Mercury Gas Door Detail

Classic car on the street.  I'm guessing a 50s era Mercury sedan.  Interesting gas door detail.

I'm rusty on post processing.  (Was it ever a strength?)  So, somehow I ended up with details of the reflections in the body color standing out more than I intended.

Oh well.  Try again tomorrow.

Hippy Volkswagen Bus

I have been thinking a lot about photo composition and what good elements of it are.

Here is a photo I liked recently of an old, painted VW bus.

To me, the red slash leads the eye to the lights, then the line of the hatch further directs the eye down and the to yellow bumper line directs you to the smashed part.  I don't very much like having the hatch line there the longer I look at it.

In spite of straightening the photo in processing, I feel unsettled about how it looks like the top leans in and somehow the piece still looks crooked.

Try again tomorrow.
