Wow, my first blue! woohoo!
Of course i agree with many of the commenters that it looks like a car ad (BTW, the title is a Honda slogan, even though the car is a Chevrolet, i think). Sorry about that :). I would not put it on my wall, but I felt it might do well in a challenge. I'm sure glad I was right!

I actually stumbled upon this shot almost accidentally: went to the beach to try to find a couple of "lovebirds" for the romance challenge, did not have any luck, and was returning to my car when I saw this reflection...

Thanks again for votes and comments!

As others mentioned, this does look like a car ad, which of course is a complement because that just means that it looks very professional. I agree with you that it's not something I'd hang on my wall, but I'd be proud to have taken it just the same!

Wow, looks like a car brocure. Fantastic colors here and reflected on the car. The line on the car seems to intersect with the ridge of the wave, moving your eye through the picture. Well done!

I really like the colors and the horizontal lines which seem to make the car a part of the landscape instead of just an item sitting next to the landscape. Well done

I like the tones and the simplicity here. And, you have an off center shot that needs to be off center rather than just trying to meet the challenge. Thank you. :) 9 - good luck in the challenge!
