I took this out the window whilst traveling back to Oregon from California (I wasn't driving, obviously). I cloned out a bit of window dirties, fiddled with the colour, and did some various smoothing and contrast editing. Resized, added border, etc...

I'm expecting people to complain about this not meeting the challenge, but I wanted to do something different from the generic car photo I had been planning on using. I had the chance to take some great airplane shots from where I stayed in California, but I never had my camera out when one flew over. Boohoo!

This is a cool shot. Looks like something you'd see in a car commercial. I like the POV, the contrast, and the bright blue sky. Good job...

I didn't like this one at first, but I keep coming back to it. It has a nice feeling to it. Good use of title too.
