Oh how I love old cars.

Watching this all week I have worn the update button out. I felt like it was the little train that could.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am so doing a boogeywoogey in my chair right now, and a HUUUUge smile!!!
Thank you everyone
It only took 600 miles to find this car and the funny part is, I would do it again.


Thank you all for the lovely comments, y'all rocked my world this week!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay it is the next day and I am still doing the boogeywoogey!!!
Thank you all for the congrats, totally made my week!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
none of this would have been possible if it where not for my team, thank you team Globetrotters!

Way to go Jules!!! Great shot...came out of semi retirement to make this comment :) I love the palette and tones, and tbh I'm blown away that the DPC voters liked such a grungy image. Well done....fab work. I think it would really benefit from a strong border if you're going to hang it. Best, N x

This pic would score MUCH higher is the TEXACO sign was brighter IMO, still great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2009 08:48:07 PM
I love the composition and the exposure in this frame
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2009 05:17:39 PM
Looks like it should be in a magazine
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2009 01:37:13 PM
Like it. I'd like to know how you adjusted this for such a look under basic rules.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2009 04:52:06 PM
I like the composition and texture here. I guess just a bit more work with dodging and burning to make these colors and texture Pop would make this image stunning, IMO. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2009 03:23:28 PM
Classic... I expected shots like this on this challenge... this is one of the best entries IMO

Feels slightly cramped composition.. but that adds to the mood IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2009 12:43:44 PM
If this wasn't Basic editing, wouldn't you love to get rid of that wire? Still a great shot and definitely one of my favorites in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2009 05:56:04 PM
Yeah!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2009 01:48:56 PM
Lovely shot, pity it was only basic editing as that cable top left is a distraction and the image would be better without it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2009 07:04:46 PM
This is good...really like the old Texaco sign...and the rusty old truck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2009 12:31:34 PM
Pretty cool that this old truck is there too. You must have used a split ND filter on this to darken the sky and sign? Works pretty well except for the sign (meaning good idea on controlling the sky). Anyway...good luck in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2009 12:18:29 PM
nice shot, love the angle, and the rusty car is great 8

02/18/2009 10:30:11 AM
nice feel here...the muted colors really work well...thus far my favorite
