I found that Mercedes benz during my visit in the Parnitha mountain . It was outside from the casino and it was shine and clear. I didn't notice that the reflection of the tree was that bad as i read on the comments. I really like this photo...

I thought that the black vignette was legal in but it's not ...Thank's you all for the comments

Excellent stuff - very edgy, dramatic, and the brand just seems to shine. I only wish the reflection of the tree on the hood wasn't there - a bit of distraction and costs you a single point...9

You present a great concept for a car ad here, perfectly matched with your title. Great angle!

I can see you did not cloned out those branches in the front glass of the car, perhaps trying to break symmetry and/or adding some drama?

Terrific. Seriously looks like a Mercedes ad print. Nice. If I were to change a thing, the tree reflection in the top middle might need to be gone, but otherwise - perfect.

Dark, moody, would look great in a magazine. well done.

I can't decide whether or not the tree reflection helps or hinders this shot. I like the lighting on the hood. A more symmetrical chrome reflection on the middle grill would be appealing. 7

Nice, but I wish there was no reflection of the tree.

Very simple, clean and lovely tones. The only thing that lets this otherwise perfect image down is the reflection of the tree which spoils the symmetry

I think this has to be the only shot where the rest of the car is missing and yet it still looks good. Great work

just perfect

the reflection of the sky and the tree adds some reality to this pic. well done, great perspective

Great photo. Is that hood a bit dusty though? 8/10

Love the title and the crop.

I cant decide whether the reflection in the bonnet adds to the shot by showing a sense of depth and a world beyond the car . . or is a distraction.

But overall a great shot.

Really terrific angle and perspective. I find the reflection of a tree brach or whatever in the windshield terribly distracting. Great otherwise.

great idea. nice tones. Only problem for me is that I woul dhave liked the benz logo in the center. it calls out for that IMO

Very effective lighting! There's a distracting tree reflection in the upper highlight.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

good idea and POV. nice color. the reflection of the tree on the hood is a bit irritating, though. border is overdone
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good technical shoot. Not selling me on a particular car, but more an a brand. Better then the other logo shoots in this competition. Given the look of the shoot, I'm not fond of the tree in the reflection. IMHO -6-
