People sure go ga-ga for the slick, shiny new paint jobs but there is a certain allure for a properly aged paint-scheme. I think this has a certain appeal. Certainly is easier to image, none of those pesky reflections. The suicide doors take the cake though. Too cool.

Thanks BenJammin and sugarzebra. Actually I missed on the exposure just a little bit right out of camera. As usual with a (sort of) black vehicle, the backround was a little washed out. Jiggled a little with the levels. Think I may have went a bit far as the backround is a little too alive but the car is in the right place. Someday I will learn to use post properly.

Good shot.

Actually I missed on the exposure just a little bit right out of camera.

...the backround is a little too alive

Some of that could be cropped out. Got PS? You can level out the exposure using a selection & a Layer mask. See post #9; PS Elements in Post # 14
