Gotta love New England with all those damn telephone poles.

I like the selective use of color, though. Nicely done.

It's too square, vignetting is circular

yea i see what you guys are talking about....i wanted to draw more attention to the cars than the background.....maybe i should just try out the lens correction filter in CS4 instead to get a better vignetting.

vig effect is supposed to be circular. i believe it first appear due to the lens itself at low f stops and then people started getting creative with using lens hoods and now photoshop....

i don't care for the coloration of the pics, but the vignette in the second one is nicely done.

personally, I use Tiffen DFX for vignetting, and it also helps improve pictures that are just lacking.

I would stick with the lens correction filter.. the square looks a little cheesy.
