Funny how your photo looks more realistic than the Alfa one, well done. It’s a UK rather than an Irish plate on the Alfa, but not unusual to see a UK car in Dublin I guess. Still looks oddly shrunken to me.
the Alfa is stunning but I still like the black on black. A bit "dark". An alley you would not to be lost in after dark.
Second look: the Alfa competes with and dominates the photo. The black '02 against the black gates pulls it all together, centers the viewer on the gold lettering with the "gold" lines acting like a pointer.
Thanks. It might have been the colors, or the pints, that inspired me...
The original photo had a red Alfa in it. I thought I had a similar low angle shot of my car, but mine was from the opposite side and from a tad higher. So I converted to RHD (it being appropriate to the locale) and brought my car a bit more forward (lower in the shot) to compensate. I used a machine learning filter to color correct my pic to fit the image’s palette. Then just normal photo editing fun.
