    hi there,

    on the official formula one website (www.formula1.com) there is a
    section called technical analysis. take for example the moncao race.
    if you click on to this page:
    http://www.formula1.com/race/technical_analysis/757/285.html
    you will see the toyota car in its front section. i am ok with
    isolating the car and getting the faded effect, but does anyone know
    what sort of effect the artist has applied to the actual car itself? i
    would love to be able to apply this to everyday photography i take. i
    have adobe photoshop but have not installed it yet, i have been using
    various other packages.

    thanks in advance,

    noccer

    It looks to me like an illustration not a photograph.

    indeed i did think that myself for a while, but the sheer pace at which
    they are added up on to the website once the new car components are
    introduced is staggering, leading me to belive they are photos
    doctored, not illistrations.
    plus the millimetre accuarcy & reality of the pics are also something
    that cannot be matched by a hand drawing in such a short space of time.
    i mean, they are sometimes posted up on the net within minutes of
    practice, qualifying and race sessions having ended.

    That is UNQUESTIONABLY an illustration. Trust me, there are some
    seriously professional illustrators out there. You underestimate them
    significantly.

    The artist has not applied an effect. That diagram is not a photograph.
    It is a piece of artwork drawn by an artist, not a filter run on a
    photographic image.

    The Web site has the money to hire a team of professional illustrators.

    It's an illustration, hell it's even signed by the artist.

    The chap who created this illustration, is not even an illustrator, he's a
    programmer, in fact amazing as it may seem, this is I believe, his first
    attempt at a car!
