very nice shot.  
about the foreground  i agree. maybe a  little bit less space for it and less color would be more ?
"minas" is spanish for " (iron/copper/gold) mines". its evening sun, and .... yes , some vignetting is visible but will be worked out or cropped a little bit,- i will see.

I like the composition and colors alot. Maybe if added a bit of blur to the foreground to calm the weedy chaos? It seems to distract from the true subject.
"Minas" ... I thought so but was not sure.
Thank you both. Less saturation is certainly good. About cropping and/or blur I am not really sure. Slight crop is okay as long as it does not like a pano.
Blur... I've never seen digital blur that really looks like narrow DOF of a lens... and if it looks too artificial I think I'd have some problems with it.
I'll put it aside for while and will see. Thanks again.

Many photographers here are professionals, who count their life on their works.
Since this is a professionals' forum in some extent, I think if we have a thread which people could post their proud works here, and have a place to talk about them, all users here would benefit.

So let's focus on the technics, not the equipments; the art side, not the hardware side.
In the end you are what you shoot, not what camera you use.

And if you like, you can add who are the clients, what's the layout,  where is your inspirition comes from, and how you did it.
Of coz you could just post a image but say nothing, it's ok because just enjoying a great picture is already good enough  .

Edit:We don't care whether it's a commissioned work or a self promotion(personal) one, as long as you are serious and proud of it, it would have a place here!

I'll start with some pics for Harper's Bazaar, the editor wants some shiny effects, so I did this (still not finished retouching):
Shot today, a commercial ad, with Phase One P45+ on Contax 645 and Vario Sonnar 45-90mm, ISO 50, f/11, 1/60s.

Here's something I shot a while back but just got around to imaging.  It was originally shot as an illustration to accompany an article on the glory days of Chrysler and it's hot Mopar motors.  Jim

Gidday Jim,

Cool shot.

It reminds me of when I was a teenager in the 70’s when my mate Manu‘s dad had a Valiant Regal Chrysler which was similar to the car in your shot.

It was purple with a cream vinyl roof. We used to say it was like a lazy boy with a motor attached as it was so comfortable inside.

On very rare occasion his would let us take it for a drive. You can well image the fun two 15 year old boys had in that car.

Cheers

Simon

Jim:

It's such a lovely car..So pityful that we don't see any vintage cars like this here in Beijing. May I ask did you use a lot of dodge and burn(or similar technics) in this photo or is it the result of a polarizer(seems like the effects when I attach a PL in front of my lens when shooting products too)?
Thanks a lot for sharing!

Regards,
Dustblue

Thanks for the compliments!  There's a fair amount of voodoo that went into the imaging.  Something that does look like localized burning and dodging is the clarity slider in Camera Raw.  No polarizer though, sometimes I'll use one but not on this shot.  Jim

Totally in awe of Jim's stunning images, but I dared/was foolish enough to post this regardless! Hass 39, 50-110 zoom, 100 iso, handheld.
