I believe it's a 1951 pontiac chieftain. Couldn't get a better shot of the odometer, however I wish I would of removed the weed in front of the bumper? CC or any input on them? Also if any one is stronger than the other let me know which one you like.

Nice subject. Like the shots.

I think the color could be more rich and the contrast could use a bump in all of them. They are all just a bit flat.

I really like the last shot. I took the liberty (as per "My Photos Are OK to Edit) to remove the weed and level it out with the bumper (it cut your signature a tad) and slightly boost the saturation!

Hope you like:

These would be a very good candidate for HDR


Quick tone mapped and color adjustments using photomtatix, photoshop and nik color effex

Thank you guys and girls for all your kind replies. Unfortunately I didn't have my tripod or else I would have tried some HDR!

Liked the first and the last shot, try HDR u don't need multiple shots, just over expose the same shot using +1EV and under expose -1EV, save them separately, and use photomatix to bring out the contrast, highlights and opacity in the image...
Like this one:

Thats not "True" HDR that is just tonemapping.

The front of the car looks promising, but I'd explore framings between the first and last images. The first doesn't have enough in it to make a good composition and the last has too much.

I would really like #3 if you didn't clip off the top and bottom of the speedometer. Perhaps some focus stacking as well, however you previously mentioned you didn't have your tripod.

Interesting shot anyway.

EDIT: I took the liberty of taking the tonemapped image that vipgraphx provided and added a guasian blur to separate the subject from the background more. Its pretty rough since I'm working on a school computer in the middle of class and I was a bit rushed for time, but you get the idea ;)

Awesome, I can make out the rust eating away the car clearly in this one. Thanks for trying it out!!!

Yes, the door handle is great. Did you use the 80-200 lens?
Also, the images are edited? Can you show the originals also, and tell us exactly what did you tweak?
