Gentlemen, start your engines! - Be Creative

My nephew is the sports editor for a local paper and takes some fantastic shots of the Sebring 12 Hour auto race. How he captures such clean shots of these fast moving cars is beyond me but I admire his talent. Photo credit to Scott Dressel.

Since the race is coming up in a couple weeks, I thought one of his photos would be a fun "play toy" for folks in the RTP forum. The race starts at 10:00 AM and ends at 10:00 PM and Scott caught this great sunset shot.

Be creative! Enjoy

PS.. My thanks to Peter and Janet for their help with the AHB which I used to do my "playing" with. :-)

With that car you could catch up with anyone.

One from me as well. Trying to do with less detail, let your brains fill in the gaps.

Excellent, Peter. A perfect example of when "less is more".

I'm going to have to fish around for some more AHB brushes. What brushes do you use most often?

Well like yourself I haven't been doing this long and am still searching for new brushes and presets (when I get away from PS and here).
I have been using Trimoons brushsets, and now some that Patricia Kay has been kind enough to send me (if you pm her with you email ad she will send them to you),
have also used some from the Creative Pro site, which are interesting.
You can use almost any brush in PS with varying degrees of success. Just play with the settings in th brush presets for different effects.
You could even make your own brushes up, if you do and they are any good please share.(hint hint from a lazy so and so)
Boy is this getting complicated.

Peter

Swampy, Palms, Peter - nice work. And hats off to Scott for the photo. I shot a (much slower) sports car race once, long ago, and I know hard that is.

I motion-blurred the background in PS, then painted it in Twisted Brush.

I can't believe how many versions I did before I settled on one I really don't like all that much.

DKC-- I really like it. The motion blur is perfect, not too much, just right.

Used Amphisoft's Shaman filter set to Grain Extract and the Divided the grey out to get the majority of the line art effect. Still pretty much a GIMP variation to Swampy's line-art technique.
