Classic car rally, Austin, Texas. Polariser used to control some of the reflections. I just love the colour and the graphic nature of this hood detail.

Nice shot G, this really brings back fond memories. It was my first car, a 57 Chevy. :)

Nice detail. Smooth lighting and tones. Border is distracting and too close to the subject of interest. The detail shows some lovely workmanship.

The details on those old american cars are just beatiful. Sometimes something like this can be more beatiful then the car itself.
Love the compostion of this, it looks like a spaceship that just came to a halt on a distant planet. Good capture of the chrome and surroundings. Excellent, 9.

Very nice, exquisite hue and saturation, great lighting on the reflective metal which can't have been easy. Absolutely no glare! Border works well. Nice composition, good crop. My favourite and highest scoring pic this challenge. 9

I took a shockingly similar shot that I nearly submitted! Same color of car, similar hood ornament, etc. Yours turned out quite nicely! I love the sharpness of this one.

Simple. I like it. Did you try shooting a little lower so you were aiming up at it more?
