    SteveBee - Thanks for commenting. Sorry you didn't like it. My first try at using the darken sky tool - I need more practice.

Jade - Thanks - I hoped getting the fire engine in would add a little interest.

LaRee - That's what I thought :-)

Lo - merci

Ronoz - Thanks

Una - I understand what you are saying. Thanks for commenting.

    Ok, it matches the theme, but for me it doesn't tell a story, it is a good picture of a car that's been in an accident, but not more.

    This is one of those "right place at the right time" shots. It's colourful, crisp, and right on topic.

    Unfortunate for the owner, but a good find for you as this is definitely a wreck!

    A shot for firefighter fans. Nicely composed and framed and clipping the back of the truck confirms the car is the subject.

    Looks like an insurance adjuster photo -- just straight on and static. I can't say what I would have done to make the perspective or composition more interesting, but if I couldn't find a way I would've looked for another subject to shoot. The sky darkening looks unnatural, but that is really not the make or break aspect of the photo.

    raf - Thanks for your comment. I had the same worry. I didn't want to crop as I felt the fire engine gave interest to the wreck. Vignetting was the answer - I must learn how to do that!

    Yep it certainly is, hope the people were OK.

Some cropping or vignetting to concentrate us on the car may have helped here as it gets a little lost in the overall.
