Default How do they do it?

I often see some professional pictures, everything seems so smooth, almost like it was rendered in a 3d-program.... how do they accomplish this? Do they use some filter?

You could easily take a shot like this - with the right equipment.
Often the photographer uses flashes everywhere to lighten up the scene.
This looks like a typical nightshot!

Ok . Have to try it some time, is a SB 80DX enough?

Do you think anything special has been done in photoshop? except the usual, unsharp mask, levels etc?

it's hard to say - it's not the original photo. Maybe some program (i.e neatimage) to reduce noise - since it is shot with long shutter.

You can't do a shot like that with a speedlight. I think it's a pretty clean and simple long shutter shot. The thing i said with the multiple flashes, softboxes a.s.owas genrally meant in commercial shooting.
Shots like this is pretty simple.
Tip! (maybe you know it) . The best time a day to shot "nightshots" is not in the dark. It's just when the dark begins to increase and best with a open sky - no clouds. Use a long shuttertime for most objects.

regards
Klaus

Thanks again! Always nice to get info from you (and others) .

I'll try to get some similar shots on a black BMW M-Roadster, but with straightened up surroundings of course
