There is about 5 hours left in this challenge. I am currently holding onto a 7.5. I am tickled that this has been received so well. This is Maverick again...he has the greatest expressive face, I tried with the other dogs, but his expression was to good to pass up! So this image was actually taken in daylight. I placed a black backdrop over the car to get the night effect.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69668/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1106844.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69668/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1106844.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
I had a strobe inside the car to increase some interest in lighting. Without it, the image seemed rather flat. It took awhile to get it right.

We tried several different scenes including a rainy night:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69668/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1106757.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69668/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1106757.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
And even had the neighbor pose as a frustrated driver:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69668/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1106758.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69668/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1106758.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Overall this was a lot of fun!

You could have chosen either of the other two, and still won, especially the one with your neighbor driving.
