This was supposed to go into the Transportation challenge, but I didn't bother paying attention to what I was doing. Oh well.

A toy from my daughter's collection, purchased at the Gig Harbor Arts and Crafts festival last year. My sister suggested the location, and I took a bunch of shots to get what felt best.

thanks for all the comments. I felt like a complete choad when I realized I had uploaded the image for the Transportation to the From the Ground Up challenge. I'm surprised it did as well as it did, given the entirely wrong challenge :)

tuffy, I definitely can see the benefit to the DOF, and actually went out and took a couple more with at f/16. They look much nicer, I think.

I didnt comment during the challenge, but wanted to comment now to say I think this deserved to do much better!
I can agree with peoples comments that it may not have totally fit the challenge, but I thought it was an interesting idea and cute compostion. Keep it up!

Sorry, although the composition is good, the photo just lacks interest for me.

Just my opinion but I don't see the "from the ground up" in this photo. Nice DOF though.

IMHO, I would have preferred a little bigger DOF to be able to read more of the "no parking". Nice car!
