A different treatment of the MG grill with a commercial slant. (Nameplate isolated and highlighted with levels and sharpness adjustment--Zoom blur applied to rest of image)

The idea is brilliant. The execution is a bit off with the typeface used. The words should be very legible and sit above the photo instead of getting lost in it. But, as I said except for that little matter this is brilliant.

I agree with you on the typeface. I was not happy with it either because the wording tends to get lost in the downward axis of the grill. I like it being below the logo,but I think putting it above would detract from the dominant red starburst effect. The text tool in PSP XII should be easy to use, but I've struggled with getting the effect I want with it.

Nice job.

You might try either outlining the text with an off color (lighter) or using an off color drop shadow to help the text show.
