Pretty good for a car show photo!! There are always soooo many distracting elements in the background--other cars, signs, sexy models, gawking car show attendees scoping on the sexy models, etc,etc.. And yeah, the image is "cooked"...but in a decent way. Love the purple and lavender colors in the background. I've seen many car show pics that were much,much worse in all areas. This isn't too bad.
