Both lightroom 3 and aperture 3 contain an equally effective clone and heal brush tool, they work great and are very easy to use!

Pedro, find "spot healing brush tool" on the left hand side, select it, then on the top make sure to check off "content-aware".

Edit: So how would I get that dark effect without it looking over processed? The original photo wasn't dark like that I used photoshop to get the dark eerie feel.
Yeah, still not my first choice for a location. If you're trying to get a dark effect without looking over processed, then you gotta start with a dark photo. Underexpose it a bit on purpose to get the results you're looking for

LOVE that location...but yeah I think the car's angle and elevation could be better. Front bumper has a big hotspot like UL mentioned too. You've on the right track, especially with that location. Like KP said, time to drag Andy out there with you!

The original picture is a much wider view, but still centered. I figured the road would create leading lines toward the car, but after reviewing the picture later I realized the road is not defined enough to take full advantage of that effect. After doing some reading here I decided to crop it a bit closer to the car, but I kept it centered because I felt cropping it to meet the rule of thirds would throw off the balance of the picture. Thoughts? I can provide the original crop if needed. Thanks again.
I would love to see the original, uncropped version. As far as the car itself, I think there's just a tiny bit too much of the side of the car, and not enough of the front for that 3/4 shot. I also probably would've gotten even lower in elevation.

Cool location. I really really do wish that these weren't in the middle of the day though. The shadows are really harsh (especially in the first shot, in front of the car) and it's easy to get a bit too contrasty with a black car in midday sun. Centered actually works considering everything else that's around the car, although I don't like how the background is intersecting with the car in the first photo.

Pretty good composition on the wheel close-ups, although I think the first shot has just a little too much ground in it. Contrast overall is a bit overwhelming, and I definitely would get this car out of the driveway and into a nicer location.

Hell yeah, this shot rocks. The only thing I don't like is how there's a little bit of a backward angle on the car in the photo.

Crazy smooth road man! I actually like where you burned the front of the second photos compared to the original I saw. It might have a bit more noise, but I think that's more than acceptable. Easy money.

First two are a bit tight of a location for my tastes. There's no freedom of how to position the car at all. I do like the last shot in the garage though...time to use that content aware fill on those parking lines and such

What do you think?
Much better without the hanging red thing. The Spot Healing Brush does wonders as well

I can't comment on Aperture 3, but Lightroom 3's clone/heal tool is decent, but nowhere as good as CS5's Content Aware Fill/Healing Brush. It would either be impossible or take me hours upon hours to do what I did in these next couple photos...

This edit took me about 10-15 minutes to do. This was one of 40 edits that was requested by the bride

Dude, you got me listening to a bit of Deadmau5 since I had no clue who or what it was. Good listening when working on photos and such.

Speaking of which, what do you think of this one? The window reflections are blown, I know, but aside from that?

Haha funny thing is, I never even listened to DeadMau5 until I shot him in concert last year...been a fan ever since. It's great photo editing music, although I do find that Industrial works a little better for me personally

I like your angle and elevation in the shot a lot, but the windows are pretty blown and I don't quite like how soft it gets as you go toward the rear of the car. This also doesn't quite look like a rig shot...it seems like I can see some odd edit marks on the ground under and behind the car.

lol, you got me. I knew it didn't look totally authentic, but it was fun experimenting with it. But as far as edit marks on the ground and behind the car, I really didn't touch anything there. It was getting those damn wheels to spin that took the most time. Can't just select, radial blur and you're done.

I never intended it to turn into this kind of shot, but once I got started, I just kept going till I was mostly pleased with the results.

definitely a great effort Jag... i seriously thought it was a panning shot (as i mentioned in our thread) at first glance.. not until Hobbs told me "um its fake, i was there, and the car was NOT moving" i went and looked at it again more closely..

the average user (even some more advanced users cough me cough) wouldnt be able to tell how fake it is. you did a good job by not over-doing it so you can tell how unreal it is.

either way, ive noticed a trait in your photos from the last few batches... going from light to dark from each side of the photo.

Thanks man! It was fun trying something different. Freakin Hobbs giving me away...what a dick. Did he tell you he was busy putting a stink bug in an ant hill while I was shooting?

But yeah, it was a good amount of work going from what I started from. And you're right, I guess I do have a bit of a light to dark thing going on haha. Not really intentional (as a consistent theme).

i thought it was artificial due to the reflections on the car not flowing with the rest of the picture. but idk, i thought it was a very good edit though
