Challenge: 1970s (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Pentax Optio 550
Location: Negril, Jamaica
Date: Feb 19, 2005
Galleries: Black and White, Rural
Date Uploaded: Feb 22, 2005

I was on vacation in Jamaica when the challenge was announced. As I was walking down the road just taking some random pictures, my husband said to me "uh you better turn around and look at what's coming". I did, saw this raised my camera and snapped this shot. I got one shot, this one. Luckily nothing was coming the other way! I had taken other pictures for this challenge, but when I got home and saw this, I knew this would be the one I would enter. I think everybody I know had one of these beauties, it was my first car in '73 and I have it's much older fancier cousin now.

I like the grainy look. If I didn't know any better I would think this was taken in the 70's.

I know what kind of photo you were going for, few things might help..exposure and level your photo seems a little unlevel to me. The houses seem to run up and the ground looks flat. Just my thoughts

Nice documentary feel, as if actually taken in the 70's.

oh yeah we all are man......nothing ever dies in a bug and if it does we fix it and keep going.....

looks like a well main tained 1971 any way great shot love the grain and the aged affect could have done it any better.

This is a good shot. Love the grain, very retro..maybe more 50's than 70's with the black and white..but whatever, good work (it's a bit tilted though).7

the houses in the background are a little too distracting, I think all of the noise really adds a lot to the picture. The only thing I would do different is to make the car stand out more, all the other stuff around it (trees and houses) are a little distracting.

Nice! Love the tones and offset subject, the only "bug" I could find to shoot was a small toy one so I didn't do it. Good job

Nicely processed. I would like it a little more if the horizon was level and the car was a little farther into the frame. Beats the heck out of all the pictures of vinyl cover art :-) (7)

not enough of the subject. 5

maybe it's just personal preferrence but i think the bug would have more emphasis if it was closer to the rule of thirds verticals. like about where that stop sign is.

Well done. I'm assuming the grain is intentional.

Good one. Really looks like it comes out of the seventies.
The horizon should be level though.

The tone (greyness) really makes this picture.

Looks like it was taken in the 70's. Nice job editing it.

Great car, love the grain.

I like the b/w choice here, fits the challenge as well as suits this image perfectly. Do you think that the image could have been rotated right by 1 deg? Those houses look crooked.
