Old Italian scooter

I really like this... the lighting in it is somehow very inviting, as are the colours. The classic blue and terracotta are very italian!
There are a few things I'd change... I'd crop closer on the RH side to exclude the saddle. Including just a tiny bit of it is a little distracting I think. I'd also move the twigs from the bottom LH corner as they distract a little from the nice round wheel.
Finally (and this is very picky of me) I find it a bit of a shame that the white marks on the pebble dashed wall are at the same height as the handlebars. Is there anything you can do in PS or LR to get rid or make those less obvious?
There's something about this image that does make me smile... just not entirely sure what it is
Nice shot. Just a slight mod with a crop and and a touch of hue/saturation as well as a little bit of colour curves and there you are, finally some unsharp mask. I left the twigs etc because they don't really look out of place.
Thank yo so much for your comments Lianna. You know, my daughter told me exactly the same excluding the saddle. 2-0. I decided to leave the white marks on the wall as they're telling something else about the owner's habits as they are produced by leaving the scooter there everyday. But I agree, aesthetically it'd be better to remove them. Thank you again.
Thank you Graham, as I see your ideas are quite similar to Lianna's. Good result.
That bit of saddle had to go! Much stronger without it.
I've been trying to work out what it is that attracts me here. The metallic tones are pure ice blue, but the feel is grungy, worn, been about a bit. Experienced. That's an interesting combination.
Yes, remove the seat, otherwise excellent image in every respect - except the logo - it really pulls the eye.
The saddle is unanimous. The marks on the wall for me are fine.
Thank you all.
Lose the saddle (or, alternatively, step back and include at least half of it) and you have a stunner. You have a nice contrast between the (almost) smooth, shiny blue metal and the rough orangey wall.
