[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been to a business trip to the Faroe Islands. I was travelling around the island, and for that purpose I had to rent a car. I have two boys at home, and the most interesting part for them is to know what car I had..."Remember to take a picture of your car....." Well, I donīt care so much about the car, but more about the beautiful nature up there, so why not combine the two things...Well, here it is.
I have ajusted the colours and saturation in the PS.

I love the composition, the contrasting colours and textures of the car against the landscape and depth of field that has been achieved to keep everything in focus.

You might want to try the following on your next trip. Put the camera on the dashboard pointing out of the front windscreen (perhaps at 45 degrees to maximise the effect). Set the camera to take a long exposure of around 20-30 seconds. Then push the car a couple of feet forward (using the engine causes too much vibration and ruins the picture). You should now have a shot similar to the 'speeding car' shots you get in the magazine :-)

Nice shot of the headlight, I'm a fan of these shots. The scenery in the background is nice to look at too.

You should have focused on the landscape which seems to be beautiful instead of this car that is only a car !
Going to Faroe islands to show us your car, what a pity !
Hope you have other shots of your trip there.

my eye seems distracted to opposite ends of the photo. i want to look at the car but i also want to look at the picturesque green hillside. perhaps you could have taken a picture with the car more centered with green hills as a backdrop. otherwise i find the photo very crisp and sharp in focus and the colors are clean.
