    Done with grocery shopping, I got back in the car and looked left as I put my seatbelt on. Reflected in the door handle of the car next to me were a couple of palm trees, bright and clear in the shiny silver:

    Of course all I had was an iPhone, so I grabbed a few frames, trying to duplicate my original eyeline. A bit of cropping and other work in post-processing and we have a nice California-iconic image:

    I thought that in the appraisal gallery it was up to the appraisors to say "nice".
    It is rather nice but I would have chosen a different crop. Say halfway between where you have cropped and the horizontal trim on the door.
    Very well spotted!

    Thanks for your feedback! Feel free to recrop the original so I can see exactly what you mean.

    If you mean keeping more on the bottom, my intention was to crop out my own reflection (and the roofline of the car behind me) ;-)

    I like the letterbox, but it could be a lot brighter:

    That scratch on the car needs a bit of tlc in photoshop. Until thats gone nothing else matters for me.
