The whole image. Just over cooked with HDR.

Yeah I agree with Fricks, It's a nice image with a composition that works but i'd say the HDR effect should be pulled back 25% at the minimum. This seems to be taken past the 'heavy' HDR/Painterly feel even. Try taking it back a little bit and updating, looking forward to seeing the results.

Yep, agree. Overcooked. Don't mean this to sound as harsh as it does, but the first thought that came to mind was it makes an otherwise beautiful machine look grungy and ugly.

Plus, hard to tell at this size but in the tree at the upper left it looks like some double imagery. Either that or radical over-sharpening. Also, what's with the reflection of the sky (clouds) on the concrete?

It is pretty intense. But each to their own. The only comment I have is the colour of the sky in the passenger side windows. It is a lot lighter than the rest of the sky. And something similar is happening in the tree just above the car. I see a rainbow in the smaller branches.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

I agree with what the others have said and would add that it looks like it could use some better image alignment. It is most apparent to me on the small details in the concrete lower right.

definitely some weird stuff going on in the concrete. If you like the processing then that is what matters most but for my taste it is over done. You might want to clone your reflection out of the bumper too.

Here's a couple I took that I think might be more along the lines of what you are going for. Still not what I would call realistic though.....Also excuse the black background, it was a rush job.:D
