Nice shot Walter..

Your masking is very smooth, are you doing it by hand, or are you using a plug in?

Great job, as always..

PhotoPaint 12 has 5 different masking tools depending on the complexity of the background. I typically use a trace type masking tool which is tedious, but gives me the best results.

That is a real nice shot and rework!

I'd like to try that on some of my Corvette pix you see here:

I entered a pix in the " Critiques and Techniques " called: " Corvette overlooking Seattle"

What do you think of that one?

nice job, Walt! i love those cars... one of my fraternity brothers in college had a '71, and it was absolutely one of the best cars i've driven. it was a beautiful French Racing Blue color,with the 351C engine, and he had it set up for high-speed touring. the car was as stable and predictable at 130 mph as it was at 55, and handled like a dream. i never did understand why he sold it just because it got 48,000 miles on it... :?
after he sold it he got a '73 Trans Am which wasn't nearly as well balanced, though with the 455 it was a tad faster... but then, he never was one to car much for the intrinsic value of a car. when i first met him, he was driving a '67 Chevelle SS396 convertible, one of only about 500 made; he sold that too, at about 50,000 miles, because he was afraid it would start costing him repair money... what would that little puppy be worth these days? lotta bucks...

That's a sweet 'Vette. If you DO try something like mine why not share it here?

Yes, he could have retired on the profits had he kept those cars. It's amazing what you have to pay for them today. Wish I'd been able to keep my 67 Mustang fastback.

yeah, but i don't think he thought about that much. he was a rich kid from North Hollywood, worth $80k in his own right at the age of 18, and that was in 1970... in the circles he ran in, it was nothing to write a check for the full purchase price of a DeTomaso Pantera... he's probable already retired anyway!
