The car looks great, but the background is reddish. Maybe color correct the background. You could try different background arraignments; blur, remove to black, put in a new scene, &c. Remove the people from the back window also if the background is changed. What model automobile is that?

Re: hi.. how can i improve this ?

Your blur focus does not make sence. to me. If your trying to make the picture look like a light bleed you succeeded. But you also need to make it look like film, grain and black specs need to be added.

And if your going for an old look, you need to trash the picture a bit with a a few wrinkels or trears.

The above poster pointed out the back window and the people in it are still sharp. Plus the inside of the car is also sharp when it shoud not be.

Hope it helps,

Re: hi.. how can i improve this ?

haha .. i was trying the effect of real lens blur (depth of field wid wide aperture) and focus on the vintage car.. i wasnt goin for an old photo look but more to a experimental reddish toned light source effect.. oh i did add some film grain also but maybe it wasnt enuff..

oh wat's black specs ? examples ? hmm ok i will blur out the back window abit and also the insides of the car.. will post a new one by tommorow.. tks for ur critiques.. pls be harsh.. i am all ears.. TKS !!!
