Thank you for all of the great and positive comments. No the car is not remote controled or pushed. I wanted to represent the action of driving a car which is a very adult function witout showing the driver. I thought about taking a motion picture and project it in the garage. But that would not show the speed on the dial. The solution was simple, wear black pants and let go of the stering wheel. I had a couple of close calls with mail boxes and oncomeing traffic, but had fun. And yes next time I will clean the car... HA :) Thank you again.

I really hope you had a long exposure while you were pushing the car. :o) I like this and gave it a 7

Wow - you've created movement! It makes me dizzy! very exciting.

7 - Good execution, seemingly. Criticism; needs a slight nudge rotation up on the right. Depending how you did this, just for added effect, more movement if possible on the 'outside', sharper too of course on the 'inside', would have made this even better in my opinion. Maybe the gearshift/stick incorporated more instead of half chopped off, as doesn't seem you could eliminate it because of the steering wheel.

Very cool effect. I'm looking for a bit more contrast in the background, but this is really quite good.

This is magnificant work... very confusing when I tried to figure out how it was done. Great job.

Great shot, and clever idea. I've wondered what the interior of an H2 looks like.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2005 05:48:50 PM
I'm curious on how it's done--remote control? (don't laugh!). Good motion image

This is like a wind tunnel. I like the symmetry and unusual take on this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2005 07:17:54 AM
a clean windshield and more saturation outside the car would get you a 10 from me - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2005 05:03:05 AM
That's a very clever image which I don't think has enough to do with the challenge which is a great pity because otherwise it's worth an 8+
