I think I probably would too. But, assuming you have your own subjective concerns, would it be a wild card? And therefore would it be a creative photograph which you could contextualise or an illustration for the newspaper? I think for most it would be the latter. Joachim Brohm's is part of a series of bold colour colour pictures and very definitely not a news illustration. There is something ambiguous about it beyond the subject and it is largely to do with colour. It's a photograph about photography, as they say.

It would be difficult to not have colorful cars in a photograph back then.
That's very true. I think the bold primaries of cars in the 70s have a lot to do with the emergence of colour art photography, in connection with the New Topographics.
