These are from last week'* wash and wax. I played around with the black and white background and thought they looked good. Thanks for checking it out.

Wow now that adds a different flare to the pictures.

How do you cut out the car btw? I can't seem to find a quick way to do it

I used Picnik.com. First, you upload a picture, then click on the "Create" tab, and find the "Effects" button underneath that. Scroll down to find the Black and White effect. It turns the whole picture black and white, and you can then use a brush to bring color back where you want it.

Apply black and white, go over the parts you want color with the history brush.

I use Linux Ubuntu (not Windows), so Photoshop is a no-go for me, at least for now.

Really? How'd you do that? AFAIK, you have to use Wine for that, and I've never really had much luck.
