    Great job. I am hoping some day I can start editing my shots with confidence instead of using photobucket's effects.

    Why would anyone do that? These photos are gorgeous! And that motion blur one, great job! Were you asleep when you said that your bad at Photoshop? Because these definitely are not bad!

    uMadson - :cheers: man, the watermark. Um, I must do some designs, and replace the GT watermark :p

    Primus Ortus - Thanks a lot man, I will make them smaller (I think I'm starting to get the hang of clickable shots :p. Oooh, I see what you mean. I know umadson noted it on the first Subie shot, but there's some at the top of the Dunlop bridge. Though I don't think it's very bad anywhere else. :cheers:

    Nato_777 - As I said with Primus, I didn't think it was that bad, only in the first Subie shot as umadson pointed out, and the Dunlop Bridge.
    :cheers: It might take me while to get the hang of this :p

    ashes619 - Believe me, photo shop's effects are better. Try and get it for your shots, I hope you can edit your shots better, because your angles and settings are awesome :tup: :cheers:

    SVX - I was half asleep, if that counts. It was 1 in the morning (I think) at the time, almost all of these were edited when I was half asleep :p :cheers: Well, I guess photoshop is easier to use than I thought :)

    Hello GTP users, this is the new update :p

    The LFA, sorry to copy others by using the LFA, but I only just got one in GT5 and enjoyed driving it :indiff:

    Great job Skython. I like the last LFA shot the best - it looks nice with the angle of the shot with the slight body roll on the turn. Nice colors and composition as well. :tup:

    Like the shots there, for a first venture into photoshop you're getting the feel for it real quick. A couple of comments; lens flare effect can set off a shot brilliantly, but it's best used sparingly, and be subtle with it. The Subaru pic works well composition-wise but the lens flare is too strong against the rest of the picture.

    Of the LFA set I particularly like the first shot. It's got a real sense of style and atmosphere that the rest of the pictures lack, though they're all pretty good. Don't ever worry about shooting a car that other people have done before either; there's a good chance you will see an angle that hasn't been exploited, or a composition that works well. In fact, don't be afraid to try and copy shots of others that you like; it's a great technical exercise and is good practice in using photoshop.

    Keep it up :)

    Skython, stunning work lately. :tup:
    Great work on the LFA. I have yet to do a set with it, and it looks so damn good here.
    I just have a request to ask.
    Could I 'borrow' the last LFA shot - without the signature and any editing? I'd love to try and edit it. It just looks fantastic. :):tup:

    Stunning work with the LFA. :tup: It's such a great car to drive and photograph every gallery should have at least one set. ;)

    Thanks everyone

    Soloracer3 - :cheers:, stunning is a strong and awesome word ;)

    NBDESIGNZ - To be honest I thought it was a little overdone, and I was too lazy to fix it :p :cheers:

    Ashes619 - :cheers: I see you're drooling with that :p

    Primus Ortus - That shot seems to be a favourite right now :odd:, I'm surprised that people like that one :cheers:

    Super Veloce - :cheers:

    Boozybloke - I definitely see what you mean with the Subie with lens flare, it doesn't work, too overpowering. My lens flares are definitely not subtle :lol:, I'll keep this in mind. I'm surprised that's the best, the others are all too similar, to be honest. That was the last one I did, by then I was bored, so I tried doing something different, I'm happy with the result. :cheers: I will keep all of this in mind when I make a new update.

    Fishyjuice - I sent you an unedit (I think) And what do you mean lately :dopey: :cheers:

    Nato_777 - I think I might agree, it looks so... Different :p :cheers:

    There was going to be an update, but the current edits haven't been going too well, pixels everywhere. :p On a serious note, this update might take awhile, hope you like it when I finally let it rip I mean release it :p :cheers:

    Found the set meh, I only like the 2nd and 3rd shots.

    Or maybe it's because the composition isn't really my taste.

    umadson - :cheers: and maybe it is meh, hopefully I don't keep on letting you down.

    Kanicky - :cheers: I was hoping to capture a sunset-like look there.

    Very small update, just a look into what's coming

    As previously previewed, as Subaru Impreza at Toscana, but this time UNFINISHED (Right here a facepalm smiley would come in handy :p

    The jaggies will be gone in a day or two (or never)

    Your pics are good. Two things though, do not put up the edited and unedited photos. Pick your favorite of the two and post just one. The best photographer is his own editor. Second, bigger isn't always better. I have a 20meg internet connection and use a HDTV as a monitor. Page 8 took forever to load and the site resized your photos to make them fit. Wasted space and bandwidth. If you need gigantic photos to capture your audience, you need to rethink your photos.
    But your pics are coming along nicely and you don't need any of those crutches anymore. You are a better photographer than that.

    BryCivicSi - Yeah the unedit and edit were just to show at first that I'd actually done something, just as an intro. Now I do it the right way ;). From now on I post them on the page at 640X480 or something. And they link to a bigger image for anyone who wants to inspect (but then again, who'd want to ;)) I don't know what you mean with the crutches but I presume it's a good thing :p. :cheers: Thanks for giving me some needed constructive criticism.

    umadson? - I do agree the Viper pretty dodgy, but I suck at blurring things that aren't side on :p :cheers:

    Soloracer3 - I take it you like strange blur effects then :p. Only joking, thanks for commenting, :cheers:

    SVX - So YOU like strange blurring too :mad: :p. Yet again, joking is the source. Thanks mate, :cheers:.

    Nato_777 - :cheers:, your the third to like the Viper's odd blurring :p, there's a theme of people liking a particular shot, must be doing something wrong. :cheers:

    kanicky - YES WE ALL LIKE THE DAMN VIPER, in all seriousness, thanks for commenting mate, :cheers:.

    SuperVeloce - :cheers:, exclamation marks sums it up, I'm feeling a bit up myself now :p. Thanks :).

    Now after feeling up myself for about two weeks, I've decided to get around to doing a few more edits (I got a bit lazy) Here we go.

    Over in Japan, America is fighting with POWER.

    On the subject of the Viper, I was at the Red Bull Hangar, for some reason.

    LMS, GT Spec II Test Car and the last Z/28 are great. And I'll need to find that 'conference room' at the Hangar. Never seen that before. :lol::tup:

    I like the Subaru - Shots a lot and love the R8 LMS - Shot!
    Very nice reflections for a standard.

    The rest is also very good, but these shots just stand out

    Another great job, your editing is really contributing to your photos - I feel you have the balance just right - not over or under edited. Well done. :tup:
