    Too little...you didn't put any work into post-processing except a PS filter.

    Theres quite a bit for your info ... start with b&W Then color adjustments then contrast and then add a cooling filter then the plastic treatment..

    I wouldnt shoot off at the hip like that when you have no idea what the image started as!

    Thanks for your INSIGHTFUL comments anyways :lol:

    Trying to create a different impression on classic cars is hard to say the least , if you have every followed vintage car art you may have more of a liking for it..
    heres what i started with.

    I would appreciate the comments to be towards an understanding of the artistic concept if its not your cup of tea then fine but please don't criticize my work because its not your taste.

    IMO, the OP has lost the sense of what the picture originally was without gaining anything in return.

    All of the structural elements are cut off in some way and there is no tension or balance in the composition.

    Sorry,

    I go by a rule of thumb never ever ever use photoshop filters. They are made to make stuff look fake aka brush strokes and sponge....never use it for photography because its extremely fake looking. IMHO

    Looks fine if that is what you're going for. I think it looks good but it's a shame it's a crop instead of closer.

    I like the science fiction look of the pre-mid-60s cars. The treatment here pushes that nicely.

    Looks like you're trying stuff instead of 'snappy-shoting' -- kudos.
