The lens flare wasn't too bad as a good part of the image is white or black. Just lasso the flare and decrease saturation a bit. It would have been a lot more difficult if the car had been blue or red. For the flare in the kidney grille, I just selected the grille on the viewer's right and made it a layer, then used transform to flip it horizontally. Then I used the move tool to slide into place over the other grill. To remove the guy on the left, I just erased the part of him that had a white background. Then I used the selection tool to select the center vehicle, the shadow, and everything to the right and made them into their own layer. Then I just moved that layer left a bit to cover up the lower part of the guy on the left. The sky was a simple gradient overlay.

Yeah, PS is a bitch if you don't have someone actually show you what they did to edit an image. I've learned by watching tutorials and then playing around with things I learned. It takes practice, but less than you'd think.

BTW, the image itself is sweet. Nice shot. I love the angle. I'd also like to know more about the spoiler lip on that 3 series. Very nice looking.

^ I like how you fixed the white balance of the photo, but it's tough to see the lines of your nice ride since it looks very black. Up the shadow maybe?

Here's one I just got done editing...

It came out ok, but not as good as I would've liked. I didn't want to spend more than 10 minutes on it (or find my macro lens) right now.

In photoshop use the brush tool, set mode to linear light, adjust size of brush and color accordingly. I usually start with a blue base and then white on top.

man frankie, i think those clouds are a little too intense! Almost look like smoke clouds towards the right portion of the frame.

Although I do like the rest of the editing you did, I think you went a bit overboard with the sky Frankie
