I'll be the first then.... Smile I would have cloned out the markers and cropped a bit closer on the car. but a good sharp subject though, with good timing. Smile

Many Thanks Big Rick and Torres99, especially the mod.

I have cropped closer to the car and it looks even better. It will be included on my website.

Thanks again

Gavin

Really nice shot Gavin. I tend to agree re removing the markers, but Im also thinking theyre part of the scene so should stay, though the shot does look better, if less an accurate record shot, without them.

A couple of other suggestions as in my mod:

Crop from the left and add some more height to position the car on a third; sharpen; add contrast; reduce the glare on the windows, and lift the shadow on the driver a little using the shadow highlight tool in CS4.

Hope this helps.


Regards


Willie

Much prefer the first mod.... the dust behind the car conveys the sense of speed more than the second.
