This is pretty great, with the wide angle letting the hood with those colors fill up the frame and leading towards that windshield

The gearbox that looks like a smiley face..
The light
The paint colour
The leaves
The reflection of the roof window on the windscreen

This is a list of the reasons for thinking this photo deserves my award (one day, this year!)

Bravo, excellent!

Good memories, in more ways than one. I do prefer this in colour (I went back to check), it has a livid, bruised look. And I remember recognizing Båstnäs, it's a special place. You did it justice.

Phew ... now that I've got to the end of that plethora of well deserved comments, I think it's all been said above! What else is there to say, other than it's a fantastic image - beautifully seen, sympathetically photographed and effectively processed. Woodini254 above said it reminded them of the car from the film Christine, which I completely agree with as I thought the same. Only this one's the slightly more deviant, definitely darker, octogenarian older sister of Christine ... the one that comes in the night and steals your dreams while you sleep Smile

Hello Arne, I just looked at "Car Cemetry" again. This colour version is just as beautiful but more enchanting than haunting, maybe because of the glow you've given to the dull, metallic colours. And i like the new title very much.
Cheers,
Bob
