nice angle on this shot. I like how all the hoods are open. I have had the wonderful pleasure of seeing tom wopat perform live in a play Equus. It was very good. Never got to see the Dukes of Hazzard show though, but heard it was really good. nice lighting for this. great job and good luck in the challenge.

But I thought there was only one, I thought the dukes were real, they lied to me.

Nice color, but seems a bit blurry.

Don't ruin the illusion for me! I used to love that show. Nice colour but those guys in the foreground get in the way of the real star. - floyd

I bet you could find more red necks there then you could shake a stick at. This one kind of scares me. I didn't know people did this kind of suff.. it is a neat photo

I like the repetition. I would really like to see a diagonal shot of the hoods open, cropped in such a way that includes not much else -- could be very nice with brigh contrast and good lighting. Of course, it wouldn't be appropriate for this challenge, so I'm not suggesting a change to your submission, only an avenue of further investigation with the photo. The reds are great, and the General Lee definitely has a place in my childhood memories. 5, just-married

They don't make shows at good as this any more! This reminds me of being a kid because it was one of my favorite shows!

Just a good ole boy.....OH, sorry. LOL. LOVED that show, though it has really not much to do with the subject.

Yeeee-haaah! Is there a reason for so many cars, trees and people in the photo? Surely, your subject is the General Lee (and possibly adults re-living their childhood passion) so I feel there are too many distractions in this photo. Perhaps it was not possible to get a snap of a General Lee alone, or perhaps just a snap of part of the car's side (showing 01 & G. Lee). How about an adult's expression as he/she gazes at the G. Lee? However, this photo genertaed some positive memories of my childhood so, according to my voting standard, your photo received a fairly decent mark. And overall, positive memories = smiles = thanks to you!

This look like another entry!
08/26/2002 05:12:00 PM
This really reminds me of my own childhood: The Dukes of Hazzard.
Nice effect of all the General Lees in a row with the hood opened!

Nice colours. To me (purely personal) this says more about teenage boys and men than it does about childhood (I tend to see childhood as that time when we are young kids, before we hit the teenage years, where we like to consider ourselves as "young adults").
08/26/2002 12:37:00 PM
Not a bad photo, but maybe stretching it for the challenge
08/26/2002 08:54:00 AM
oooooooo....man, I miss that show :)

This is disturbing. Very very disturbing. :)
