This is what our clubs quarterly challenge is. We are allowed two enteries, and these are my two.

Cloned out my legs from the bumper. :D It was mentioned to me somewhere else.

I'd add some grain to the first one and vignette the second one.

They have enough grain, both were shot with the E-10. LOL

John, I like both. (You're making this difficult.) I think my choice would be the Ladies in their period style clothing, and that spinning wheel is the clincher.

John,

I think both work really well. :)


Now these are just suggestions, but I would think a tin type edge to the first shot might work as well.

I'd also clone out the reflection of the person in the right side of the bumper in the second shot.

:D

I agree on cloning out the bumber reflections, also there are legs in the right edge of the image. Also agree on the vignette, and a touch of grain could add more character and age to the shots.
