It's my son's car (sitting in my driveway) and very real, indeed!

He just happened to drive over in it during the contest, so I took a picture. He had wanted one since he was a kid in the 1980's and saw the Back To The Future Delorian at Universal Studios.

Not fond of the selective blur, for some reason this looks like a toy model more so than a real car.

funky shot with the over the top blurring. would have liked to see a more compositionally strengthening background . perhaps parked in the center of the street with homes lining the sides more symmetrically...just a thought.

what a truly bizarre image. the car looks like a toy, but for the pavement below. arrexsting, yet annoying. vaguely stereoscopic?

I like the POV you've taken when composing this. Works well. Not sure about the gaussian blur. It works, but is a little obvious. May take a hit on that. Good luck in the challenge.

This is nice. We watched Back to the Future for the first time just a couple of weeks ago.

OMG, that is sweet. Makes me wonder if it's real, LOL! The total clarity of the Delorian compared to the background, especially around the front area suggests that you seperated it on layers and blurred the rest, you can see the tell tale signs around the front area. Very nice lighting but the angle of the car seems weird to me for some reason. A 6

Ahh sorry, the blurred backround a little bit too blurred for my taste, it´s pretty apparent it was done in the post processing and not by a big aperture...

Otherwise a pretty cool car that I always wanted to own when I grew up, well, one that flew anyway :)

great picture! For some reason it almost looks like a toy car , but then it looks real as well. You got a fantastic angle on that one, well done !!

If we were voting on subject alone, you'd win, but the faked-DOF is hurting the image. Shouldn't be so blurry on the right side in the grass.
