It is a shame there is not a bit more room around the wreck, but a very nice find all the same.

The car is nicely positioned in the frame Judy, with plenty of space to the right even though it is not going anywhere. Those fluffy clouds just seem to add to the desolate scene in a funny kind of way.

In my mod I have boosted the contrast a bit of the car and the landscape just to give it a bit more pop.

A very nice find there. I'd liked to have seen a bit more space to the left and bottom of the wreck to give it a sense of isoltion. Also perhaps a B&W version would bee good as well just to increase the bleakness.

I've uploaded a B&W version just to give you an idea of what I'm on about.

I have just added another version with a little more space, what do you think?

For my liking the composition is far too tight. When you are taking a photograph or creating the composition always have in mind why you took the shot in the first place.The concept of the shot is to show the car in a deserted area so I think much more range is needed around the car to show more of the environ and give the shot more feel.

My rusty copper wire dial-up doesn't allow me to switch between versions at the moment so I'll just stick to comenting on this one. I agree with some above that the car needs more space b ottom and left - not a lot, just so it doesn't feel so cramped in the frame. I'd also love if the main cloud could be included comlete as it's a strong balancing part odf the comp.

It could do with a little boost in contrast but in danger of burning out some of the clouds so would have to be done on layers or selections to protect the parts susceptible to burn-out. Dodging and burning might wok well here

Hope that's some use, nice work..
