I like the selective coloring and the darkened areas in the bottom corners. The top left corner is very bright. I probably would have taaken the darkened corners all the way around. I realize the need to change the license plate, but the dark splotch bothers me.
Overall, a neat picture.

My favorite so far. I love the contrast between the black and white and the car.

Lovely. Perhaps a little overprocessed, but it works well here. Excellent depth although it kind of looks like the couple is facing a fake backdrop. Like the selective desaturation.

GREAT photo..!!! I hate when dealer's ruin cars by putting decals on the back - I would have edited that out. And it would have been awesome if the license plate had a catchy one-word rather than the blur. I know that would be tough with tight challenge timelines...

I love this. The blurred license plate draws my eye to that part of the photo(though I realize that you could not show the number in the picture) Maybe cloning it to a solid plate would reduce the distraction. Beautiful shot!

I love the editing work, specifically the vignetting and the selective softening. I love the way the cans add the feel of motion, you having caught a few in mid-bounce.
I am having trouble wit the purpose behind the selective desat... it seems to bring attention to the car, and take attention away from the bride & groom, the real subjects.

Great photo, wonderful take on the challenge, and one of the rare times selective desat. just works perfectly. 10!

Wow ! I really like this a lot , it has so much character and the selective desat works to its advantage. Except for the branch detracting and also the smudge on the number plate, this shot is perfect. Clone them out and this is one for the wall ! Well done !

The car seems to be the subject more than the couple.

Nice selective desat. The image is very crisp and fits the challenge very well. The blurred license plate is distracting and I can't help but wonder if there was a better way to shoot this and not give away the license plate.

I'm pretty much over the single sat, but this really works. Spot on clarity helps alot. I like the placement of the couple in the shot - like they are really going somewhere. Good composition. I think a simple black frame would serve you well here although the lack of one isn't a detriment. Thanks for a nice image amidst so many mundane!!!.

One of my favorites in this challenge so far. Hope it does well for you. Love the powerful red car against the black and white.
