Default Honda's New CR-Z in Times Square

They have a major thing going on in Times Square today promoting Honda's new CR-Z. I was planning to go back at lunch but on account of it's one of my coworker's last day tomorrow, we took him out to lunch instead. At least I got some snaps on the way in early this morning.

Did my treatment work? I did "psychedelic" Topaz preset then denoised. For #2 I followed steps I found online on creating gradient blur using PSE7. I thought I had to do that because it was hard to make out the car from the noisy background.

There is just to much reflecting in the first and shot, it kinda detract form the subject. I do like the color much better.

Thank you, all.

Now that I look at it, yes, I see a lot of reflection. Almost like invisible in camouflage.

#5) This one has camera-shake. I used slow speed to eliminate the guys fixing up the cars.


There were a lot of guys meticulously polishing and fixing up the the cars. One would get in the driver seat, get out, close the door, look, then get in again and did this over and over again. Another one popped off the "H" in the center of all four hubcaps and repositioned them so they're upright. They're all working religiously you can tell they're passionate about cars. They're working frantically, too, like against the clock probably because they had to do as much as they can before the show started at 10am.

Amazing as ever, 1and 2 are my faves, like the poster in 1 with the guys looking in.
2 looks like a toy. Brillo.
