    Guitar strap (taken with my old Sony HX-9 prosumer, so quality is not as good as my D80)

    The Fog. It's been like this for three days now, can barely see ground from my window and it's only the eighth floor. No wonder I feel a bit down :D

    I really like that! Just that, pity about that bit of red at the back though. that other car. IMO it distracts.

    I did wonder about that when I took it - I think I probably took four or five shots of it, and I thought having the colour in the background might make the picture look a bit more dynamic, as otherwise it's a dark blue car and a dark sky. But I do see your point; maybe I should have de-saturated the red a little.

    yeah I see what you mean too. without the red it might have been a bit too boring. maybe if there was some red somewhere on the bonnet that might have been nice but, oh well.

    I think that the whole Vangard emblem is enough of a focal point, to me it looks better even if the other car was a less noticeable color:

    Wow, thanks Fisher! It's definitely interesting with a darker object there. I think I'd still be tempted to knock down its saturation, purely to put it more firmly in the background - although maybe my eye is drawn to it not because it's overbearing, but because it's what I'm focussing on. Ahhhh!

    Yeah, I'm having that problem now as well :lol:

    Try showing mine to someone who hasn't seen the original, we need an unbiased eye!

    The logo is the focal point to the unacquainted. But a mild grey would be better, the black is very heavy...not eye-catching, but when you look around the photo, it looks too hard nonetheless.
