I like it....panel deliveries, especially based on cars, are not common. Do you know the history of that old Chevy ?

What's it got..Chevy 350 V8...THM 350 tranny ?

Nice car...very bright green paint.

Looks like a drag car...any times ?

first time I saw thia post sorry E =p (E= MC2)

The car is nice..For sure. I think it's nice to gave a black/white background and colored car.

Just one thought popped up into my mind as I saw this pic: How you the picture be if your car lining matched the building lining? As they will run both parallel?? Or.... make both lines having a angle of 45 or even 90 degrees??

You know what I try to say? Would that make the composition better? or would it look very un-natural?

the car has a 327 destroked to 311 so it would rev higher for the 1/4 mile shot.
in its day it ran in the hi 12s but you have to keep in mind that this thing is a tank even compared to the older heavy muscle cars of its time that still only ran 11s or 12s. i tried the 90 degree angle shot, never thought about the 45 and it looked ok but this just happened to be my favorite. ecap

I had a 327 V8 in my '67 Camaro RS with 4 speed Muncie. The 327 is a member in good standing of the small block Chevy V8 family.

12's are good for , as you say , a heavy bodied vehicle.

Nice selective job Liked the background suggesting tradition!

I'd, howevertrysome furtherstriking perspective to be able to emphisize this baby even more!

Hope you don't mind my humble attempt : )

You're right saying that you did not see a difference between the two! Actually there is, but not that much, since I realize that I only saved the 'in between' copy while comparing the steps in the 'history' window Still, the nearest corner of the car looks a bit much nearerthere.My idea was togive more emphasis to the car in the frame without sacrificing the background. So I used the distortion tool tofurther enhance the perspective a little and clonned the foreground on the 'extended' canvas so as to avoidhaving to crop the parts of the car while doing the final cropping. Well...I don't really call it an edit since there's nothing wrong in the original picture regarding exposure, etc,but just a version intended to make some sense for a further job if necessary.Hope, nota sad disappoitmentin meetingyour request for criticism and comment above... Btw,theinitial sentences I had written at my previous post regarding the background and selectivejob are still valid ; )

Cheers,

Bahadır
