GW - Did not even notice that!

Harriet - Blue car looks so much better with the "fixed" shadow!!

I agree, the fixed shadow is a huge improvement. I like all the others, especially the "flame" paint job. I didn't notice the "expanded version" of you until I read GW's post.

I like what you did with the Shelby, it gave it the prominance it deserved in the scene. As a car fanatic I like the way you are concentrating on details in most of the images, or, as with the Shelby, you are giving a different perspective to the image.

Thanks, Ira. What I find interesting is that some people are so good at taking great pictures of whole cars and I can't get the hang of it at all. It's like processing programs - I never got what I wanted out of Noise Ninja, but others could work wonders with it. I use Topaz Lab's Detail extensively, really like it. However, I just couldn't figure out Adjust, another of their programs that many use very effectively. I find shooting detail shots pretty easy - I'm still learning what to look for when it comes to cars and take lots of boring/ones that don't work, but I have a better success rate with them than I did with the whole car shots.
