Actually, it crashed heavily the moment later and damadged its hind quarters so badly that it had to be carried off the pitch with a trucklift , LOL...
It was woefully dull so you probably did not like the layer mask edges poking out at the rooftops-neither did I. Screen to the foreground, brightness, contrast, some curves and lots of saturation for heavy impact.

Well technically I've already left you a message...I really don't know what else to say. I'm pretty sure this was just a snap shot...you had the settings down and were just clicking away. It looks great...the only thing I can say is that the neon green on the front of the truck looks like it has be brought to it's limit...maybe if you stood down a bit from going that far...but just nit-picking. Like I said, for what this is all about...it's great.

definitely publishable image, but your processing could use some work. the border is a no-no, and the selective editing gives the image a real cut-and-paste feel. on the other hand, i've seen a lot worse than this printed in fairly large papers.

The green grass appears to be glowing from what looks to be abit of over saturation, but I like the stop action of the Swamp Thing

I saw this one on the first day in the thumbnails...and even though I didn't open it up...(I didn't have time) I did sit there for a while just looking at it..! Just perfect timing...fantastic.

Like this very much, fits the challenge 100 percent. Caught the vehicle at the correct moment. Seems a little, only a little, on the bright side to me but nothing else I would change.

Something in the colors almost makes the truck look added to the picture in post-processing.
