These pics were taken using sunlight. It's a pretty cloudy day so the colours of the background is pretty subdued. When I get a chance, I'll re-shoot the car with halogen lighting.

I actually didn't have to photoshop them too much. I just adjusted the following:

Hue
Saturation
Unsharp
Contrast

I didn't even have that must dust to clean off as I usually have to do with the reflective black background. :woohoo

Thanks Winston. I'm not terribly content with these pics as I didn't have control over my lighting. I would have preferred the silver on the top of the car to look a little closer to how it looks in real life. It's got a funny shade of blue it seems. Maybe I had mucked with the "Hue" tool too much in Photoshop. :badidea

Thanks for the kind words Darrick.

As for the colour of the background?? Ummm..."orange"???? :giggle Seriously though, I don't recall seeing the specific colour name for it. In light of that, I'd describe it as a fairly bright and vibrant orange. The idea I had was that it would contrast strongly against the colour of the car. It's got a flat finish which means not much light gets reflected.

When I photoshop the image, I adjust the "Saturation" and "Hue" until I like what I see. :cheers
