"Trampled Underfoot"

Greased and slicked down fine, groovy leather trim
I like the way you hold the road, mama, it ain't no sin

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Trouble-free transmission, helps your oil's flow
Mama, let me pump your gas, mama, let me do it all

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Dig that heavy metal underneath your hood
Baby, I could work all night, believe I've got the perfect tools

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

A model built for comfort, really built with style
Specialist tradition, mama, let me feast my eyes

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Factory air-conditioned, heat begins to rise
Guaranteed to run for hours, mama it's a perfect size

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Groovin' on the freeway, gauge is on the red
Gun down on my gasoline, I believe I'm gonna crack a head.

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]
I can't stop talkin' about...

Come to me for service every hundred miles
Baby, let me check your points, fix your overdrive

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Fully automatic, comes in any size
Makes me wonder what I did, before we synchronized

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Feather-light suspension, coils just couldn't hold
I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors

Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

Oh, I can't stop talkin' about love.

MMM, I like it, but the colors are to vibrant for me. It looks like you put some effect on it that made every single thing stand out.

cool hdr shot. The picture is kind of centered though which takes a bit away from it. Nice job overall. 6

Cool shot and processing works well here to evoke the feeling of Led Zep and the '70s for me. Nice job.

An interesting PoV, and HDR technique.

Very nice scene...fantastic subject for a variety of things, absolutely. While I like the setting, the end result from post-processing seems a bit over the top (over worked). JMO of course. :-) Good luck.

Nice perspective used and I like the edgy PP, adds to the feel of the shot.

Feels like a cool drawing from the 60s. Dig the glow around the car.

That is just fantastic. The colors of the the sky, car and brush are fabulous.

Great color and composition. The bush behind the car along the right edge of the photo is a little too bright, keeps drawing my eye, but otherwise a nicely done photo.

Not sure if you were trying to achieve the halo effect on purpose, and it is a bit distracting, but the contrast and colors of your image have such a great impact on the age of the car, and the desolate surroundings.

It might need just a bit more relevance between the lyric you chose to the mood you've created in the image, but overall, this really works for me! 7
