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 ) 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....), 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.
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.
Slight colour adjustments then HDR to the Mustang only.
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
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
no critique possible, beyond what has been sai - it's an age thing!
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.
