Default Playing in Photoshop

After a trip to a local country fair, I thought I would have a play with Photoshop to give a selected colour print.

I like it Dal, I think it might work even better if the color subject did not fill so much of the frame, though. Are American made classic automobiles that common in the UK? I noticed others in your flicker stream, where you had a number of nice shots.

It works for me, I like it.
The only thing that I would change is to color of the green paper. I would make that sephia tone or black/white to match the background.

You did good Dal!
I checked out your flicker site too. Some awesome pix, I just wish they were labeled with year make and model.

NonEntity1 - thanks for your kind comments. I see what you mean, though, the colour is a bit "in your face" and should be smaller. American classics aren't common, unfortunately, but there are always plenty for show purposes. With petrol at 1.05 per litre (around 5 per gallon) not many can afford to run them, as they get 8-15mpg

Superakuma - Changed the colour of the green paper

Goldwinger - Thanks for the comments. I always forget the pen and paper when I visit these places. I should leave a notebook in my bag. I do remember some of them so will update them.

Rodney - Thanks for looking

Looks good to me - your car show looks like fun. That green paper is an interesting example of how something that's small can become a distraction under certain situations. It rather fades into the full color version, but stands out in the modified version. It looks much better in your last version.

Beautiful renditions Dal...I like the "in-your'face" composition. It seems to fit the profile of the vehicle.

Nice. I like it with the green paper changed, too.
