I wish this was composed better.. its an interesting idea.

You seem you be the only one to get the idea ... I wanted this look a lot like what you'd see under those conditions.

I had to shoot in tight (macro mode), since I was both modeling for and taking the shot -- with my left hand, crossed over. Sitting in the driver's seat, there's only a few inches between the lens and the wheel.

With a one-second exposure, I was actually pretty impressed at how in-focus the top of the bottle came out; most of the rest is more OOF because of the shallow DOF.

Dull, badly lit, out of focus, not a lot to commend it as a photograph.

Classic quote! Is this in a car? The only objects I'm really sure of is the bottle and a fingernail.

Not much good to say here, sorry. Out of focus, poor composition, noisy, etc. Better luck next time.

Not sure what you were trying to show, but I'm not getting it. That said, those definitely qualify in the ironic sense of the challenge!

I get the mood and message of the image
I am not sure that I like the lack of a focus point.
