Very nice indeed. Both the processing and the before/after trick.

1.CR2
2.After

The after looks good. The tilt-shift does not.

Here's my thing with tilt-shift... it looks good when there are multiple objects in the foreground, and definitely in the background. It doesn't work well when you've zoomed into the car, where the car takes up 75% of your composition.

Do a tilt-shift on a busy intersection from a higher-up view and you're golden... but then again, what do I know?

agreed, tilt-shift isn't suited for this.

I like the second picture, maybe drop the saturation a tiny but, but that's personal preference.

It looks nice and clean and the new rims look good on that beast.

Tilt/shifts always look better when the shot is from above. Gives it more of a diorama feel to be looking down on the subject.

How the hell you do you survive driving in Chicago with so little room for wheel travel?

meh... your sidemarker is distracting. I'm just not sure what you are trying to do with the photo?

how about this one? Went for a kinda blown out desert feel with a sepia layer.




Too much contrast or can I get away with it?

Clone out that blob behind the steering wheel. It's distracting.
