I didn't think this would even make the top 10 from the scores it was bouncing around all week. Thanks for the comments everyone! I love the look of chrome against satin black paint.

I thought this was interesting:

Avg (participants): 5.8571
Avg (non-participants): 6.4648

...that's quite a difference eh?

I had a hard time choosing between 3 photos. I wanted to enter this one:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35804/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1068807.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35804/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1068807.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

...but I didn't want to hear the "...it's a whole car." BS, though the image focuses on the lines of the car, which in the scheme of things is detail. I wussed out. Shame on me.

I also thought this was a cool one:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35804/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1069499.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35804/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1069499.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I loved the sense of motion, coming-at-you thing happening.

Was stunned to not see this ribbon. You have a great eye for these shots. Love the processing on the other shots too.

Also, thanks for sharing the scoring difference - I have never been able to understand the voting well enough to predict it, but i would have bet this was top 3 easily.

Keep up the great work!
