Celebrating my 7th month of photography and my first little camera (point and shoot) today with a recomposition of my first HDR two months ago. 64' Pontiac Tempest covered in 30 years dust.. oxidation and begging for restoration. Love this little shed with the missing tin roof section the sun excapes through the the never finished wall stain. Growing up rural my kind of place. Ya'll have a good day..!!

Good job on this one. I think just a bit more pop with an overlay and turn down the opacity might just give it a deeper finish.

Haven't grasped the layers yet in PS Doc.. so adjusting on the fly with what I do know about PS so far. I do need to grasp the layers to refine so.. digging on that now.

I give you a 9 on the Image and Processing. But another 10 John on the Perspective and the fact that it's everything you described and more.

Cost me over a year to improve with the advice of friends the Creme, if you improved what is seen in 60 days, I do not know what will be within a year.
