thanks for you input, though.
and santi, the white (its actually baby green) car is not cut out of the first image ... its just a tight crop.
I didn't do anything with the lighting, all i did was adjust the WB. Again, the vignetting simulates light fall off (simulating light source coming from your camera directly and not having enough power to light the entire frame. IMO the vignetting does not work with the light situation. But if it floats your boat, by all means
im well aware what vignetting is.
i shoot wide open, 90% of the time. you can either enhance the vignetting effect, or try and get rid of it. in some cases its not that easy, and others it also adds to the mood of a photo. vignetting is NOT, by any means, a bad thing.
from the looks of you flickr, we shoot completely different styles, so i can understand why your initial reaction was to correct the white balance. and thanks for that, but i just prefer my images to look a certain way
oh and, critique away...
its the only way we become better photographers. in every case, a 2nd set of eyes is always useful
