pics of my 69 Impala

I haven't posted on here in awhile because I haven't really had anything to contribute. Any way I took some pics of my Impala and played around with them on my computer and thought they looked kinda cool. I'm even thinking about framing the red one and putting it up on the wall.

pics of my 69 Impala

Not trying to flame you but you asked. The base pictures you originally started with are not that great. It is therefore hard to modify those pictures and come up with great art. The backgrounded in both pictures is distracting and doesn't allow the eye to flow smoothly across the car. Your idea to tint the pics is good but you started with poor photos. Take some more pictures of the Impala and try to fill the frame with the car and keep out as much of the background as you can. As well use a telephoto lens if you have one as it will make the background go out of focus. If you want to use the wide angle lens you will have to place the car were there is virtually nothing in the background. Keep working with the placement of your car and use various lenses and angles for your images. Try laying on the ground or climbing on a stepladder to eliminate background clutter. Good luck and keep on developing your style.

right on, thanks for the tips - and don't you worry about my little ol feelings, I just appreciate the feedback. I know I gotta work on it. I rushed these pics because it was getting dark. Also, I didn't really have a good place to take em without getting bad background clutter. (Trash can!!). These are the first pictures I've taken of my car, so next time I will definitely be putting more time into it. thanks again

The last pic isn't too bad but the glare from the license plate really distracts.

So, do you like cover it up when you are driving down the road also? I just don't understand the concept of that. Do you think they are going to ssteal it if they see your plate online but not steal it if they see it in person? And do you realize how many times your ride is caught on camera every time you drive it? Not nitpicking but if you post a pic of your ride you need to turn off the floodlight on the front bumper.

Not a hater. Just answering what you asked for. I'd like to see a pic without all the glitz and glamour added. And without the 500w halogen floodlight on the front bumper
