I think this is a Fiat (maybe someone can tell me). Anyway, this was from a car show in downtown Pittsburgh. It was taken during midday, so it was hot. Hopefully that comes across in the image, otherwise I haven't done my job very well.

Shot in RAW. In PSP X2, crop, channel mixer (RGB: 100/50/-50), curves, color balance to add color back (with some blue in the highlights) and HSL to boost saturation. Merge, noise reduction, clarify (10), Sharpen (50/70/0), resize, noise redutcion, USM (1/50/5), JPG.

There were some annoying distractions I wish I could have cloned out -- the smudge under the headlight, the overhead wire visible against the bulding, etc. -- but so goes Basic Editing.

VERY cool shot. The car has essentially become part of the building, which creates a lot of interesting questions... I like the twinkles on the headlamp reflecting the solar flare, and I really think the processing suits this very well!
