    Red flyover

    Mixed rain and snow started just as the camera was put on the tripod. Did not want to risk damage to the gear so left after 2 shots. Good thing I did as the car was a bit way off and rain got much heavier.

    As always all constructive comment will be duly filed and encased in the grey matter.

    In pp desaturated all colours except red and added a tinge of sepia.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Al - quite a simple shot actually. 26mm, iso 100, f11, 8secs. As the left side was way too bright compared to the right, slapped on a gnd and turned the darker part towards the road. That was it.

    The rest is just pp.

    Only got 2 shots in - the first one was just bleh! Got lucky with the 2nd as a big truck drove past.

    For me, Bobo, you have too much dark area on the right and bottom which is contrasting too heavily with the lightness from the road.

    I think I would try cropping somewhere around the B of your name and a corresponding amount from the bottom, or if needed, change the aspect ratio slightly.

    I suspect that would create a better balance.
