on second glance... it looks kind of heavy
Thanks, this one is pretty true to life, even toned down a bit. It's under a parking garage near the exit, the lights are pink/orange and the sky was bright blue outside. I didn't use a CP for this shot, and there are only 3 exposures .Nice, your tones are getting back into the believable realm (still seeing some halos around the car though).
Nice softness on the paint too. Did you use a CP? With one exposure for the whole thing?
