The steam is real, the smoke is not. Just reference photography I shot and spent a good amount of time blending correctly. :)

So basically, you clicked the raw photograph and the Top Gear personal added the smoke effects and all. I didn't know they did that.

Still, fact remains that you have done amazing automotive photography. Especially your SRT Viper clicks are pretty much everywhere. Big fan of your work.

Nope. I shoot and retouch all my work, for Top Gear and Chrysler Group. Whether the vision is mine or an art director's, the execution is 100% mine in all cases.

Oh okay. I misinterpreted a comment above then. My bad. :D
Doesn't change the fact that you know the beauty of cars.

Oh yes. I believe this one has something like 600hp.

:) Wow. I just asked because sometimes modified cars look very powerful but the engine itself wasn't even changed.

It was time to have some sort of reboot of the Superbird. I'd totally get one. Great shots!

How much is this conversion kit, if I may ask?

notbland Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2012  Professional Photographer
For just the body, about $17,000. It goes up from there with the interior, performance upgrades, etc.
