A bit normal using the spot focus since I followed the car using his helmet (*_^).

Here I cropped a bit the image since I rotated the image 3 degrees anti-clockwise.

Just played a bit with shadows & highlights with Photoshop to reveal more details of her hair mainly.

After correcting the tilted horizon ( 4 Degrees anti-clockwise ), I had no choice to crop your image. So I opted for a Polaroid style format with the white frame, and added a title using the Papyrus format (^_*).

A tad of saturation. Nothing else.
Changes made using Photofiltre.

Cheers!
Robert

PS. I ran a vertical through the right pyramid in getting equidistant triangles to get the 4 Degrees correction.

To give more attention to the young subject and tenderness of her pose, I opted to give less importance on the fabric. But I think the image is more balanced this way, with the two different fabrics.

I did not enlarge the shot to loose quality of your image. But you may do it wuth your original.

Hope you will like this suggestion.
Regards,
Robert

Just to demonstrate my comment.

Of course using your original shot would make it more accurate and sharp since I enlarged the cropped photo. But that is the idea (^_*).

Hope you will like the suggestion.

Great shot ain any case,
Robert

Since I was following the car , with the spot focus on drivers helmet, at 300 mm, it was difficult to get the full car. From this angle I could not . I did although the shots before. But here the idea was to get the drivers position vs the front wheels. At the same time, I got rid of the alsphalt at the top and bottom.

Many programs are available.

He I used Neat Image to get rid odf some. Ideally it is better to work with the original size. But still it gives you an idea.

Link is on my intro page if you wish to get the free program.

As the landscape was shot at sunset, the colors setting into darkness, I opted for the black frame. A thin 2 pixel line added to separate the photo from the frame.
Nothing changed to the photo since I love it the way it is.
Cheers!
