I wanted to get a better perspective, but the ground was in the way.

Post challenge comments:
Well, I thought I had nailed the elusive "wow factor" in this one and thought it would get to a 6, but the overall score and modest amount of comments tells me I was mistaken. Still a good score for a place as tough on entries as DPC. I think it's still going to be a personal fave of my own shots.

As they say: "Back to the drawing board"!

I had given this a 6. Two changes that might have improved the shot are:

A slightly higher crop on the bottom - perhaps to just below the bolt on the bumper. The undercarriage and sky showing under there are a bit distracting.

The hotspot reflections on the grill are a bit strong. You might have changed the angle of the shoot slightly or toned them down in post processing.

My first impression of this shot is RED - nice brilliant color, with good contrast against the deep blue in the sky. My second impression is that the composition overall seems a bit constrictive to me, like there's not enough room for your subject to breath. I think your choice of shooting angle does this, mostly - point and shoots usually have a fairly wide angle lens, 26mm or so if I'm not mistaken (and I very well could be mistaken!), but that may not have been wide enough to fully exploit your shooting angle and give a nice sense of breadth to the car's grill.
