The frame for the shot is decent, however there's a couple distractions in the shot - especially the Chevrolet truck in front. The extended exposure creates a decent image of 'speed,' but when I look in the rear-view mirror at the drivers face, I don't see the fear. Good effort though :)

The colors are very nice, and the picture makes me uneasy.

I've similar pictures in recent challenges. Thus, a lower score for lack of originality. Sorry. Good luck in your future challenges.

Very nicely done!

On behalf of all of us lazy voters: your presentation would have been more viewer-friendly if your title included a brief definition of the phobia in addition to the technical word for it.

Had to look again to catch the long exposure effect with roadway and the truck in front - probably would be clearer if the light effects were a little more subdued. Very effective once caught, and I'm interested in the details.

18 mph...must be REALLY afraid of speed!

Since I can see the tailgate of the car in front of you, I'll guess that the Chevrolet is the truck that is speeding, hence the title of your phobia. However, the tailgate gets lost in the framing and bright lights. My first reactions were that you should have cropped out the speedometer that shows your going at a slow speed for this one, and that the driver should have been showing more fear in his expression captured in the mirror.

Kinda cool witht he bumper of a tuck right in your face!! Took me a min tyo see it Nice pic.

Speedometer shows you were traveling 5 and 15 mph (traffic tieup?) So that pretty much negates the fear of speed! If you cropped the speedometer out, you score would improve IMO.

Hmmm... you don't appear to be going very fast. More like a fear of lights. The effect is scary, tho.
