yea i've got two 1 TB hard drives plus a 128gb SSD main drive. one TB drive is for media, the other is for pictures with the 128 being for windows, games and productivity software. as cheap as hard drives are these days, you pretty much don't have any excuses. i'm hoping to nab a nice 2TB to upgrade my picture storage drive since i've had it for a while, i'd hate for it to die on me (though i do have a backup for that drive, a 1.5TB external, it's just slow as hell)

No excuses, my current desktop has 3 hard drives in it at the moment. One for just the operating system, another for games and programs, and the third is for storing music, movies, and pictures. Unfortunately it is in storage atm so i gotta deal with what i have.

Here's a good one that I think a lot of people on this forum might enjoy!.. Taking a pic of your own car, and adding aftermarket mods to it, to see what it might look like. I.E. Body kit, different spoiler, wheels, etc...

I second this motion.

I was also thinking a tutorial on selective color would be cool. I used to know how to do it but have forgotten. I would give you more rep but it won't let me until I give somebody else rep.

i used to use the pen tool to cut out the parts i wanted to leave colored, select it as a path, then select the inverse (everything else) and desaturate. that worked. much easier way is to use the black and white tool (so you can adjust the color levels) then just use the history brush on the parts you want to bring back to color. just remember to do any sharpening after that step since the history brush will take it back to how it was when you open the image, not just back one step in the history

I'm thinking a nice start may be putting after market wheels on, secondly maybe window tint, applying vinyl decals to the car, and after market body work /kits

any suggestions on taking sharp shots at a dark place with out the noise if you know what I mean? and if there's really bright area in the photo and the main object is in the dark, how do I bring out the main object without making the bright area too bright?

Definitely, my suggestion is one of two things.
Getting in camera.
1.) a flash exposing for the main object. Start f 125 at f5.6- at 100iso

Send me pic then I can show
