This one is from my last trip to Pushkar/Ajmer. Front wheel alloys have a bit of "holi" colour on them!

Very distracting.
Also the jagged gap between the bonnet and the side panel over the front-left wheel is another distraction. This has happened because of how you resized the pic (rather - what program you used). Use something more advanced which uses bicubic resampling - and use it on the ORIGINAL pic and the gap wont look so jagged.

Other than that, i like the composition - and i think that with some post-processing this image would be a lot better.

ps - i would also crop a bit off the bottom of the photo.

Just played with it for a few minutes in photoshop to give you an idea of the potential of some post-processing.
I did a very rough job, and the JPEG artifacts statred becoming a problem (i can only imagine that the TBHP image compression is going to add to that!) >

Default Location revisited

Had posted a snap from the same location some time back. On my trip to Kerala last week, visited the same spot for another round of snaps.

Here is one from the current lot.

My personal opinion on a few of the latest photos :

Nice shot. If you had taken it from a slightly higher angle it would remove the underside of the car from view.

That sky... i'm assuming you applied a gradient... i dont quite like the colors. It makes the picture look a little "cheap" for some reason IMO.

Cropped a little tight on the left.
If you had turned the wheel of the car it might have added a more dynamic flavour to the image?

Nice shots, great angles, but in the second one, the reflection on the front bumper is a bit distracting, and the "TAVAR" in the background is.... lets just say, visually offensive

Beauty!!! Wish it didnt have that little white patch below the GLS badge... and maybe a numberplate would help? Not sure about that.

So strange to see the same thing again!
The angle on the car is better, but the shot as a whole is more zoomed out / far removed.

Once again, those are my un-expert opinions only!
