Rendering

I made a lot of test renders before reaching the final render. For this I used V-Ray RT, which is a very useful test rendering engine because it gives you a fast render and allows you to see everything and change anything. I started off using low values in the render properties and once I'd checked everything was okay, I increased the values.

I'd also recommend that you use Render Elements, as it's a powerful tool in your hands!

Post-production

Photoshop was the program that I used to merge all of my render elements and composite the final image.

Applying Hue/Saturation

The next step was to add some car headlights. Creating headlights in Photoshop is very easy. I started by making an elliptical shape selection.
