Chevy Lady
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM Camera: Pentax K3 Photo Location: Wheatridge, CO ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/80s Aperture: F5.6 

I don't do a whole lot of macro photography, but sometimes funny things catch my eye. Occasionally you catch something out of the ordinary at car shows like this 4'8 Chevy Fleetmaster sedan with a modified grill ornament. I can't remember for the life of me what car this voluptuous figurine originally came from.
What would you do differently?

Beautiful capture

Talking about taste, I feel this photo might get a bit more interesting playing with the colors, yellow/blue is a good combination, maybe a bit of contrast and saturation might make the landscape more tasty, also, did you try BW? Metal looks amazing in bw

Have a nice day!

The stock image had a very strong blue cast from the car and the overcast sky. I took the tiny bit of sunlight that was warming the metal and enhanced it bringing the temperature up considerably. Some sharpening and contrast was added. I did try a BW version, but I feel like the warmth gives it a lot more pop and emotional response.
