Entry 4 of 25
   
 
Racing in the streets / Bruce Springsteen       ©2009 henriksson
Panasonic DMC-FZ50       4th place, 103 points
1/320s, f5.6, ISO 100, 35mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: hue / saturation, intensity / contrast       Extra Info: I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor
She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the Seven-Eleven store
Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he rides with me from town to town
We only run for the money got no strings attached
We shut `em up and then we shut `em down

    Right on theme, nice subject for the song, even with the 396 :-)
Also like a lot the PP you've done, the agressive B&W conversion works very well. Along with a nice angle of view to add "muscle" to the car... a very strong image, my #3 and I bet will finish among T5 at least, well done!!

    The only question I have is what year, 69 I'm guessing? Great shot, I like the low angle and high contrast. In my TT.

    A perfect picture for the song, and in my TF.

    Wow! Very nice shot - and treatment.
This style and this heavy PP. I would bet that this comes from Sweden - I'm sorry if I'm wrong.
Very well done... and great music.

    I am going to be super harsh and suggest that you could get an even better match pic to song with a grainer/grittier PP attempt. Same harsh light, but a little bit of 60s grain in the shot. Having said that there is nothing else for me to critique and I could very well be wrong about it making it better.

The harsh, contrasty b&w, the angle of view, the tight composition all work beautifully. Perfect link between pic and song. My clear #1.

    Well this car fits the song down to a T and on top of that I like the processing and angle of the shot.

    Beautiful image, great match to a song. Tough to go original with an auto image but this is classically done.

    Car pics usually do nothing for me but I really like what you've done with this image. The composition and the starkness of the black and white combine to make this very striking indeed. You've even got the 396, as in the song lyrics. Very well done!

    Excellent! I think this will do very well in the votes.

    adding this one to my TT, fits the theme perfectly. Reaaly like the angle taken of the camero in photo, also how background was darkened to hi-lite the car. Beautiful entry.
