    Nope. If anything, it's UNDERexposed, but I think it serves the photo well, here.

    A-ha... a pun!

    That being said, I do agree with Harmony that a little more exposure (in the photographic front) would have really helped to pop the colours a bit and bring some more richness to them. Very nice find!

    According to the background buildings, it's off kilter.

    I thought everyone knew that term. ;)

    Basically the building are leaning to the right. I didn't notice till Early pointed it out.

    I think it is fine, the UO contributes to the feel. I can't tell the slant until someone pointed it out. 7/10

    I dig it..looks like an album cover. Just a hunch but were you were focusing on the headlight?

    Peanuts is right-on with the title and exposure (as well as Harmony). I love the title, it's perfect. The green channel is week. It needs to be boosted. Otherwise I think composition is fine.

    Could you explain what you mean by "The green channel is week(sic) and needs to be boosted..??" Do you mean green hue? - or luminosity?

    Exposure seems fine to me - here is the pic corrected for WB...

    exposure looks fine. personally though, i would have either gone B&W/Gray Scale or popped the saturation a little bit. maybe tried for a cross processed look?

    nice composition though

    I wonder how this image would look if you shot from a lower point of view and kept most of the front end in the image.

    The car is overexposed [to the outdoors], yes.

    The picture itself I think is underexposed. You lost all the detail of the wheel and wheel well.

    since your pics are okay to edit, here's what I did. bumped the brightness and contrast a bit, popped the saturation and put a vivid color filter and a cooling filter of the top
