Taken at a famous flea market.

pp: RAW conversion, crop, curves, saturation, magic lasso, hue/saturation, contrast, deep yellow filter, exposure, resize, magic lasso, usm, smart sharpen, sharpen edges, save for web. Took some liberties with the resize, partly to emphasize the funky design of the cars, and also to make the image bigger!

I like this quite a bit more than the average voter. I like the subjects, the color, the clarity, the texture of the table and the DOF. So what's not to like??? I also like the way is looks like the cars are parked on a wharf as though waiting for a ferry -- just lacking people. ;)

Very crisp, very clean shot, and definitely meets the challenge. Hard to get voters to go for "toys" in many instances, though. Perhaps just a tad oversharpened on the red cars, but I tend to prefer softer over supersharp most of the time, so that could just be me.

Nice shot which IMO would be even better if the other cars were more out of focus.

Quite the mix of rides! The shallow DOF makes some of the other cars look real. The red on the cars is a bit weird, although that's probably how they came.
