A Classic Ride

I did a little playing around in Photoshop on this one.  It is a shot I took at a car show at the county fair.  Just felt like having some fun.   It still needs some work,  The back tire needs to be fixed and I need to take the reflection of the fairgrounds out of the side.  But here it is so far.

Gee, I don't know how you could have posted it only half done and in this condition.
Now if it was mine it would have been posted with "hey look what I've done , I'm very clever. By the way this is typical Aussie humour.
Seriously, I just love it as it is. I think you should leave in the reflection of the fairground unless you were trying to achieve a display case look. The black really makes it stand out.
Gail Wiley: What a lovely complement. Thanks Aussie. I am really glad you like it.
I wouldn't have noticed the reflection if you hadn't mentioned it! I agree with you about the back tire, though. When you fix that, you will have a beautiful, classic picture of a very classy car!
Gail Wiley: This was originally parked in the grass, thus the tire problem. This is one of my do it slow, do it right projects. Thanks for stoping by to look.

The tyre is easily fixed but the reflection will be harder. Having said that the reflection doesn't bother me at all and this has given me an idea for one of my car pictures. If it turns out anywhere near as well as this I will be delighted.
Gail Wiley: Thanks Bill, glad I could be an inspiration. I think I figured out how to deal with the reflection. Yes the tire is a no brainer. I do hope you post that photo with you finish it. I know it will be a winner.
