Hope it does well, i like it. only levels and sharpen, from the jpeg.

Post Challenge: Thank you everyone for taking the time to vote and comment, it is very appreciated. I am glad this did so well because I did very little editing, only a little levels to make sure the black was black on most monitors and sharpen. Thanks again.

Just incredible that this is on the front page of this place. Pat yourself on the back! And it gives me hope for the highschoolhead sectors of humanity.

I like the simplicity of this, great shallow DOF, seems like there's a big ol white wall of sheetrock behind the gas pump. Congrats on another red!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2009 02:58:34 PM
Ok. Here's a Ribbon Winner for sure! Great catch! Good idea stopping down enough to catch some natural starburst with the light. Subject perfectly positioned in the frame - very cool natural vignette. Yep, yep - Nice job.
