I am afraid that I don't think this is so good. Having taken a lot of classic cars over the years I can relate to the problems of not being able to get one on its own, away from nearby cars and "car show" reflections. Selection if often impossible to avoid. The selection has to be sympathetic to the vehicle though. This crop takes no account of the long low smooth lines of the Aston. As badgerfred says, the eye is drawn to the reflections of another car. The main feature is a steering wheel and the square crop couldn't be less appropriate for this car. I am not usually negative and I apologise for being so, but it is a passion of mine to create sympathetic images of gorgeous cars.....Peter

I did one very similar to this a few years ago. It was the cottage at Nash Point lighthouse. The doors and windows were green not blue, but the composition and stark nature were the same. Yours is better than mine, though and I think that the inclusion of the brush is what makes the difference. Looking back mine was a bit too dehumanised, but the brush gets rid of that feeling altogether. Well done. I learned something here ! ...Peter

This is a good landscape with really vibrant colours, but for my taste it is TOO centralised. I see how you worked to get all the lines to point to the central tree, but couldn't it have been done with the tree slightly off centre ? There is less of interest on the left hand side, so perhaps the left hand border could have been brought in a bit. Having said that, I still wish I had taken it !!! ...Peter
