This is an ad I created using my 1998 Jeep Wrangler SE. I took the Photo with my Eos 20D, 28-135mm IS USM lens. Then the image was edited in Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0. The Jeep has a custom interior, upgraded wheels to the sport model rims, custom added Mopar Fog Lights normally not avaible on SE package and aftermarket tented windows. So it isn't fully stock.

Please let me know what you think? What do you like? What don't you like? Suggestions for improvement?

JEEP WANGLER! Awesome! Is this a vehicle for the insecure male? :-)

The photo is nice though, it looks like it'd be in an ad. And I hope you don't take that image down because of the misspelling, 'cause I'll just repost it.

Hi,

I like the second one looks like the headlights are affecting the lettering - cool twist.

One question: you mentioned that it has been PP'd what did you do? After your other post where you said you didn't like to PP just wondered what your thoughts are now...? Because it is a good shot - as others have said it does look like something you would see in a magazine ad or something.

Well I did do some editing on this in photoshop by wa of the text. However other than the text, a crop, and an unsharp mask that was it. It wasn't that drastic. I didn't do anything to change the creditablity of the photo, it is the same as the camera. I didn't even adjust the levels (Brightness/contrast)

As far as the text lighting effect. I did a light rendering after simplifying the text layer. I did the 3 spot down. Deleted a light, then aligned them with the fog and head lights, make the spread wider, and increased intensity.
