Though it may seem as I just upload the pictures that I took straight from my camera here, but taking the photos is the easy part. I take tons of pictures and look through each one in my editing program, and when I find the good shots, then it is time for editing. It could take me 5 minutes to edit one shot or it could take me 30+ minutes just to work on one picture, and not because there is something wrong with it or anything like that, but rather just to enhance it. I don't like to make the pictures unnatural looking, and photoshop anything and everything I could, I like to keep them looking as natural as possible, but at the same time, make them look good. This photo here is of Vinny Avanti's beautiful W900 that was parked along Richmond Terrace hauling salt in February 2014. The top picture is obviously the before shot, straight off the camera, and the bottom is the edited. I did not photoshop anything out/in except the front plate on the truck. I think the edited picture came out pretty good, it was shot through a car window so the the sharpness and the highlights aren't the best, even as I tried to correct them.

I really like the way the photos look after your photoshop work. I should drop the cash and try to mimic your skill.

Its definitely worth it. I'd personally buy Lightroom then photoshop, Lightroom is about $150 which isn't too bad. And once you buy it and a new one comes out you pay maybe 3/4 of what the actual price is since you have a old version already!
