Default Alfa Romeo

Please opinions.

What do you think that the focused object is to the left?
Is the picture too sharp, contrast?

Thanks.

The car/tire in the background is distracting and the foreground vehicle needs a bit more DOF. I'd crop, maybe vertically, to remove the background car as much as possible. Better yet, if you can, reshoot.

Wise words from Walter. The Alfa Romeo should be totally in focus, especially considering there isnt much there to see. Not a huge depth of field. The background should be as out of focus as you can get. What you have there is good. Only problem is, as Walter says, there is too much of it and it overpowers the Alfa.

i would also taken more of 3/4 view so you could at least read the alfa romeo logo on the front, doing so would also have taken out the tire in the background and put the front of this car more as the prime focus of the picture.

OK, thanks all for comments. I think some thing like the follwoing is better. It is not the Alfa logo, but you can read who made the head light

I will express a divergent opinion. I like the framing of a "rough," and "macho" view of the tire. I would blur the Romeo, and shoot the tire...

As it is now, I agree with the others - The tire is a distraction. I simply believe that if done as I see it in my mind, you would have a better "car" shot, if not as good a shot of the Romeo...
