^^ Easy to say when you are looking at the picture at home on the computer but when you are out shooting you don't always have everything you need or realize everything you could have done better for the shot. This is when you resort to post processing to enhance and "fix" the shot. Plus you don't always carry all your gear with you too.

Amazing work John. Every time i look at your pics you give me new ideas or teach me something new

Alan

nice, thats pretty awesome. the only section that looks off to me is the rear wheel. that rim is so well lit and bright but the back of the car is so dark.
