    Very good idea to open a gallery :tup:

    As I said on flickr, your Cobra set is excellent, shots 3,4 & 5 have a very realistical rendering and a good vintage toning. But I like also the others, the angle of the #2 or the sense of motion of the #6. and the last one is just beautiful. Bravo !

    Sorry meant your Latest Ferrari F40 - the whole set is awesome!!! The Audi set is again perfect editing but for my taste the camera angles is to direct, front rear and side. AND THE MIURA is a real piece of WORK - Very well done!!!!

    First official visit for me in here and well so far i'm pretty impressed. You definitely got some talent and some of your toning work, particularly witht he retro feel are really nice. :tup:

    I think one of the only areas you could look to enhance is composition, some are good and solid and some are a bit weaker, like in the Cobra set 3 & 4 are a bit tightly cropped and the car sits too close to the edge. But toning is great on this set and they look pretty darn awesome. Hope that doesn't seem harsh.

    But overall I'm seeing great things. I'll be visiting here again for sure. ;) :tup:

    Thank you GPR. And yes I agree with regards to the crop.
    Not to defend myself just my reasoning here goes :
    Reason being that I try to get as little or no people in my images and so crop them out in camera as they still look crap close to the car (the further away the better as one can blur/ distort). I only have Lightroom at the moment and it's editing tools regarding, cloning/healing brush is not the best. I'm currently thinking of purchasing Elements maybe a better editing program (layers etc.) as they work nice together & also GIMP (do not know this one at all). The 4th image was my entry for CCCL and thought the detail of the billboard and hotel signs should be just as strong focus points as the car.

    Thanks for your input - much appreciated.

    This is not the best car image but i liked the buildings on the right in the background and looked like a piece of country my folks use to live where nothing wanted to grow. So - some memories when I saw this.
