    There is a visible colored fringe on the plate (view at 100%, easily corrected with Camera Raw)
    The low front spoiler of the car should be cleaned (especially visible in the first picture) and I'm not sure that all these power lines do not disturb the reading of the image

      I can see where you're losing paint details in at least one of them. It's starting to show banding, even at low resolution. Overall though I have to ask what your goal was here. I don't see a lot of intent. To me they look like snapshots, which is fine. I don't see anything that really tells me about the design of the car or why it's in that environment.

          There's nothing striking to me. For example nothing was done to emphasize details of the car, if that was your goal. The encroaching brush takes away from that a little, but the only thing I might actually call a mistake is where you ended up with banding and color shifts in the paint. You can see where it has the weird tints in a couple on exceptionally saturated parts.

          Usually asking how good or bad something is implies that there was a more specific goal.

            would sure appreciate some thoughts on how to make the old car look like it belongs there. not sure about color, and i think it needs the ps equiv of cutting the steering wheel to the left, and nudge the backend in some. what do you think? something looks wrong, don't know just what.

            Hi all,

            Always wondered what my car would look like with the late model Kouki Type X rear lights.
            I've just been offered a straight swap and its very tempting, so can anyone please edit my car with the late model lights.
            Can you please do 2 edits, one leaving the RPS13 center...

            The theory and flow in Image Manipulation?
            by beefhitler
            How exactly is a typical image manipulation done start to finish IN THE BEGINNING if we are not shooting anything ourselves but dealing with stock images?

            Let's say I have a concept in mind. I have a sketch in mind. And now I need to put these things together.

            Example, I want...
