    It is still a bit blurred.but you seem o be improving on that The paint job is pretty well executed,its almost as if it came from another donor picture. The decal on the surfboard is slightly off,but i wont do much better probably. From that board backwards it starts to look unrealistic though. All the little stuff added(surfboards,2nd car,beer boxes etcetera) dont do much good to the picture. The car and boxes are very unrealistic.

    A solution to the upscaling problems you seem to have,might be to use only super-resolution pictures. I tend to take pictures of 3000x2000 pixels and upwards. You get to pay much much more attention to detail and resizing is not a problem.

    dude, this is a really amazing chop! i'm extremely impressed, great job, and i have no problem with the excess stuff like the boxes and surfboard, i think it actually adds to the atmosphere of the scene, and besides, they're not the point of the picture, the car is, and it's masterfully done. bravo.

    I think this is the best one you have done it looks awesome although that many cases of budweiser they probably won't be competent enough to drive it. Good work.

    Looks good dude. It seems that when you spend some decent time on something you do very well.

    I dig it!

    I wish you would give up with the "follies" though. Like the chicks you have in your chops - and in this case, the beer boxes. It makes your chops seem downmarket

    For the most part, this chop looks quite realistic.

    The background is chopped. Also that rear wagon part is copied from the original, but nothing else. They are just two different photos with different angles.

    No they are two different CARS the car in the BG is a FORD Woody the foreground was the Plymouth come Dodge with the angle on front center...a match made in heaven, well they are the same body style and the same POV....and 3 different backgrounds in total, well considering that I had to make up the 3rd one from scratch...thats the one that blends them together and includes the way beach, the front grasses ...the 2nd car was from an entirely different setting as was the red half of the front car...bout 30 layers in total to do this one.

    But you haven't. Youve just taken the wagon part from original, brushed it a bit and pasted to red car.
