I love semis, they are so scary and huge and just watching other cars make way is great. This guy was awesomely big and yes... I was driving!

Was going to do this for the perspective challenge but forgot about eastern time zone and was literally seconds late. Grrrr

This is a great view-point shot (or whatever they're called :P).
Amazingly crisp details, especially considering how the photo was taken! Beautiful framing in the mirror, too.
I think that maybe part of the reason I like this shot is that my husband drives semis for a living.

This is a great rear-view mirror shot.

That..... is awesome, I would say, 8, if you were eating a subway sub at the time,I'd say 10 for sure.It is perfectly positioned in the mirror.

I agree that this is one car mirror shot that stands out as good. Great focus and perspective. I would consider bumping up the color a hair (of course, I tend to overdo that myself!). Good shot!

I like it a lot. The title too:) The brighter green is a bit distracting in the otherwise muted photo.
Would have given 7 or 8

Yeah, Rikki, BUT... The unique POV (one valid definition of "perspective") itself contains TWO different sets of "true" perspective, with external and internal (relative to the mirror) vanishing points. It's a very dynamic image IMO.

The contrast could be improved but I like the different perspective here. Technically, IMHO I think this classifies as a "point of view". I would still score it a 7 while browsing and might bump it up to an 8 after seeing all the other shots. I've seen the others and I think this would be an 8 since this is one of two I think that is done this way. Now be advised that whether is be a POV or a perspective is all up to the viewer's interpretation. As an architect, perspective for me shows a true convergence of vanishing points. It's still a fanciful image and your POV makes this image sing to me :)

One of the few rear-view mirror photographs i've liked.
This should have done well. Nice perspective!
