Intercooler looks too fake, its standing out, the lighting isnt the same
you need shadows on the top part of the intercooler that way it looks likes under and behind the bumper:
see how the front of the car is dark cuz the light is from the back, so the air dam and inside of it, it would also be dark, and giving the FMIC a shadow, big one and dark, mostly from the upper right side, because the lower left side of the front is lighter/brighter, light hitting it more,
hope it helps
i like your style, chop is clean, you know the basics, and you got a eye for it, interested in participating in our photoshop contests? i will be putting it up today
Thanks for imput! Yea, I'm still working on shadowing, that look 100% better. I knew the intercooler looked bad as far as color, but I was mainly trying to get it to look real as far as angle/real-ness. I searched for hours looking and chopping many different pics I found and finally decided on that one. For themost part I think the IC turned out decent, but your shading makes it almost look real.
Thanks again, if you wanna post a link to the contest or give me some info I'll take a stab at it, but I'm nothing compared to some of the other work I've seen on here.
