Nicely done - but I don't see you in the bumper - why?
Thanks for sharing.

Strange, but I just don't get a sense of attraction to it. I suspect that the background may be blending to the body of the car a bit much detracting from what could be a great shot. I am not sure you could have relocated the car, but could you have shot from a different angle?

Well done, and welcome to Pentaxforums.

If I wanted to quibble about the background, I'd mention the white vertical object (drain pipe?).

I, too, am curious about how you managed to avoid having yourself reflected in the bumper.

I hope to see more of your photos — automotive and other.

Best wishes.

Thank you the critiques. So, I made this photo on a photo festival and was many people there. And, I am a beginer (yet) therefore I can't found the good angles and compositions.
The background was a house and the vertical object is the edge of wall.
It's new for me that I have to reflected in the bumper.
Thank you the critiques ones more, I learned a lot of from the it.
