Taken at Wollaton Hall last weekend. The only problem I find when taking images at these events is the amount of distraction in the background. This one has been edited in Photoshop to blur the background as much as possible without making it look to strange, hope I have achieved this? I have uploaded the original as well to show what it was like before. Any criticism would be very much appreciated. Ian Grin

Nice image Ian - I think the blur and slight darkening work well to remove the distractions.
The only way to separate them entirely from distraction is to make a complete selection of the car and shadow shape, and add a completely new bg -
then there's the reflections in the bodywork and chrome, the list goes on haha..
