Vectra

By urdygurdy  
well i took my slightly modified Vauxhall vectra out in the snow at weekend to see how she coped on the snowy road, what a laugh is all i am going to say, pictured here with Talyllyn Lake in the back ground and the mighty cader idris to the top left of the picture.

Thanks for looking

Darren

Stunning work, like the chrome affect.

aaah, fond memories of my R plate 2.0i Sri.

It sort of looks like a HDR.

As for driving in the snow, try a RWD 350Z for laughs!

I agree, even on the thumbnail it looks like a HDR, they can look a little bit flat if not done correctly. I've never attempted one myself so I can't advise. There doesn't seem to be any true whites in your picture which is what a scene like this needs, plenty of contrast and drama. Compositionally this is great. Similar to one I took in Austria last year! link

I found my Clio Renaultsport 197 surprisingly surefooted despite the amount of rubber in contact with the snow. But so as not to tempt fate I left it on the drive and used the company Astra SRi 150 diesel, which was fun !

This shot has a look of sloping down to the right side.

Love the photo, nice work. As for the car, I thought those things struggle in good conditions Smile (just kidding).

Good shot and well processed. Andrew H has commented on the lack of true whites but I rather like the silvery feel of the photo, with the landscape complementing the silvery car.

The big black area just behind the car is a bit distracting but that's getting quite nit-picky. Smile
