Too much of 1 affect going on in each picture.
Cars looks sweet but pictures are taking away quality IMO.

Why'd you murder these shots with those filters? Your composition looks pretty good, but those filters are gawdy imo... post originals?

Agree on the over-processing. A little too much. #1 and #4 would be cool but it's annoying to see the wheat, grass, lens flare or whatever that is blocking part of the car. Also, what is picture #9 supposed to be?

I am seeing some weird aliases,or artifacts, right over the license plates.

I must say I don't believe I have seen a coupe in Fern Green.
Pretty Nice!

That is fern green correct?
Or is that a filter too?

I agree with you, but your signature picture really isn't really any better.

Wow, not the commentary I was expecting! As many of you have said, I know the details on the car are not very visible, but that was not my concern. I wasn't trying to highlight the car's details- I wanted to take shot of the car in a somewhat original setting with interesting composition (hence the out-of-focus grass and trees taking up space in front of the car). The lens flare is also there deliberately as I was trying to go for that sun-kissed look- I think I accomplished that rather well! Finally, I went ape-shet with the filters because the colors are pretty Picassa's "Cinemascope" effect also adds a little film grain which further detracts from the image "quality."

Overall, I agree that these are bad photos as far as they document the car's curves and features. What do we think about them as photos per se?

I censored the licence plate numbers. Can't hurt, right?
And yes, she's a fern green coupe

As I said before, your composition isn't the problem, the filters are. They don't "add" to the image, they take away from it. I still think you should post the original pics...

(Please pardon my auto-correct)

Based on the username, I was expecting photos from a barren, Russian tundra lacking in colors, but got quite the opposite.
