Well a couple of those are edited of course. That one and the one of the yellow truck obviously.lol the other ones are just straight off the camera with my watermark added. You would never believe how I made that picture look that way.lol let's just say layering is a wonderful tool.

Cheater! Nah, just kidding. That's a pretty advanced technique that's hard to understand until you've done it. Great application of it. It fits the image so well. Did you adjust the white balance after the shot or during?

Well I shoot in RAW format so most of the editing is able to be done after or during. For that one I didn't even mess with the balance. Just layered and textured. Thanks Beck. I have some more good shots also, but I took over 1500 pictures this weekend and it takes a while to go through them all.lol those few are just some of the ones I remember taking and wanting to see first so I found them asap.

I used to not really appreciate the edited pictures as much as the straight from camera pictures, and still like them much more, but I have found that even the best photographers in the world use an editing tool for one step or another and not all of them get the best pictures just from the camera. So I have grown to accept the editing and stuff that my wife and I have learned. Still though ther is nothing better, for me that is, than getting that perfect angle and frame to not have to or need to edit.

This is the conclusion I've also come to. It's why I see the term editing being replaced by "digital darkroom" or "post production" since most of the times it's no longer editing an image, but taking it to the next level.

I still admire the straight from glass perfect images most, but I too now have a real appreciation for the art of the post process.

Thanks man. Of course we are still learning all there is to know about all this stuff, my wife is learning the whole editing and portrait photography thing, but I am trying to focus all my knowledge right now on the Automotive side of it. www.Notstockphotography.com This is where I want to be one day. John Jackson is one of the people I have been following for the past year or so. His work with props and lighting on some of the night shots are just down right gorgeous! Also www.johnnyophoto.com John O'Neil is one of the baddest automotive photographers in the nation in my opinion. Between Johnny and John Jackson I dont think there is anything they have that I don't absolutely love.

Wow. Fantastic work by both. I can dismantle parts of their work, but there's so much I don't recognize since it's in post. I want to be able to dismantle and re-create anything I see. I'm pretty good at getting the framing and dof nailed, but the exposure and lighting are always the challenge.

Yeah they also both travel all around the world taking pictures of cars and such. So they have a chance to work in some of the best environments for photos around. The deserts and plains of Arizona and Texas are so b@d@$$ for picture taking.

We have some pretty good sunsets here, but not the expanse that the flat plains out west provide. Here's a shot from a series of photos from a Route 66 trip I have yet to post that illustrates this:
