I've always wanted to capture an image of an old, rusted car. So, here it is!

Captured this image while driving through the back roads in Illinios.
Saturated, cropped, buzzed in PhotoShop.

Hey Mike, I second all of the above and more!

A great photographic shot by itself. The composition of the car in the frame shows it perfectly. Add the effect and it becomes another of what I've come to know as one of your trademark images. Perfect for Photogateway! (smile)

This is a great shot Mike, did you buzz it? It's very nice. #4822349

Yep (Greg), buzzed it a little. I figured you might like this image since because of the old abandoned car. :)
