Your subject is fantastic, but I wonder if you could have done something more interesting with the composition/background. I guess the car isn't yours, so you didn't have much choice re location and lighting...... How about offering the owner a great photo in return for him/her posing the car for you?

Classic. The saturation on the truck is great.

Nice selective desat, really brings out that deep cherry red colour. I would have tried to go with a shallowed DOF on this one if I were you. The red is a little distracting. G'luck with this shiny red monster ;)

Was this taken during the challenge dates or in the 1950's?? Seriously, love the use of selective desat. I like the little bits of the background that also retained their color. Beautiful truck and an image that surely meets the challenge.

Nice shot, I only wish that it wasn't partially in the shade.

Very sharp. I like the desaturation you have done here. It really helps accent the subject.

the truck is sweet! maybe desat all but the truck, i think selective desat would work well here. also I think a different angle or even closer up would look good.

I agree-------- beautiful! I'm a huge car/motorcycle buff, and never miss a rally if I can help it. This looks like a great get together. Love the color treatment here.
