Hopefully this one isn't too dark for most peoples personal tastes, but I liked the mood of my previous contests submission, so I am sticking by that one. But otherwise, I also chose on this one not to really even do much. D-Lighting from my D80... thats it besides the resize.

This could also be a "Car advertisement" challenge photo :) Consol is very clear, sharp. I can't see you much, your hands blurry too. I like outside though. I don't know, this shot has a good potential if taken better. Example: I rather see your eyes from the mirror, instead of your hat. I also would like to see your hands sharp not blurry, since there is nothing else is happening like a deer crossing by.

Interesting picture. I would have liked to see your eyes in the mirror.

Looks like you are sliding off the road

You should've raised the camer POV so that we (the viewer) could see your face in the rear-view mirror! Snow is so much fun to drive in.

I like how outside of the vehicle everything is motion blur and even your hands. It really feels like you're driving. BB

Really great idea, however I think if more of your face was shown it would have been a better SP. Nice job.

Would be more effective, I think if we at least got your eyes in the rearview...

I like the hint of an eyebrow. Neat thing is this is gender non-specific - even the hand blurred takes away that clue.

Self portrait? Tripod in the backseat? I love it:P

To me this is not a self portrait.

I felt I need to see more of you in this shot, the shot tells me more about the inside of the car than the driver.

Great light.
