k@ from Paris, France

Oh excellent big one ! That red ! Would love to see it more natural too, impressive angle & love how this car fiils in your frame utterly !

15 Aug 2011 7:21am

@k@: This is its natural colour Karine. the top layer had its blend mode set to "colour" above the layer with the Lucis Art treatment, so any deviation in colour was set back to the original. Well, it was a "hot rod" show, you know how they like their crazy hot colours :-)

Nitin from Shanghai, China

"The elegant beast had indeed been tamed. All of the townsfolk rushed to the town square to catch a glimpse of the majestic beast. He was to be the pride of the town. Years of yearning and the big day was here. There were celebrations all around, people drinking and chattering, kids playing and screaming, housewives smiling and blushing, and young men whistling and hooting at the pretty girls who were out in their best dresses." Wow I just made all this up - but such a fantastic picture Curly! Amazing stuff.
