    Well, seems like you are the one who is taking out classic masterpieces slowly from those photo boxes in your safe :) I love this extreme composition. Choice of colors helps add 3D effect to this Chevy also. Very dynamic image! Perfect for storyboard composition.

I'm walking through your gallery, realizing that I've been there before- exceptional gallery of images!

I enjoyed looking thru your gallery, Steven. This is one of my favorites. It has great POV, lines, colors and effects. Even the architecture in the bg fits the 50's theme. A perfect capture of this Classic!

Steven - so glad you dropped a line on my gallery-- else I would probably not have seen yours. '57 Chevy is the ONLY car for me. Stunning shot -- the sky caps it all. And, also your fractal hit me right off. My fractal generator is so old -- it's for DOS!!!! Will have to update soon!
