Default Washed in the Rain

Yesterday I had planned to wash the car, realign the bumper, clean up under the hood, and a few other minor things....but I had to take my brother to a concert between 10 & 11:00 (he plays Violin) so that basicaly took the morning away, so then i come home and it starts to sprinkle, and I decided, w/e i'll just wash the car, so i did, and i took the Licence tag holder off and cleaned up behind that a little bit and took some pics before i put it back on... it was raining so of course there were clouds, so alot of the pics came out dark-ish or grey, so when i was resizing them i lightend the ones that needed it...i also managed to strain a muscle in my neck...it hurts to turn my head right...i think it happend when I was crouching under the bumper to see what size socket i needed to take the Plates off...

dont mind the water drops, i would have dried it but seeing how it was raining off and on all day...




This is about as clean as i got it, keep in mind that there was proably a few years worth of dirt and a few leaves in there...idk how the leaves mandaged to get behind that...






This made me a bit more upset too...the hose took a big chip of paint off from both sides...the paint was already peeling but not this noticable...


this side pissed me off more, cuz instead of chiping off longways it chiped off towards the lights...




I love this rim, it stays the cleanest...








For desktop/wallpaper purposes I edited out the holes from the licence plate holder on some of the pics














I love my badges








The key here is seeing the reflection










Thats it...how'd they turn out?

You've got some nice shots in there. They could all use all little levels adjustment & some sharpening. I'll post a couple examples if you'd like to see the difference.
