Thanks for visiting my gallery.
When I looked at yours, this one grabbed my attention immediately. You don't often see cars like this in Melbourne any more. It's hard to imagine how it could still be working, but the tyres are all pumped up. Capturing it on a slight angle, closely cropped, is a good idea. You could probably liven the photo up a bit with a bit more saturation and contrast - just a little. I hope you are enjoying your photoshop course!

This is in beautiful condition compared to the Ford Falcon that coughed its way past me the other day. As you say, I know of a few families down the villa that would love to have seomthing like this. A really nice touch in your photo is the nose of a much more modern, much better conditioned car sneaking in to the frame from the left - a kind of look at me.
regards and thanks, Iain.

You had chosen an askew angel to show this beautiful car / or used to be... Gus.
As a car fan, pitty to see such degenerated piece after so many years of service.
Maybee in a small amount of money can be renovated and shine again...

Me gusta este tipo de fotos, que muestran una faceta de la vida cotidiana. El auto muestra con claridad las huellas de los años y los kilómetros recorridos. Buena foto.

When I see to this old rusty construction I think about the first day of the car, and his owners were full of joy and fun. Perhaps their children were happy... A car's life is very shot too. What is a model and brand?
Best wishes from Russia!
