Caught this shot of one of our work trucks comin up a gravel driveway. Was happy with the shot. I like the way the back ground seem to blur. Not much done to the shot other than cropping, resizing and adjusted contrast slightly of the subject.

I really like this. It's one of my favorites so far and I can see you getting a ribbon with this one (or at least top 10). It does look as though you used a bit too much noise reduction to soften the image and that's a bit distracting. I think I would have liked it just as much without NeatImage or something like that. However, just my personal taste. -9

A bit overprocessed for me, but a nice pic nonetheless.

Looks overprocessed. Nice capture otherwise. I like the black and white choice.

It looks pretty soft (in a Neat-Imaged kind of way) but it works here. I'd like to see a little more contrast...particularly darker blacks. a little well-placed burning would do famously methinks. great job. P

I love everything about this picture except the truck almost looks plastic. Maybe too much NeatImage? Anyway this is still one of my favorites for the week.

Despite the rrather odd blurring and strange smoothness of areas of this shot (do i smell Neatimage?), I'm not completely convinced that it warrants the centred composition - in that sense that the challenge really requires. Tough one this week, I suspect.

Nice image, but a little overdone on the blur or neat image (in my opinion). I'd like the edges to be a little harder, not quite so soft. Still, I think it's better than the run of the mill flower/pet shots, so I'm giving you an 8.
