Lovely colours. A little higher viewpoint and you would of had a nice panoramic reflection in the chrome bumper.

very cool. Let me guess how you did it...it looks like you pulled the car partially out of your garage to get the lighting. This is just based on the reflection in the bumper. Great Job!

I love the way you lit this to show off the curves. You nailed it. Cool angle, too.

Aw man, not only a super cool auto, but presented in this photo in a totally cool manner. Just an awesome point of view you've used. Very 'abstracty', in fact it took a moment for it to totally hit me what the photo was of (I find this very cool). Love the black background. A highly interesting photo, I really like it. One minor nitpick though, the reflections in the bumper :-) Looks like that could be a fairly easy clone job.

very cool POV makes it look more liek a "portrait" of a car then a snapshot give it quite a personality. 7

The lighting and exposure on this absolutely awesome, and being one of my favorite subjects doesn't hurt either! Excellent!

Just a tad blurry to me. Well, not blurry but I think it could be sharper...anyway. I like the photo and great lighting. Nice resto on the car too!

Simple, graphic, stunning.
This gets a 9 from me and equal highest score. Just the reflection in the chrome bumper spoild what otherwise is a perfect car image.

great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You obviously took the time to change the background to black, so why didnt you take the time to work on the chrome and the reflections of the trees, etc.?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2006 06:43:41 PM
The color-contrast between the red paint and blue reflections is excellent! Great composition too. Only thing missing is for the lights to be on!

Great shot. Where can I buy one? 7.

VERY nice. I like graphic images and this just blew my socks off.
Will score high without a doubt. I like the subjet matter too.

I could see this in a magazine ad. Love your colors. The red just pops.

i wish the background was totally black
