Thanks for all the comments.

This was a snapshot really. Last minute thing. Had to find a decent car. This one drove by a couple of times, and I got it. hehe
I agree with all the criticism. The car should have been more left, bigger, less sky, sharper and rotated so higher.

The other option was

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/36606/120/623182.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/36606/120/623182.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

both fantastic images. truly excellent.

oh and WOO Porsches! I'm currently working on revamping the 914 set of cars in Need For Speed 5 including adding 914/6's and 916's so I can get a more realistic and complete experience for a few friends who have expressed interest in racing over LAN.

PORSCHE.

Stormy sky AND obligatory curvy road! Nicely done. Not sure I like the vignetting, but nice work overall.

Nice processing! Love the title! Reminds me of REO Speedwagon. One of the best in the bunch. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2007 11:04:26 PM
Totally my favorite so far. Love the blue glimpse in the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2007 09:41:06 PM
Love the car. IMHO, would've liked a higher vantage, and less sky reflection on the car. I would've preferred some motion blur also. As is, the scene looks too static, like the car is parked on the road, vs. what I expect from a Porsche, which is exquisite movement. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2007 07:44:55 PM
Nice. Good post process. Good composition. If you had the car a little bit closer, because now it mixed with the road and background a little bit :/

Beautiful shot and lovely image for an ad!

Beautiful car, great angle, and wonderful sky. Overprocessed, but that fits with the idea of this as a car ad. 9

Lovely location, nice post processing. Very effective as a sales pitch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2007 01:45:35 AM
Not a fan of this sort of processing, but it's well done, and the composition is spot on.

That is terrific. Looks as if it'd be in a shiny brochure. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2007 09:04:30 AM
Great to see some vintage motors in this challenge. You picked a good environment to place the car, the sky looks great. My only nitpick is the jaggies in the line along the edge of the car. but will not mark you down for that.. This is my pick for one of the top 3..

high drama, good lines, really shows off the car.

Nice timeless feel. I like the location - no modern "steet furniture" to spoil the shot.

Great sky but I think it over powers the rest of the image. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 07:58:35 PM
Great vibe to this photo! Still screams fun and excitement, even though rainy day and convertible don't exactly jive advertising wise. Great car, great photo!

wow!! really good image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 02:17:16 PM
Does this image make me want to but a 366? Possibly not, but it did stop me in my tracks. Super colours and a great job on the clouds (Gosh I hope the skies did not open given that the roof was down.

Nice S bend and diagonal leading line although I may have liked it even more if you had played with the straightening tool to give the effect of the car going up, rather than down hill. Even as it is a very nice shot 8

12/10/2007 02:08:46 PM
I'd be just a little worried with the top still down.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 01:08:29 PM
Lovely car - very nice shot.

I really like the road snaking out the back of the picture, giving a real sense of distance and depth to the shot.

This has a very interesting look. Good colours and composition.

I really like the feel of the image, it looks like the sun is always shining on the car even when the weather is stormy. nice name as well

--->

after seeing them all, i'll bump up to 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 05:28:13 AM
The cross-processing or colour toning works really well here. It's a touch high contrast for my liking, and I'd prefer to see the car a little bigger in the frame, but overall, a really nice image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 03:38:06 AM
wonderful vintage style shot. the car itself could be a little sharper and brighter on the side
12/10/2007 01:15:27 AM
Very dramatic post processing for a beautiful car. With the great leading line of the road I almost would have like to see the car a little more to the left of the picture. You should do very well in this competition. -8-

A little over-processed for an advertisement, but a great image no less; and car!
