    funnily Touareg is a father of Cayenne since Porsche made this on the base of VW, this is why they look similar in shape. even more surprising Touareg is not cheap at all. i was comparing prices of both a few years ago and was surprised to see not a very big difference.

    I'll take not bad for a first try.

    No filters, just an hour or two in PP. How I achieved it, well its combination of multiple exposures, manual blending, burning, masking, gradient, levels, saturation, contrast and some other things that I can't remember.

    They are very similar cars. Though the pricing is similar, the features you get in a Touareg are more than a similar priced Cayenne from what I know about cars. The basic option Cayenne is REALLY very basic but for the same price you can get a almost full option V6 (which my friend owns). This car makes my Land Cruiser Prado feel stone aged though wish it was better at offroading. In the last picture I tried to get it kinda stuck in sand to make a good shot, managed to only get the front tyres into deep sand...

    2 & 4 are by far the best faisal. I'd probably prefer 4 if the car was up the hill slightly more. It doesn't quite sit right for me.

    Be careful not to seperate the car from the backgorund too much as well. In 5 it looks like the car has been cut out and stuck on.

    The wheel looks like it has fallen off in 7

    As I was telling Gintaras...I tried to put it up the tiny hill but it refused to move higher. Basically #7 and #4 are different angles of the same car position....

    # 5....need to figure out how to do the night shot properly...

    Thanks!!!
