1. Wonderful picture.
I'm amazed the car interior / steering wheel / dash seem sharp and in focus, and the outside car even appears to be in relatively decent focus. It would have been a dark day, so even with an uwa focal length, it would seem like you'd need some extra DOF from stopping down, and I suppose a rather high ISO.
This is one of many images where I find myself wondering about the EXIF. Is it available, or is this LuLa forum newbie missing how to access EXIF? Ah, now I notice that a cell phone was involved. That explains quite a bit.
2. My 2˘ of things to consider:
- To me, the light triangle on the left is distracting. You wouldn't want to crop it out in order to keep the street light. Perhaps clone it out?
- Try to make the tail-lights have some "glow", perhaps almost a colorized effect on this nearly b/w image. However, that might not be trivial to do convinciingly. Easy to suggest, not necessarily easy to accomplish. I have my doubts I could do such a glow with my limited p.p. skills, at least in a reasonable amount of time.
- Consider having your descriptive words after the picture. Or minimize? To me, the description was not only a distraction, but in some ways detracted from the image.
- For example, I originally assumed the cars were moving ... and I thought ... "How in the heck did he make that image?". When you commented that you had stopped the car, that took just a bit away from my sense of amazement.
1. Thanks for the kind remark.

which I append:
“I've knocked the idea around a few times, may be worth trying to see if it sticks.
Basically, I thought it might be nice to have a spot where we can hang pix that aren't looking for 'critique', that exist just for the hell of it, and seemed to be a good idea at the time they were sketched.
I kick it off with a self portrait shot in the office by looking out of the door.
No harm done – just something to bear in mind.
