Sweet....I want one!

I suspect that this would be a very good candidate for colour popping, with all the background turned into mono and darkened down very considerably. A very strong vignette would also suit, I feel.
I'd also be very tempted to give the car itself some more agressive contrast/levels treatment to stylise (stylize Tongue) it a bit more and bring up the chrome.
If' I'd shot this with the above processing in mind ai would have most likely given it more room in the frame: it seems a little cramped. You could still achieve this by increasing the canvas size a bit (say 125%) and fade the background out to black at the edges so it's only the car that gets seen, maybe....?
You've also got a bit of crud on the sensor (or maybe a raindrop on the lens) that needs removing with the spot healer or clone tool.
Can't do a mod, I'm afraid, as I'm at work.....

Nice shot, though, David.
Exposure looks spot on and you've got totally perpendicular to the plane of the boot (trunk, sorry - forgot you're from the colonies....Wink), which isn't always easy and the low viewpoint really empahises (er....emphasizes: oops) the grunt of this beast.

Well done shot Dave, - its nicely coloured with good contrast and detail on my monitor. The POV is really nice. Just need to remove the bits at the edge, - not a difficult task.

Hi Dave,

Excellent capture, love it. Not much left to be said really other that ditto to all the above with exception to removing the bits at the side, while I agree with getting rid of the cars front wing on the left I like the other bits as to me this gives a sense of place, which is the show ground. Dave i've had to do a mod and make this Mustang zing, not to everyones taste I except but this car always did and still does stand out from the crowd. Grin

Slight colour adjustments then HDR to the Mustang only.

hi Dave,

i got my driving licence last test of the day in Chesterfield on Dec 31st 1969. it wasnt taken in one of these. at the time i could only dream of a boss mustang, not even sure id be comfortable in one now either Wink

didnt Wilson Picket sing, "i bought you a brand new mustang, a 1969- mustang sally" AHHH the soundtrack of our lives

Great moody sky which suits the car, love the red tone, i wish you could clone out the rear window stickers, wish you could have pulled up a bit more light in the underpan, id suggest cropping out a little of the grass below the car and its a damn shame that extranious detail mean that you have to crop the sides so tight.

but that low view works well and the moody light is a nice change to vivid sunlight and blue sky

If it was my photo, I would bend the photo slightly, put a bit of a fisheye effect on it and maybe a little dodge and burn to emphasise the contours of the car. Add a touch of light under the car with a masked curve adjustment or something simular.

You have some really nice car shots, try some at a 30 - 45 degree angle with the car front pointing towards the floor.

Good work!
