This Picture was taken on the 11th September 2010, at the New Brighton Rally. It is an image of a Ford Escort Mk2, that is used as a Racing car.

I have increased the saturation on this picture, (possibly too much?), because the original picture looked like it was a bit dull, and "grey-washed".
I have the intention to make the background black and white, to make the Car stand out even more.

I apologise for the Slanted Horizon.

Any tips, criticisms, or constructive comments, are very welcome.

Thanks,
Alex

As you point out, a slanted horizon, but a good image.

Been to this meet loads of time.

Colour selecting the car would bring it 'out' of the picture, it really is a bright orange colour! Smile If you are going to have a 'play' with the image, it's a simple matter to straighten the horizon. The fact you've managed to capture the racing car so sharply is brilliant - well done!

Great photo, and my sneak preview of the colour selection was better though Wink to sort the horizon, you can just rotate the image in photoshop then crop out the transparent spaces left in the corners Smile I would recommend a slight gausian blur on the rest of the image excluding the car though, just to really put emphasis on the bright bold car Smile
Well done!
