Challenge: Life II (Basic Editing)

My husband was in a car accident on Saturday afternoon. This is what was left of his poor car. Thank GOD he is ok. It could have been much worse. He IS lucky to be alive.

Post challenge: I totally forgot to sharpen this image...not that it would have helped the score! haha. I knew it wasn't a great shot...but it was really meaningful to me, since my husband was SO lucky not to be hurt. One second of time could have made this accident a lot worse. So for me, this shot celebrates HIS life. :)

Hey Hey!
Teammate Rooster here!

This was a risky shot & I'm glad you took it! Screw the score, creatively this was a great shot.
Some quick thoughts:
THe colours are deep here & contrast very well. I'm really feelin' it. I also love the title. Very appropriate. The crop is nice as well. The focus seems a bit off tho & I think USM would have kicked this shot up.
Good stuff dude!
Peace
Rooster

Hope this wasnt you. Looks pretty scary. Seems a bit soft on the focus but a strong image none the less.

That's a nice new perspective! The blue looks a bit oversaturated thoughl
