Thank you all for your kind comments and votes. I do not feel I was robbed at all, as the 3 images ahead are great and much more impacting than mine, but I do appreciate your praise.

For those that asked, this is the camera setup for this shot. I drove the Porsche behind the pace car (SUV containing the camera setup) and shot the pictures myself using radio control. Perfect speed coordination was needed to achieve a sharp image of the car. Our speed was 50MPH. I am happy that this shot gave me a new PB, but I am happier that my brother got his first blue ribbon, which was long overdue.

Wow, an awesome shot again. You seem to enjoy duct-taping your camera to cars a lot. ;-) You should definitely have gotten a ribbon for this one.

Should have been first place. The work you've done, the colors, the background effect and the sharpness of the car. PERFECT!

Highly underrated, you were very unlucky to miss out on a ribbon after beating 7.4, but I'm glad you're pleased that your brother got a ribbon.

That's one serious setup for this shot, thanks for sharing. Well done!

BRAVO !

Well done on a HM and a PB, it was fantastic for the challenge

Congratulations brother for this extraoridinary shot!!!

This new PB could not be more deserved. Your shot is, by far, the best of the challenge. It has not only the merits of all the creative and hard work you went through for its execution, but everything from both, technical and artistic povís: location, composition (including thirds, triangles, guide lines), exposure, color, perfect - from camera- motion blur, etc, etc. you name it, this shot has it. And the great comments and high score confirm it.

You know that a couple of times in the past I have had slight regrets when loosing a place, or a ribbon, to some other images, but this time I would have been proud to escort your perfect entry from a couple of steps below. For me the blue is yours.

Maybe you could post the details of the making of this brilliant shot, so the entire dpc community will have a chance to learn from what you did.

Love the motion blur. This does look like something in a brochure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2007 11:33:03 PM
This shot is great! I can't find anything that I don't like about it. A lonely stretch of road, beautiful blue sky with clouds, and the real feel of speed from the blurred motion. So far, my favorite of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2007 08:13:32 PM
One of my top picks....did you take this one from a moving vehicle?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2007 12:53:44 PM
Oooh, with motion blur and everything! Nice. I can't help but notice the white blob above the windshield; looks like a giant piece of popcorn. Maybe clone that out?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2007 10:51:54 AM
This is a good motion shot. For some reason it falls short of selling a car, possibility because a Porsche is so out of my price range, LOL.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2007 02:23:58 PM
I can feel the speed, very well taken picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2007 09:12:58 AM
Nicely done! Great blur, one of the best in the bunch. 10

12/14/2007 09:45:50 PM
Nice!! I love Porsche ever since owning a 944. I wish there was more even lighting on the car itself, but other than that, very nice motion blur. Conveys speed quite nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2007 07:24:14 PM
You are first in my list :) You earn 1 extra point for that :)
I am glad it's a good start for me :)

Very clean photo. Sharp. Colors are excellent. It is a very good car ad and congratulations on your ribbon ;)

GREAT capture! Must have been tough to get, but you did a great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2007 08:57:27 PM
This ones confusing me a little.
Is the car in motion or have you just added the motion blur? Reason i ask is that it just seems to end about a third of the way in from the left hand side.
Also the shadow looks a little bizarre.
Nice picture though.

Sexy car....... I love Porsche.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2007 06:49:20 PM
got to be the best of the bunch. I sincerely hope this ribbons. 10 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2007 06:08:36 PM
Truely an authentic photo add! And to add to that you can tell it's a true motion blur because the closer the side ditch to the camera the more blurry the photo. BB
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2007 09:23:10 AM
Nice moving pic, and a great sharpness on the car. Really makes you want to get out and drive. I think the background would have been better with even more motion blur ... its only slight in the foreground and none further back down the road diminishes the sense of speed you are going for. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2007 07:11:32 AM
Great lines for the shot. Not sure how you managed to get the scenery and road markings blurred but the clouds not. Has a nice sense of motion to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2007 06:21:09 AM
hopefully this is the winner, you deserver it. wow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2007 07:11:05 PM
Excellent stuff - the stop action on the Porsche is spot on and the movement in the trees as this little gem tears up the pavement works really well.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2007 03:17:44 AM
I believe I can say it.... Nailed it! Too bad the sun wasn't more to the front of the Porsche and behind the camera. A trailing shadow would look more ideal than a leading one. Oh well, we're not God. ;-)

Good light and movement, shutter speed couldn't be better, How did you get the low camera angle?

You get an extra point just because it is a Porsche. Love the feel of speed and angle of the shot.

12/10/2007 10:06:54 PM
Great stopped motion. Would like to know how you pulled this off.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 06:28:24 PM
An excellent shot, which could better emphasized with a more adjusted cropp, and a closer view of the car. Nice slogan too and pretty cap :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 04:38:32 PM
you really created the feeling for speed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 04:01:37 PM
Fantastic image. My only nit pick would be to have cropped a bit off the left side. The sharp clouds are a bit jarring with the strong motion in the rest of the image. But it is a fantastic shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 03:59:04 PM
Very nice, This photo is soemthing I would expect to see opening up a brochure at a Porsche dealer. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 02:17:01 PM
Best in challenge from my opinion. You see this picture and you think 'mmm I'd like one of those' super composition colouring and the foreground motion blurring works very well. 9 from me (the only thing stopping it from being a 10 is that I would like the car to be a tad larger in the frame)

Great photo, good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 10:52:30 AM
Nice catch
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 08:22:16 AM
I think this is great, but it feels like a tighter crop would give it even more energy. Also, the car should be further to the left of the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 07:21:11 AM
Good use of a factory slogan......the stopped motion quality is terrific, and the top down view just evokes desire. nicely done! 8

nice motion capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 06:05:29 AM
Nice crisp panning shot, and great colours. I'd like to see the car bigger in the frame, so ride your bike a little closer to the front wheel for the next shot. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 05:12:12 AM
I knew you would do exactly this shot, Señor... well done, though I don't like that touch of cross-processing (probably shadows/highlights?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 12:53:07 AM
A lot of work went into this shoot... Great colors and a very believable looking car ad. The onl thing that I would have changed is a closer or different crop. IMHO -7-
