Really? The winner will be decided by how many "likes" it receives?

I hope to see a calendar, based on pics taken by popular people.

Not all by likes, its the composition of the photo. Elegance, beauty, and mechanics, they will be taking thus all in consideration. So if u have a pic of the car or just model, it won't qualify I believe. But yah, Matts is pretty damn good! Props to the Photoshop really cleanly done.

I think what slowguy was referring to was that regardless of who's composition and overall product is better, popularity is more important given a contest with this structure

That's the game plan. You can then put the car up on a mountain racing down with the girl behind the wheel

man, some of the shots are outstanding.

some of the entries just totally misunderstand the concept. grab a good photo that you took, tweak it to make it look outstanding but still look like a photo you can possibly take. some of the photochopping is just out of hand.

I think the general public has to overcome the misconception that photoshop is 'cheating' for photography. It's a part of the workflow for digital photography. It's like saying tuning a race car is 'cheating' before a race. Would you ever see cars in a race running straight from the factory? Not a chance, it'll be gutted, race suspension, aero kits, even different engine. But it's your contest, so your rules. My suggestion is if you didn't want the images to be as photoshopped, you should of stated that in the official rules prior to the event and not punish people's entries after the shoot and give 'out of hand photoshopped' images an equal chance at winning.

That being said, GOOD photoshopping should not be noticed and goes hand in hand with GOOD photography no matter how extreme. I am sure if a photographer is capable of doing good extreme photoshopping, he/she is equally capable of taking an amazing raw image. Like Matt

I think when we work as a photographer in today's world, Photoshop and post processing are essential skills to become a good photographer. We are speaking especially for pro commercial photographers. I'm not trying to convince anyone here but think about food without spicing, girls without makeup. There's still a boundary where the organics are better, but post processing is already considered playing in a different sand box. Just a thought.

Lol Jackson I didn't even know you until you started posting my photos on here and when my friend showed me this link. But great skills you have. I have a few buddies of mine showing your work to me before!

QFT. I was going to post something along the same lines to SG's wallpost on the BJ Autohaus facebook group but Jackson sums it up nicely here

not my contest, not my rules. =)

photoshopping should not be seen, otherwise, its not a photo anymore, its just another billboard ad. photoshop should be used as a tool to enhance the photo.

again, not my contest, not my rules.

i guess i should be more blunt about it. 4 models holding up a car is not photography to me. shading, bluring, effects to draw attention to the main subject while not altering the original idea of the photo is fine and is normal practice.

With my line of work now, photo enhancing is build into my workflow. Photoshopping is my last worry now, it's all about getting the best shot out of the box and adjusting a few things afterwords.
