I had the pleasure of working on a Saturday:icon_frown:, but I knew the office park I work in would be abandoned, so I brought my camera and made lemonade out of lemons. I hope you like!

Very nice! :cool:

The wheels look perfect & should fit in nicely with your red/black scheme. I like your idea of blacking the bright roof rails. In addition, what about a black lip? :wink:

Thanks Bobby! Heh, now that the warm is upon us I should dust off the lip and put it back on. :biggrin:

I can't decide if I like #1 or #4 best. The red and black color scheme is great.:rock:

Yarr! You is taking up two spots!
lol, I think I was taking up 3 spots in the last one. :biggrin:

I like pic one, looks like the car is going to leap forward at any moment. :biggrin:
Thanks! I think that one turned out the best.

Thanks, I like those, too! There are lots of underground garages in the office park, too, so I might go back sometime soon with my tripod. :icon_biggrin:

That is absolutely my favorite color of foz. Your car is then a perfect example of a tastefully modded version. Looks beautiful.

I can't wait to see your Foz in person at WCSS.

Darn it you guys with all your sport black tails....:icon_cry: I spent all my "mod money" on exhaust stuff and sway bars and "The Boss" says no more money till next year.

Car looks awesome by the way! I love that color:icon_biggrin:

Hey Vince, I'm using a Panasonic FZ8, which is an SLR-like camera. I had to turn down the resolution yesterday because I forgot my memory card at home, so I only had in-camera storage to work with. :chair:----> Me

I'll post-up before/after pics, so you can see what post-processing was performed.

I'm planning on using vinyl on the roof rails.

Here's a comparison of before/after shots. I used Photoshop to do the post-processing. I'm still trying to get better, too, so any additional suggestions are welcome. :)





Photo #1: Cropped. Rotated. Removed light on brick wall. Removed box to the left of the car. Used "levels" to improve lighting. Used "saturation" to intensify colors; decreased yelllow, cyan, blue, & green saturation.

_________________________________________________________





Photo #2: Cropped. Rotated. Increased red saturation, decreased everything else. Adjusted levels to make the car "pop".

_________________________________________________________





Photo #3: Removed light pole in the middle of the parking lot. Removed short light pole in the foreground. Increased saturation - probably a little too much. Adjusted levels to intensify the lighting, but I lost some detail on the back of the car.
_________________________________________________________





Photo #4: Cropped. Rotated. Increased red saturation and decreased yellow, green, cyan, and blue. Adjusted levels for better lighting.

_________________________________________________________





Photo #5: Cropped. Increased saturation. Increased contrast. Decreased brightness.
