Went for a drive with my sister. As soon as I started shooting the cars I knew what to do.

I know you (probably) couldn't move it, but the pole is really distracting. I like the car though :).

Works well for hte immovable challenge.
Backgroung car/Caravan and pole are istracting. Maybe a slightly different angle to at least remove the other car out of the photo would have helped. Taken a little more side on. Can't do much about the pole (unless you move the immovable car of course).
Light is good, playing with the depth of field, keeping the women and car in focus and the caravan/trees/fence more blurred could also have worked remove the clutter......

Hey Ma!!! Go push that car for me!

I like the colors and the contrast in this one.

could have taken the picture a bit more closer to the car and the person

This is funny but may have been better if the other car and trailer were not seen in the background, perhaps shooting from a different angle?

Doesn't really catch the eye. if oyu saturated the colours a bit to bring out the rust in the car it might look better.

56 Buick? That thing would be hard to push on 4 good tires!

Nice. Does she know it's not the lawn mower she is trying to push? Perhaps a crop/angle to exclude the other car might have given another feel.

Nice communication of the idea in this photo. But I can tell that wreck's going nowhere :-)

could you have taking this shot from the other side of the car? that white wall is a little dull and if you could drop your DOF this shot may work better IMHO

That poor old car surely looks immovable in that condition but it could be a classic with some TLC! it might be fun to play with the PP on this to brighten and sharpen it up a bit.

Good luck. Not a bad image, but lacks pop. And lighting is a bit dull on the car compared to the bright white shirt.

The background's too busy. Maybe if you'd moved to the left the angle would've worked better.

This is a great photo, but a different angle may have eliminated a distracting background

you go gurl
09/10/2008 11:44:30 AM
A very realistic scene indeed
09/10/2008 09:01:13 AM
haha here we go make the women get out there and push, LOL. This is funny, I wonder how this would have looked b&w, with the old car and her outfit and glasses, nice job, 7.

I think the composition of this shot would be helped greatly by getting a bit closer and not including quite so much of the surroundings. As it is, I find myself following the "wall" up and through the frame to the other cars, the RV, etc, and just generally looking at the surroundings rather than what you are showing. Maybe if you just included the backend of the car, and her hands, and had really good focus and exposure (which looks okay at this distance), it would be a more interesting shot.

a closer picture, too many things on the picture that are wasting it.

i bet that car looked fine in its day..

Too soft and I feel the image is too cluttered.

I love the old car, the colour is great. The model looks a wee bit bored or something though, the inclination of her face suggests to me she's not paying much attention to the task at hand.

What nice composition! The camera angle, had it been a bit more oblique (towards the lady), would have helped more I think. Great texture on the car. Another angle would have been one that shows the actor's expressions.
