Definitely has a retro feel to it

Looks like this car is his pride and joy.

It's a beauty. You can really see the pride in his expression. Love the tones.

Choose the tone support the pic, nice 65's mood.
10/04/2007 08:16:44 AM
Love the toning!

The man looks either 1) proud that it's his vehicle or 2) wishes it was his. I like the composition and tonal values you chose. Bit of a hot spot by the sunglasses, but still a nice image.

what a fabulous retro feel to this image ... the processing is perfect!
10/03/2007 08:39:20 PM
If I did not read your title, I would not have thought that the main subject here is the car. I like the pose of your model and the light but all the hot spots are quite distracting.

very nice. I like his pose a lot and the light is great.

I love the feel of this, the mood is very laid back, and the sepia tones accentuates that. Good variety of tones, very focused, nicely cropped, great job!

love the nostalgic processing. good tones

A simple moment in time captured so perfectly you feel like you could be there, wonderful shot, bumping up to 10.

Cool shot. Your processing gives it a feel of an old time picture. Has a great feel to it.
10/02/2007 12:52:23 PM
Nice casual shot. There are some blown-out spots though.
10/02/2007 09:01:36 AM
I might be alone, but I like the way you took and processed this picture. I like it for the blown out parts on the car. This replicates perfectly picture taken in the 50s/60s. Toning of colors supports this style well.

What a cool guy. Nice lighting, too. The processing works really well. 8

Love the tones in this. It could be a photo from the 60's, great job.

If I don't look too hard, I think he looks like Billy Bob Thornton. Love the nostalgic appeal of the shot.
10/01/2007 07:25:03 AM
Nice emotion!

Really cool image - love the 'easy' feel it has going - awesome choice of hues too.
