Challenge: Camera Phone Free Study (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: 2011
Camera: HTC Desire Z
Location: Fort Worth Stockyards
Date: May 9, 2011
Date Uploaded: May 9, 2011

Purely a shot of opportunity. Ellen and I went out to shoot something for the fences challenge and Ellen forgot her camera, so we were swapping my 50D back and forth. This line of hot rods drove by leaving the stockyards when she had my camera and I was fast enough with the phone-cam to nail this one decent shot. I ended up liking it better than any of the phone-cam shots I put more thought into.

As much as I like this, I'm not expecting much in the way of an average score from it. I anticipate the top entries will be taken with iPhones, which have much better and sharper cameras.

Anticipated critiques/comments:
-Building/tower in the background is distracting
-Someone should guess it as mine, since I've entered pics of this abandoned meatpacking plant before.

Post-challenge notes:
Not a shabby finish at all. Great comments, and held up well against all the iPhones photos.

Love this shot, Steve. The whole thing has a vintagy feel about it, the prison tower thing, the abandoned, bombed out building. Back to the future.

excellent details and colors - i like the buildings behind to offset the shiny new-ness of this old car

I like it all... except that odd arm out the window when they're nobody attached to it. (not voting)
