Metropolitan Avenue, a busy, once-industrial street in Queens, NYC, has become the home to numerous classic car enthusiast meetings. I felt that the presence of this old Thunderbird, surrounded by the factory-esque architecture took me, for just a few seconds, into the Cold War era.

oversharpened, oversaturated. If you over sharpen you get haloing, which you can see around the trees

Sweet car. There are a ton of compression artifacts showing here. You can see them around all the hard edges, especially in the yellow of the roof and around the edges of the trees. (Not to mention the haloing in the sky, a frequent side effect of some treatments) With a file size of only 70k, you had a lot more overhead to use less compression. Compression kills detail. Always adjust JPEG compression so that your file size is as large as possible, but within the challenge limit. (150k for this one)
