Great job, Pedro. Very nice.

Nice job Pedro. I'd fix the following though:

Blurred horizon line -both sides - infinity is crisp so this looks false
Cloned clouds on the right
Too dark shadows in wheel hubs (add a masked 'Curves' adjustment layer and tweak it with a low opacity - airbrushing small areas at a time until the contrast is reduced)

I love photoshop. not for all the wild and whacky stuff (tho that can be fun too), but for what I'm going to post below.
I was shooting some promo shots for a friend's racing team (stuff they'll use to try to entice new sponsors) The conditions were awful, and they actually had a minor crash (notice nose and driver door damage) before the shoot. It was the last race of the season, so no time to fix the damage in real life - PS7 to the rescue.

Tell me what you think - suggestions welcome.

Here is the unedited .RAW original (no WB or exposure adjustments, just .jpg convert and scale)


And here is the almost finished product (WB, exposure, contrast/bright, sharpen, cloned out nose/hood/door damage, cloned bugs off nose, removed background fence,powerlines, trailer and oil can, removed gravel from tires and re-furbished the goodyear logo, 're-painted' some of the sponsor logos, re-aligned the door, and I'm sure another million things or so.


The image still needs some cropping etc, but that's usually the last thing i do.
