This photo is part of my car right now, caused by an accident I had last week. Seems like it is going to stay like this for long since the other person, who's responsible for paying seems to be broke.

"The other person... seems to be broke."

Do u mean he's got no money or he broke during the accident?!

Kind of hard to see the irony here. It looks like a car headlight, but maybe something in the picture to put a firmer emphasis on the "beauty" would help make the connection. The geometry of the wreckage is interesting though.

Wow. This is facinating. I'm finding myself saying- you're right, this IS kind of beautiful in it's own way. Maybe this is why people stare at accidents??? Good job thinking outside the box. 8

That car looks as if it were new. The things people at DPC do just to get a photograph :-)

Very jumbled, had to really look to try to find the beauty and I'm still not sure I found it! But overall a nice shot, good lighting, nice and sharp.

all though it is, true, a busy image I think that is what gives it it's beauty. it's a nice tight composition, making it abstract. Focus is sharp, only down point might be that it's a tiny but dull - lack of contrast and clarity. but I very much like the image :)

Sorry, but for me this is too busy. Too much to look at.
