    Aye, should think the above image has been altered somewhat..

    Although, playing with the focus will achieve different results for you ... Depends what camera you have, I guess.

    If you've got a "bog-standard" point and shoot camera, just play around with the distance and aiming until you get it to blur a background sufficiently.

    Edit: By the way, I like how your reg is edited out of the first image, but not the second. I actually chuckled.. It's the simple things, eh, haha.

    The first image has definitely been edited though. It's a good quality camera, no doubt. But you can tell it's been manipulated by the random blurred bits (excluding the reg plate) around various parts of the image.

    Yeah, keep forgetting my reg. I've downloaded gimp 2 but still can't get my photos this good. The paintwork looks amazing.

    Yep, looks like in Steve's pic he's selectively blurred all the area around the car in Photoshop (or similar), makes it stand out from the background/foreground.

    Busted.

    Yep blurred the background to put a bit more focus on the car. so to speak.

    Still finding my way around PS but getting there.

    edit: Camera is a Canon 350D BTW.

    Both , you can tell the first pic is from a SLR camera even tho its been tweeked , you can get a good quality pic from a point and shoot but your pic looks like its done on a camera phone , what camera is it ?

    Yea looks like photoshop to me - he may have sharpened the image where your car sits, and blurred the edges.

    BTW, is it a "spot the difference" competition? If so - I win - the grill is different!!!!!

    Do I get a prize???
