My HID headlights on my new Mitsubishi Lancer.

I originally editted this as if it were Advanced. I dodged the reflected clouds in the upper right to make the tree stand out more, and I spot sharpened the bulb on the bottom left. But $#%!... Basic! Redo!

Smart Sharpen @ 57% and 29.4px radius
Neat Image
Hue/Saturation - turned saturation down, because some very tiny reflections had a bit of orange in them
Brightness/Contrast - bumped both a tiny bit
Selective color - Made blacks blacker
Save for web

I want to dodge my clouds! Gah!

It took a while to figure out what that was but I love the high contrast. Almost like a high contrast abstract.

Very cool. I was wondering if someone will find a good take on closeup of a car headlamp. They do have a really cool geometry going on and work swell in b/w. (no vote)

I don't know how to say this intelligently hehe but I like the different levels of shinyness! Great shot.
