Deb Koskovich August 10, 2008

This is absolutely awesome, Colleen. Right into my faves. Love the uniqueness of this car! I too find the wide angle lens to be indispensable at crowded car shows. I didn't have it at the last show I went to and I was kicking myself all day for it. #6294947

Jeana Clark August 10, 2008

Fantastic POV and effects Colleen!!

Great image, Colleen. The effects and wide angle create a work of art. Well done. #6296859

Debby #6296989

Colleen Farrell August 10, 2008

Thanks very much for the great comments, Arlene, Tammy, Karen, Kate and Debby!

Arlene, it's the DOA ("Dead on Arrival") that he was referring to. I guess the DMV thought it was in too poor taste to use--maybe because so many people are killed in car accidents. #6297051

Coleen- Good day my friend. OHHHHHH what a bad boy we got here. This was when cars were weighed by the ton. They were heavy and so smooooooth riding. I think the inconvenience of taking the shot worked out well for you. I agree that the staight on shot and the width of the front end give the car an even more go out of my way look. That skull with the red eyes is such a sweet touch. I love old car pictures and you have done such excellent work with this one. composition, POV, Colors, Lighting, clarity, and amazing details make for a fabulous out of the oldes picture.
Incredible work
Have a great day, take care, please be safe. #6305704

Nash Airflyte Ambassador Super.
I think this is a 1949 model. It's an enormous car.
The owner said he had to fight the DMV for years
to be able to keep his license plate.
