    My eyes go first to the tree on the right, then to your car.

    It almost looks like your car is the secondary subject.

    something looks messed up just below the tree with the orange and red leaves. It's like there was some kind of lens flare or weirdness going on there.

    Maybe try darkening the area on the right so the focus is more on the car?

    I guess I do wish the car was ever so slightly larger in the frame.

    Aside from that, the image looks nice. Processing?

    I like it. Nice sky in the background too.

    I would have liked the car a little closer

    Some light HDR work in Photomatix and then some tweaking of contrast and a few other things in Lightroom.

    try flipping the image. i have a feeling you might like the results. it will make your eye much less likely to be pulled straight to the tree.

    the 135's front end looks like someone that drank one too many espresso shots and is trying not to geek out.

    Car is stock, aside from tint and different halo bulbs..

    Thinking about chipping it in a few months, but more than happy with the power it has now. :wiggle:

    7 Exposure bracket to start.. on a tripod obviously.. using a remote trigger to ensure absolutely no blur/shake.

    Light tweaking to your liking in photomatix..

    take in to lightroom, adjust levels some more, contrast, colors, a little sharpening..

    BAM SHAMWOW!
