I like it! Very creative.

The collection of silver-grays accented by the yellow pillars and the slight gold tint of the car work well in combination. If the pillarsor the car were a differentcolor, it wouldn't have worked as well.

I notice that you're not directly in front of the car (the brand badge, the inside rear-view mirror, and the inside rear brake light are not lined up), but I don't know if it would have made a difference.

Well done!

I disagree. I think what works best here is the contrast of the smooth lines of the car against the stark vertical lines of the building and the stark horizontal lines of the door.

If you take all that out, it's just a picture of a car.:yawn:

Boily, I like the original. I agree thatit is very clean! I tried a little bit different crop because the guardrail lines are so effective.
