Shutter: 160
Date Uploaded: Feb 4, 2008

Saw this bad boy on the street in DC and knew I had a great shot. Luckily, there was not a car parked in front of it. I wanted to embellish the front, so I took it at the widest angle on my lens. I converted to black and white.

This is a very nice photo and i think that what you did with the clolors is a very nice touch. Maybe crop out that tree in the back. Nice work

Great photograph. The composition is good and the angle of the camera puts the car right in the front of your thoughts as well as your eyes.

The bumpers are slightly clipped by the edge of the frame, so it seems a touch awkward. The background is a little bright and distracting from the car itself. I like the perspective view, the b/w tones and contrast on the car are done well.

I like it! Point of view is dramatic; hope it's not from a fallen pedestrian! Effective in b&w.

For me, the car is very, very nice. A bit unusual angle, and a bit stretched horizontally, but it has attitude (and that is good). I don't recognize the car (which probably means it isn't a US model), which is also good (closest guess would be a 1965 Chevrolet - the V and symbol above remind me of the Chevy markings of the mid-60's. The V and headlight arrangement also remind me of the early 60's Cadillac, but the grille and fenders aren't right...please put what it is in your comments...). But the blown out sky and very light building front in the upper left strongly detract from the shot.

Good shot, sweet car!

This is one where the title confuses me. I'm really not sure what the product is. Intersting POV though.

Nice perspective.
