I think the editing adds so much to this beauty.

Sorry, forgot to finish that line. I was going to say that I probably would like the original better, too much editing for my taste. And seeing the original now, I thought it right, I like the original better.

Wow, the "Lord of the Woody" left a comment.
Forgive my poor English, I don't understand what it means. :P
Is this a sentence from some famous guy or book? Can someone explain it for me?

Great comic-book effect.

Very interesting processing. Nice.

I'd like to see the original image side by side with this. The processing distorts the perspective too much for me, but it is an interesting effect.

Interesting post processing. Topaz by chance? Seems to be the trend here lately. This one is one of those done right. Ive seen too many done wrong. 10 from me

I keep coming back to this photograph as this is the most beautiful pp I've ever seen on an old Beetle.

Sorry, but this is WAY overprocessed for my taste.

Excellent post capture treatment...

This is grotesquely overprocessed, it's absolutely ridiculous...

I like it! Don't ask me why :-)

This must be ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Deen, I recognise the car. Personally I think the post-processing is way over the top as I'm not a big fan of HDR, but the composition is strong, the subject very interesting and it meets the challenge more than adequately. Good luck.

Too extreme on the tonemapping. The car was already damaged, in my opinion could be toned down, as is too much hdr on it.
It is a great perspective, a very interesting subject, but the processing is too much.

seems way too over-processed to me.

I've seen this before... I suspect somebody is gonna cry foul here. :(

New processing and probably a new photo too though..

BTW: Not only does the bug not work anymore, personally the over-the-top HDR look doesn't work for me either.. Not that it's a bad image, I'm not going to kill you on the score.. Best of luck on keeping this one in the game.
