My ever willing assistant, Natalie.

The smoke is fake.
The flat is fake
That other car was MUCH farther away.

[Oct. 23rd, 2017 08:21:40 PM]

I gave this poor woman a blown gasket, a flat tire, and an empty gas tank. Total breakdown.

Unfortunately, her car has really narrow sidewalls, so it's not very obviously flat. But when I showed her the photo, she went out to check her tires, because SHE could tell it was "flat" in the picture.

So happy this resonated so well with everyone. I really was going for a "rock and roll" look.

21.gif Pixelstate has a great eye because that's exactly what I did with the smoke. I fiddled with it to make it look less "mirrored" but missed the bit that clearly was.

Sizzling image that pounds out rock and roll fantasy. Wonderfully set up and achieved. A ribbon winner for sure.

"Smoke coming from the engine. Better grab the gas can." LOL
Still a good image and worth a 7. :)

I don't think the flames were absolutely (even) necessary. With that said, I like the elements and the composition. Fits the title/song. My top pick.

Top quality Entry. Should make the Top 3 IMO.

This has a lot of impact and you spent some time with concept and execution. Processing is not over-done. I'm going to be really picky here an point out the apparent mirroring in the 'steam' for some reason this caught my attention.

Wow, great picture. Nice work with the smoke. The tones really fit the scene. A 10 from me and my Blue Dragon Award
