You should take that car out for a photomode op. I like it for it's character - it turns into a pretty decent DTM.

    Thanks G! I like that photo too, but I'd take out the lens flare if I were to do it over. :)

    Another re-edit. (Sorry for the re-edit's, I just don't have much time to get on the PS3 and kick out new photos at the present...) This one is an old scenic shot I did as part of a Toscana set. I liked the dreaminess of it, but always felt that it needed something more. This edit was an attempt at a cinematic feel. Sun coming up, you can almost feel the warmth on your face. Stretch and take a deep breath. Life's good. :)

    I love that shot, as well. Contrast, lighting and composition are phenomenal. The smooth colour transitions add quite a bit to the realism of the photo. ;)

    Beautiful shots mate. For my part I liked both version of the GTR shots... (I saw them on flickr). Hard to choose a fav' : the sense of motion and the balance is maybe better in the one you let here. And superb landscape :tup:

    Thank you Lee! Just me trying to escape mentally from work... :guilty:

    Thank you Nathan - I sure appreciate it. :)

    Thanks GPR - I'm glad you like it!

    Thank you GT-R - I spent alot of time on the colour transitions, both in the sky and on the ground. I'm glad that came out. :tup:

    LOL. Thanks Qnrad!

    Thank you NBD - I'm trying... :)

    Thanks Giulietta73 - kinda makes me want to be there sitting in an easy chair just relaxing...ahhhh... :)

    Thanks alot Kodje! They both have their pros and cons. Like someone else said, composition is a bit off, but tone is ok. :)

    Okay, another remix. This is one I hesitated to mess with, but I wanted something more realistic on this go-around. Here's the original edit. I also played around with the lighting. Make sure you click on it, because bigger is better... :sly::

    I have to agree with Lilmann. This edit looks so much nicer, much cleaner looking too. :drool:

    I've been... Um... At the... Pet... Gym. Training my... New dog? I don't know, but I've come back now. :p

    Such an awesome photo in the first instance and the re-edit is much better than the first time around (though that was good itself), this one has the tones just perfect and the aspect ratio is more pleasing. :tup: :bowdown:
