Andy,

Something's gone awry with the lighting. On my monitor it's too dark and I had to look at it in ps to be able to see the texture you put down for the cement and the drop shadow for the car.

It might just be my monitor but I doubt it.

The texture on the cement is ok, but it has that photoshop filter look to it, without enough randomness. Photoshop filters have that controlled randomness that's easy to identify. It's fine though, and few will notice that anyway.

The lighting is a bit of a problem I think. You might want to double check that.

i was a little worried if it might be too dark for some others to see cause my screen is calibrated.


i have no idea about the shadow thing.. it's one thing to shoot it. another to edit it.

Hi tetsuo,

Is this in the right direction?

I haven't added any texture to the floor but that can be very easily done ...
