    Congratulations basman007, on the first automotive win of 2008. As with the general competitions, I'll be doing a 'Best of 2007 Automotive' vote as well. It'll take a while to compile and create the votes, but I should get it started this week. Let's see if we can top three entries in the meantime.

    There is quite a bit done to it, but nothing "ridiculous". And even if there was a ton done to it, I don't see that as a bad thing (as long as it still looks good).

    EDIT: By "touchups" I mean removing an ugly yellow reflection off the driver's side of the car and removing a magazine from the dash (the guy who owns it owns the magazine company). By "overlays" I mean some black gradient layers set to "overlay" to increase contrast in specific areas and such.

    IMHO, this is about making an image the way you find it the most beautifull. Editting a picture often makes it a nicer image. You can play just much with an image afterwards as you can when you took it imo.
    This is not about retaining the most data or documenting.

    You must hate practically all the press release photos for new cars, as essentially all of them undergo the same type of editing as pat's shot.

    Take for example the attached shot. The "digital darkroom" is a part of modern photography, and that's why I like allowing it in competitions.

    I agree with everything you said, however, that shot has gone through a hell of a lot more than mine.
