Re: Tighter Crop

I believe a tighter crop of the image you already have was mentioned by one of the posters above. Perhaps something like below. Note that you can take the opportunity to 'touch up the paint' for the owner as well as it is much cheaper to do in the image than on the car. In the tighter crop the bland sky is less of an issue as it makes up a smaller amount of the image. I would have cropped tighter yet on the left but cutting off the farm machinery is not a great idea, although total removal might make it work. Replacing skies is not easy and lighting issues aside you did well!


That does have a bit more impact than mine. However, I'm a bit unsure about removing the front corner of the shadow. Is that me being too anal?

I tried to clone out the imperfections in the front of the car but it didn't look believable. What technique did you use?

Thanks for your effort.
