    Firstly it's a nice sharp capture and timed well to get the cart airborne. I like how you've considered the composition to include the distance board. For me though I'd prefer it if the cart was larger in the screen as it looks a bit lost.

    As far as PP is concerned I don't think it need a lot to be honest, it's vibrant enough. I might have been tempted to add a bit of sharpening, and maybe seen what a bit of clarity boost might have done to see if it might pop more.

    Maybe a slightly tigher crop of the right hand side? Apart from that; all good.

    If it were me I would crop right down on the car and crowd on the left and cut out the board. I appreciate the board is interesting, but the flying car is the action and it's drowned by the big circle at the moment.
    I might even try a portrait crop on the car to emphasise the height.
    I appreciate this is a matter of taste not fact but you asked what we would do ;)
    It's a great capture and very sharp.
