Default Intimidating enough?

Trying to convey the massive size of this Rolls Royce. Imagine driving in your Smart car and seeing something like this in your rear view mirror. C&C welcome.

This has me completely puzzled. More than 150 views over 5 days and not one comment/critique. Is it so bad that no one wants to hurt my feelings? Is it so good that everyone is speechless? Or (as my paranoid side thinks) nobody likes me and I'm being shunned.

Maybe because it's a new model? People seem to respond more readily if it's an older car they can show some knowledge about?

Anyway, certainly a big car - doesn't even fit on the forecourt - they've parked it on the bushes. I think it could do with a bit of denoise - there's a fine grain over the image and some chroma noise (on the tyres especially) which detract from the shiny, new look. I'd like a slightly higher angle so you catch the top edge of the windscreen which might show you the total size of the car better. I think such a low angle doesn't show the full length/height of the car as well as it could.

in my opinion, it's a very good shot. i like the way it has a sort of fish eye lens going on in the perspective and composition. the hdrish texture on the car is a great addition as well.

To tell you the truth Walter, this extreme and low scorzo, simply doesn't work for me.

Hmmm. That's a new one for me (scorzo). What does it mean?

Sorry Walter. I may have mixed up Italian and Spanish terms.

Spanish: escorzo.
Italian: scorcio.
English: foreshortening.

Only a loser would imagine himself in a "Smart".
