Thank you one and all for taking the time to vote on my picture. This is a new PB for me.

The concept of this picture had an Amish buggy in it. But due to the road actually being pretty far from the stop sign it couldn't be used.

The car looks like liquid, really cool effect, and the reflection from the car bonnet is fairly cool. It looks like a scene from a film set.

Feels old school to me - I like it. I like how the signs glow.

Seems a bit on the dim side, but otherwise I like this. The treatment really does a lot for the variety of details and textures in the scene. I might have cropped out a little more of that sky. For me, the extra sky does not really add anyting to the scene.

At first this seems a bit overprocessed, yet it pulls me right into the photo. This make me keep exploring the photo, which means it's well done.

The scene was chosen great for an HDR picture, and the composition is great. The processing looks too artificial for me, in particular, I don't like the "airbrush look" on the car. (The airbrush look also stands out in one of the other pictures, it has a bike in it).
