I've been thinking very hard about getting some AB's and Vagabond's lately. My wife wants them for weddings, but I'm sure I could find some other uses for them...

sorry, talking about xluben's photo.
Yeah, it looks really flat, but I think with a little more work I can get it how I want. I think I need to try and keep some highlights for detail, but kill all the obnoxious window reflections.

I've done it before with multiple flash exposures to get the whole car lit. It's basically the opposite for this. For these I just did a basic "Darken" blend mode and then a few tweaks to individual layers that I wanted to change.
