    Would love some suggestions on what I could do with this rather drab sky. There was some light cloud cover in a portion of the sky at the time of the shot, making a portion of it a drab ol grey color.
    original.
     
  2. I'd just remove the sky and make a substitute....:smile:

    Ray Guselli is about the best at this I've seen....if he doesn't drop by in awhile I'll take a crack at it.....:wink:

    curves

    Steve,
    You nailed the camera angle! I love the curves on this car as well as the curves this car is capable of...
     
  4. And where's Ray? He can work magic on the pretty car.
     
  5. Nice ride! Is it yours?

    Quick try

    Apologies as I didnt know the name or type of car as not common over here in UK

    Could add a name if you like the idea....which by the way is a quick one as I am rushing out

    Mike, thank you for such kind words - however, anything I do is only through the help and encouragement received in these great forums....

    Hope I dont let you down with this quick take


    Best wishes

    Ray

    I would say try a layer mask over the sky give it some saturation and some contrast and see how it looks. I would also say shoot alittle longer next time.

    Wow, I don't know what to say!

    Ray, you did a bloody fantastic job on this shot! It's wild, but it's also very cool! Thank you for all your work. Yes, this is a 2005 C6 Corvette Coupe, and it is my own car. It's got a Lingenfelter 427 cubic inch engine in it, making approx 600 hp. I think I would like to try to reproduce RFC (Robert's) rendition for a print. I know I could never come close to Ray's effort! PM sent to you Robert!
