You got a good angle on this, Stuart. The whole idea of a solid steel car with lots of real chrome comes across nicely here. I know the license says 1953 but I think this is probably a 1957 or 1958 model.

An evil beast, looks like it is about to take a chunk out of me, very anthropomorphic. Wonderful sharpness and exposure, the soft light a function of the overcast rain clouds???... the car is wet. It appears you eliminated a very busy background and presented us only the stone and black for a clean, simplistic image. There is a smudge of red still remaining in the upper right corner. Great camera angle and use of the wide angle lens. My only suggestion is the cropping of the left, right and bottom border is too tight, this beast needs room to breathe... maybe 2X - 3X the amount of space between the car and the borders. Very nice image. I think this is a 1953 Buick Roadmaster. > TED

What lens was used out of curiosity and at what focal length?
