Default Can you dig it?

Saw this car this morning at a Home Depot parking lot. Here, I masked it from the background, then took out the color and clouds from the background, leaving the palm trees. I then painted over the asphalt in the foreground and created a shadow under the car. Comments welcome.

Another shot of the car head on. Again, I masked it from the background and then created a "showroom" box using several layers in Photoshop.

BTW, does anyone know if this is a Lincoln or a Mercury? In 1951, their body styles were very similar. This has been chopped, lowered and otherwise modified that it's hard to tell.

Nice photography, nice close cropping and nice background. One thing though. In Photoshop there is a feature called defringing. It gets rid of the white pixels around the edge of the close cropping or the black, whichever it is you need to get rid of. On a white background you get rid of the black on the black you get rid of the white. Its noticeable in #1 on the underside of the body and around the tires against the drop shadow.

i think these look great. i always enjoy your digiart car shots.

i really like the 1st one. it has a great feel to it. the combination of the light purple on the contrasting black and white gives it a very cool sketchbook type feel.

#2 is just excellent too, the showroom look you have been doing lately is really classy.

I would soon need a new dictionary with 'superlatives only' - to be able to come up with new and apropriate comments and to express what I see in your Digi-Art, Walter.

Just phenomenal - every one of them!
