Things Weren't So Rosy in the 30's
2nd PlaceThings Weren't So Rosy in the 30's
Kylie


Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Pink (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Kodak DX7590
Location: Sacramento, California
Date: Feb 4, 2005
Aperture: f/3
ISO: 140
Shutter: 1/8s, -1/3 exp comp
Galleries: Vintage, Transportation
Date Uploaded: Feb 6, 2005

Taken at the annual Autorama indoor car show at Cal Expo. I brought out a little more pink, a slight crop, cloned out some background clutter on the left, and resized. I prefer seeing it with all the highlights and glare spots - for me, it gives it the dazzle & energy; but I also know that I will get scored low for this.

Kylie,

I'd hitchhike to California if I thought you could make a picture of me look that good. My chassis has changed designs many times over; pictorial history needs updating.

There is a major difference between "Old" and "Classic" - you seem to have a talent for capturing the better of the two.

Kathy

PS: There was no surprise in discovering that you receive one of the largest numbers of comments. Terrific portfolio.

Thank you! I hardly do any editing because I am so weak at it, and I think I am just obstinate that way! I cloned out the part of the floor showing that bothered some, but didn't like it that "clean" and put it back in! lol

I PM'd you also, but thought I'd leave a comment here, too. It is fine to remove "minor distractions" in a "member" challenge, but big no-no in an "open" challenge.

Picked this as a top 3 right of the bat. Excellent use of the color, effective lighting, and gives the flavor of another era. Guess I'm gonna have to plunk down my $25 some day.....

02/15/2005 10:27:55 AM
The highlights and glare spots were beautiful, as was the photo in its entirety. It seemed a bit too sharp for me, but then that's just my preference for softness.
Great job!

I'm at work with a few minutes to spare so I had a quick peek at the site, as soon as I saw the second place winner I knew it was yours having seen your car shots before.

Well done, I know you did for you not the ribbon, bet it feels good anyway!!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2005 11:45:58 PM
I like the composition on this one. The color is beautiful as well. The reflections are pretty distracting, especially on the lower right fender. The largest one keeps pulling my eye away from the grill and headlights, which I would think are the focal point. There are also some distracting reflections in the grill. That being said, it's still a nice shot. At least it isn't a flower. ;o)

02/08/2005 12:40:07 PM
Wow! What a beauty! It's just an opinion offered to be helpful, not critical -- but I think the composition might have been a little stronger if it had been cropped more on the left leaving the car to fill the frame. Best of luck!

This is extremely loveable, and lovingly rendered. The angle is a littlke awkward for me, which keeps it a notch below 10. I'd have cloned out the bumper mount and the bit of floor lower left, this would have helped quite a bit for me.
