Took many many many shots to get this, and about 7 passes over the bridge.
editing steps include converting from RAW, cloning out dead bugs on the car, sticker on windshield, curves, USM on sky, then again on the car at a different radius. and duplicate layer and set to overlay and opacity at 37%

Nice complimentry colors, and the movement blur is done well, but the clouds need more depth imho. Love the lighting on the driver.

I'm not sure I get the connection between your title and photo, but it does follow the alphabet. I do like the bright color of the car against the sky.

Vibrant yellow really makes the shot against the menacing sky.
Great sense of speed.

I understand this. I get the question. I hope that it is universally understood, but I doubt it. I expect many would see this shot as an advertizement for high powered, large displacement, sporty cars. This is a very powerful image and a powerful question, but I am not sure the image and question are obviously linked. ... that is just one man's opinion.

I really like how you caught the reflection of the headlights and the contrast between the sky and car in both color and intensity is great.

I really like this image.

Nice photo. Title feels a little shoehorned, which on this challeges kinds of counts against you.
