I hope nobody has been able to take an up close photograph of jet engine exhaust before :) This is a compilation of three seperate photos that have all been photoshopped alot. One picture of the jet engine exhaust, the photo of yours truly and then the third picture of Susie, my best friend and partner in crime. I had a great time putting all of this together! Thanks DPC!!!

Very well done, shadows and all. A realistic but still fascinating blend of elements, and I like how the engine gleams. I'm impressed that you got your "stance" so perfectly aligned with the curve of the floor.

Great job, should have made the front page IMO. Thought it was a jet engine, then again it could have been a macro of some kitchen utensil...

This scene from an adventure movie was one of my two 10s. Fantastic! Top performance by Susie :).

Simply wonderful and very intriguing! The dog is the perfect touch. 8 without the dog. 10 with it!

The image seems a bit too dark on the right hand side. The dogs gets lost in the darkness IMO. But overall, I really like it.

A machine to travel time and space, left me wondering which be the case? My little buddy along for the trip, for the ladies I appear to be more hip. To new and exciting locales we venture, come aboard if you dare, for we need not a map to experience our share.

Love the tones and the circular lines. Nicely inserted man and dog, although the latter is barely visible. Could have very easily bumped the exposure a tad to better integrate into the image. Love the gold tones you gave the turbine.

This should score very high. I'm not voting but if I was this image would be the only 10 I would give!!
