How can you not love these old girls, even when they havent been loved as much as this one.only a small crop to get out some of the distractions and then got rid of all the colour in the bg. You can still see what colour the other cars were in the reflections.

Hi Fiona.

An awesome image.
You have done yourself proud with this capture, i just love the angle used, the backdrop of grayscale and the sheen and reflections are just top drawer. I also like the fact that you have captured all of the front of the car, in frame, it stops you from looking at anything else, wonderful job. TFS

Stv :0))

Love what you did with the colors! Very creative and a good way to isolate the subject. Great pov and good dof with sharp details. I like the color of the car. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Fiona,choosing to eliminate all other colors,other than the cars,gets rid of the attention the other subjects would have taken, off of your main subject,this way the eye goes directly to the car.I like the tight crop & how the car fills the frame.You have captured its reflective shiny paintwork, very well.Who wouldn't want to take this one for a ride.

Very nice selective color work Fiona! This is where HDR would SHINE! Something about metal makes chrome look awesome! Love the color here, the paint job is amazing!

Hello Fiona,what an excellent idea to desaturate the extremities of the shot, so that the colour of the main car becomes the total focus.And I love the fact that the colours of the surrounding cars are reflected in the gloss of S-21322.
A magnificent car, a super sharp shot with beautiful colour.
Tfs, regards Jean.
