Congratulations on your top 20 finish with this attractive and vibrant capture.

phew, really glad you made the top20 :)
Actually, there would be no selective editing required to darken the background, all legal even in Basic Editing. Open the Selective Color Dialog in PS... select blacks from the top picklist, slide the bottom most slider to the right till you see the bk disappear.

Did I already mention how awesome this would look in print ;)
printed out big.

I do not like car pictures but this is pretty darn cool. Great composition.

Nicely captured. I love the burst of color here. Great job!

I like the quirky symmetry of this image. the patterns and shapes are interesting...something about it just makes me want to stay awhile and look around.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

beautiful rendition. Can still see the washer in the background, but that can be fixed with further editing. The sharpness, detail, and color draw my attention away enough that I don't see it. Well kinda. :) 9

lovely...I would have dodged out the background as it is distracting and messy in the top left corner and takes away from the smoothe lines and clarity at the front 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2006 12:38:22 PM
Amazing image. The color and overall clarity is awesome. Very nicely composed too. One nitpick, I can see the background objects in the shadows. With this image having such a stunning graphic quality, would've darkened that area out.
p.s.
This would make such an awesome print 8)

bg wall paraphenalia is distracting, might want to burn that in next time. Cool composition, nice color, nice chrome.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2006 06:48:48 AM
Beautiful color, love the car, chrome and the checkered floor. I wish I didn't notice the wall behind (I'm thinking a gausian blur or digital camera noise removal would take care of that nicely or else some burning to that background). Still a great composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2006 03:49:51 AM
love this!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2006 11:12:19 PM
Very cool shot. I love the floor. The stuff on the wall in the back is a little distracting...maybe you can remove that or just darken up that whole wall?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2006 06:23:47 PM
A fresh take. I like the perspective, cropping and lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2006 09:02:10 AM
wicked cool

Great...love you can see the inside of the shop a bit too...10

The background distracts me because it is not dark enough so i can see some radio and a clock on the wall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of best .. ice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2006 12:39:29 AM
this is great! I love gradients in tones like this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 10:13:39 PM
Nice shot. It's not easy getting a shot like this with all the reflections from a good paint job and lots of chrome.

I only wish the hood was down and the haning power cord in the background was gone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 09:11:28 PM
The stuff in the background is just a little distracting. Good picture though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 01:37:50 PM
The checkerboard looks nice reflected in the chrome.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 12:42:50 PM
Cool! Too bad for the things in the back ground, but I love it! 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 02:14:25 AM
Good exposure and cropping. Looks vaguely familiar ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 12:40:12 AM
?I want!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 11:43:17 PM
I hope you have a series of shots...I'd like to see more like this. I love the reflection of the checker floor in the bumper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 11:13:28 PM
The reflextion of the floor on the crome is a great effect!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 10:12:16 PM
Great lines color and chrome. Great 50s feel. My only complaint (albeit a small one) is the stuff in the background. The loose cord is a distraction. Other than thta - wonderful shot. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 08:08:35 PM
Certainly has that "wow" factor. Good framing, color, and I like the reflection of the flooring in the chrome.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 07:02:26 PM
great, sharp, nice colours, great lighting. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Since you could use advanced editing for this challenge I might have made the background on the left black or white to get rid of the distracting stuff on the garage wall. Otherwise awesome shot and beautiful reflections in the metal of the car. I also like the composition with the car split down the middle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 12:16:23 PM
This would easily be a 10 if the wall in the background wasn't there distracting from the cool lines and colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 09:03:12 AM
stunning! 9!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 08:47:32 AM
Entered something similar myself in 'Something Old', but you did a better job than me! Only thing I might've done with yours is make use of the advanced editing to get rid of some of the wires etc in the top left backgound.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 08:28:11 AM
great pic just find the background on the left a bit distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 06:27:17 AM
Pity about the visible background, otherwise, great evocative picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 05:32:14 AM
Nice angle and the tiled floor makes the image quite unique...old cars are always fascinating..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 05:01:30 AM
good reflection a full frontal would have been excellent with the chequered floor tiles
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 01:11:56 AM
Great lighting, such a clean, crisp image. Very effective crop too, good luck with your score. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 01:08:04 AM
Splendid! I can see this winning a ribbon although I'm wondering how much better this would look with the other half of the car in the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 12:37:53 AM
Perfect with the checked floor. What a beauty. I love those old ones. We had a 57 aqua Belaire station wagon when I was little. Called it the "Blue Goose."

This is cool - nice a clear and sharp. Good coloring and I like the crop too.

Great shot !! Could do without the cords in the background, but, really nice.
