I like it but it would look good with mud down it for more earth tones and plus it shows what these cars are built for !!!! but nice shot

I like the tone but too centred for me.

I love it.

For this type of car this setting is perfect.

I like it, especially the setting. But I agree, with the desaturation and all the dirt around in the frame, it would be better to go get this thing muddy from roof to rocker and shoot it again!

Very nice. I do like the idea of a nasty dirty car though. I bet both would be nice. Great shot.

Because of the tree, I don't mind the centered framing, except that I don't think all that gravel helps the shot & I'd crop most of it out.

I like it a lot. You broke a few "rules" but as Frank said, the tree helps compensate for the centering of the car and I actually like the extra gravel in the bottom portion of the picture. This really has a "mood" to it - dark, foreboding, grim, and very "earthy". Great shot!
