The illusion was supposed to be the color changes the paint went through. And since the paint is actually called "Chrome Illusion Chameleon Purple" I thought it fit. The car wasn't mine--I saw it parked in a restaurant parking lot, and had never seen the paint before. It deserves all the criticism it got, but thought I'd show it to you anyway, because I thought it was interesting.

Nice idea, should have used a different bakground though.

Nice car - is the illusion that the car is actually not all of these pretty colors?

IMHO the lack of originality and the lack of an illusion effect are the two minuses for this image. The choice of background doesn't help either.

To me this is a very harsh looking photo and I don't understand the illusion.

I think the background is a bit distracting, be good to have softer focus on the background (if you can do it with your camera?)

Nice paint job! What is the illusion? score modify-able, 6 Swash

I looked for quite a while here and can't determine what the illusion is... maybe it's the paint job on the car and the colors? The exposure here is a bit off... the near side of the car is quite dark... - setzler

thats a smart looking car but not much of an illusion.

Nice photo, but no relevance to the topic whatsoever.

The sky looks extremely over blown and harsh. The framing is off (the front of the car is nearer the edge of the picture than the left is).

I'm not sure what's an illusion about this either, except for possibly the pearlescent paintwork on the car?
