Actually I like your crop even though the pundits will tell you to use square format with round objects, but we all know rules are for fools and ought to be broken. I like the "vastness" of sky felt with your presentation it works. Thank you for your response.

Actually, that looks like a Aichi D3A. A "Val" carrier bomber. Nice find though. Looks kind of strange out in a field.

The post processing caught my eye, I like it for it demands our attention. Well composed and framed. Be careful with yellow, it tends to blow out but here it has a wonderful explosive feel that adds to the photograph. Very nice.

I like the addition of the turn signal, but it took me a while to identify it/get the orientation. Maybe if the image were not cropped quite so tightly, the sense of direction would have made more sense to me. Regardless, the message is clear that this vehicle was "well loved."

To my eyes it's a bit overcooked and too much wheel and not enough logo. Cropping is an artistic tool and I do feel that with a tighter crop this image would be much stronger.

Hi love the patina, the grunge but that round object in lower left steals part of the show.

This sad looking bloke looks like a few Brits I know. It has a lovely antique look about it and you have grunged it appropriately.

Your image made me smile because this is something that we all do...put money into a glass, bin, piggy bank. You do have some hot spots on the money (due to overexposure) but the photograph is full of delightful patterns making it visually attractive. AND the background does not take away but strengthens the image.

I agree with Vibeke. It looks over-sharpened to me too. The pixel grid is very obvious. It needs to be softened a bit.
