    Exposure: 1.8 sec (9/5)
    Aperture: f/5
    Focal Length: 10.8 mm

    I've just started humming 'self preservation society' :D
    I like the selective colour too. Nice one!

    Really like this.

    I'm not usually a fan of selective colour - but in an image like this it seems to work.

    I like the stong shapes in the background, giving it a graphic quality. The red detail around frame doesn't do much for me, or the signature.

    Possibly my favourate so far though :smashin:

    "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!"

    This is great. I love how you've made it look like the car is leaping from one building edge to another. A contender for sure!

    BTW, I really like the frame...

    Thanks for the comments. :)

    I was unsure about the border at first but I think it takes your eye away from the large empty space on the right quite well.

    Great shot and processing - I was going to do a shot of the coach but could not find a suitable model (Elle Mcpherson applied but was rejected for being "uncoach like !)

    Well done.

    Love the shot but I think the red line in the border detracts too much, would have been better with a simple or no border IMO
