Not expecting much from this....

Taken about 50 Metres from where I shot my last Free Study Challenge entry - I don't get out much!

Edit: A bit of sharpening and Neat Image, a crop, some increase in the red saturation, desaturation of other colours. I then needed to do some selective desaturation on the branch that extends into the tail lights.

I cloned out two pieces of litter too, one on each side of the road.

On some monitors I was able to see some banding - I upped the exposure in software to try and eliminate that; if anyone sees any banding in the fog in this image then please let me know.

Love the red streak juxtaposed with the frosty vegitation. Nicely done.

A good and original image but I think a slightly faster shutter with some semblance of the vehicle would be better for me.

Feels so cold! Like the blown out mist and the high key look. An 8.

I like the mix of the timeless and the modern. That swoosh of orange against the grays is realy pretty. I might've cropped off part of the area up top and made it rectangular instead of square.
