This is a badass car that was sitting in the parking lot. The car belongs to the Dean of Honors college. as you can see the parking sign in front of it on the first picture.

Cant say that I agree with you, just a difference in personal taste. However, they were giving one away for a hole in one at the golf course where I worked over the summer. Noone won, but I did get to drive it out to the hole and a little after the tournament was over, it was VERY fun to drive.

Nice exposures Kev.

I'd have gone for a bit more space below the front wheel in that 2nd shot myself.

Apart from that, good shots.

Good night shots, can't really see the sign too well in shot 1 tho.

That's the first time I've seen anybody refer to a Hyundai as "badass"...

You've got some nice shots of the car there. But it isn't really 'white' here. Try fiddling with the whitebalance or try to remove the colorcast to improve it.

I've got a nice PS trick that might just work here:
1. Create another layer with a copy of the entire photo. The easiest way to do that is to drag the 'background' layer towards the "new layer" button underneat.

2. Select 'Filter' and than 'Blur' and 'Average'. This will fill the entire photo with a single color. Don't worry, we'll get the image back eventually. ;) In a photo without a colorcast, it will look grey. If the picture has a color cast, the frame will now show that color.

3. Pressing Ctrl and I will invert the color. If it doesn't, select 'Image' and then 'Invert image'. You'll get the negative of the colorcast..

4. Go to the little square at the layer interface where it says "normal". This is how the layer behaves. It's now laying on top of your picture, completely obscuring it. Click it, and select the "Soft light" option. The inverted color cast layer will now act as a color filter, removing exactly the colorcast.

This should turn the car into the right color. ;)

They are badass. My dad has the new coupe version and its awesome. The color of the car wasn't white it was that metallic white color. It kind of looks off white a little bit.

I must admit, the genesis isn't sold here. I know the color, but it looks a bit brown now. Probably due to the light. Like I said, I think it's something fixable. If you want, I might have a shot at it at a later time. Currently not on a machine with PS. ;)
