The only real issue with the shot is the green bush that is blocking the Jeep, that can't be chopped off.

I think he is wondering how it is a pan shot. The wheels are not blurred, that means it can't be a pan shot.

I do have a shot of the jeep without the green stuff in front, but the picture looked better with the bush in front.

One of my best shot from Deccan Quatermile drag held at Shamshabad, Hyderabad on 18th January 2009


And a overblown HDR

Excellent HDR! Loved it! I wish you could have composed it better though.

Kpzen, the second shot of the Getz is nice, but you could play around with the contrast a bit.

Well the fact is that I/we expect some good stuff outta regular photographers here. When something's are amiss , I/we tend to point out take it positively .

Also I think its time you start posting some original shots with less PP.

No one took anything negetively Riju.

Photoshop is just my digital darkroom, and most of the techniques that you can apply in it have real film counterparts, they're just a lot easier to apply.

Oh, and just for the record, there are hardly any photographers in history that haven't used some sort of trickery disguised as best practice. Check out Jeff Curto's "History of Photography Podcasts" for the details. You should check these out anyway, the history of photography is rife with great stories and techniques.

Ibarionex R. Perello's podcast "The Candid Frame" has interviews with current pro photographers, and all of them use multiple 'cheats' to get their final images.

And please define "Original shots".
Regards,
TG.

Riju,
To the photographer the camera is his tool. Digital or Film.

To the artist the camera becomes the color pallette and Photoshop the brushes. If any work is done other than the standard Curves, Color Saturation, and Sharpening, then it becomes the artists interpretation or expression. It makes no sense to call a photo with less PP as the "original".

I am an artist and to me original is my final output as i have perceived an image either though my camera or though my eyes, sometimes i use camera to render the original, sometimes i use paper and pencil. So I am afraid these are my 100 percent originals.
Regards,
TG.

TG. I agree with you. These are your originals.

But perhaps riju meant "pics straight out of the camera". I would also love to see them.
