Thanks very much for your interest, Julie. Rest assured, I have nothing against cropping and in this case, your suggestion is just what the doctor ordered. You're right - there's too much irrelevant clutter at the bottom. When I took the shot I thought I'd include it to enhance a sense of abandonment etc but the crop tightens things up without interfering with that element.
Popnfresh: If I had had the presence of mind to concentrate more on the window at the time, I'd be a happier camper but unfortunatly, in the rush of blood to the head, I subconsciously noted the obvious but failed miserably to react and didn't really see the possibilities until I was sitting at my computer playing around with the Lightroom crop which is a wonderful tool for finding out what you should have done but didn't.
Many thanks to all for your continuing interest in this series. I'll keep you posted if I find any more elderly cars peeping out from their resting places in the Irish countryside.
