    Looks good.

    But how about putting some colour onto the car so it looks like it is there.

    It looks just a little flat.

    But hay I ofer this as constructive criticism, I love the shot.

    Thanks James. Yes, you're right but it's a level up in expertise from me to attempt that sort of manipulation. If you know how it's done, I'm all ears (well, eyes on here I suppose.)

    If you use the funny shaped lining tool to go around the car and then use an orange filer, say 85% ish this will give the car the tint you want.

    Then go to the balance colour and turn up Recover blacks.

    I think this will work a treat

    If not then put a filer over the whole photo so the car looks good and use the history tool to get all but the car back to this photo.

    Thanks again James. The picture is constructed in layers of course and one of these is the car alone so I'll give it a go. Watch this space . . .

    Ta-dah!! Thanks for the tip James! Yes, it does look better. (Used an '85' warm-up filter over the car and the reflection.)

    That is such a cool photo, maybe Jag would buy it from you as a promo picture?

    Thank you Bill; very flattering. The technicality of producing a picture like that is quite simple. As with anything vaguely artistic, it's having an imagination that makes the difference. And 'unfortunately', I'm an engineer / artist wannabe. 😥
