i'd like to see what you did in photoshop, but for some reason, the pics are not posted when you replied. i made my version of the pics in photoshop. enhancing the colors, and the lense flare on the blinker lights. (i'm a freelance photographer). i basically eat, sleep, and breath photoshop  LOL

the color would be better if there were no glare on the windshield,and facing a different way so you could use the sun,and shadows more
but as it sets, the black,and white are deeper ,and creates a warm feel




i did have the car facing the other way on the road, but the road looked hideous the other way around because there were a few dump trucks parked that way  LOL  so yeah, my only choice was to have the car facing that way

Does anyone else have a problem with the pics not showing?????
 Anyway, the pictures i did were not anything major.
1. Kept the car the same color and everything but changed the background to b&w.
2. The whole pictures was desaturized and the used levels to lessen the grays and enhance the blacks and whites.

I really like the black and white one.
The second one is not bad but i would like to see the picture from a different angle more like kneeling or lying down and doing a little bit of an upshot with the trees aresurrounding the car from atop, you know what i mean.

Here are a couple pics that i did for some family members and ofcourse my avatar.

I like the color one if you didn't have the license plate on.  I think the white really catches your eye taking away from the car.  If the license plate wasn't there your eye would first catch something else on the car.  That being said i like the black and white. better.

B&W...I like the art quality of the pic. That doesn't mean I don't like the colour one as well...... :)
