Default January Challenge - Before And After - Acid44

Hey all, feeling like I need a break from the low poly modeling, so I'm gonna join in this and see if I can keep up.

I figure the easiest thing for me to do was to put a car on a road, but then I realised that lighting and stuff is bloody hard... Still going to try though Haven't made a final decision on the photo I'll be using yet, but I found one I like that I took ages ago on my PhotoBucket that I may use.

Nice resolution on your photo. Was it taken near sunset or sunrise? Looks a little dark on my screen.

Taken not too long before sunset, really liked how it turned out with the lighting and such.

Got some of the car now, a McLaren MP4-12C
