I took this shot at an antique car show on my college campus. Looking for those shots that say automobile, while saying more. Almost zero editing - I only cleaned up some dust speckles on the door frame.

Nice sharp focus and great red color.I don't know what the object is and what's the story behind the photo.

Simple but funky and creative shot.
03/17/2009 10:27:50 AM
nice still shot ;) six from me

Nice use of reflection in the chrome.
03/16/2009 05:43:42 PM
great capture - keep up the good work
03/16/2009 03:35:42 PM
I can't work out what that dice is sitting on
03/15/2009 11:25:01 PM
Great use of color. It jumps out at you.
03/15/2009 08:30:29 PM
Very nice auto abstract. I like taking these photos. It's like you see something deeper than most.
03/15/2009 07:02:14 PM
Not sure I understand this one. Sorry. Die is tack sharp for sure, but the rest confuses me.
03/15/2009 04:12:50 PM
Nice simple composition and the red stands out nicely against the chrome.
03/15/2009 12:38:39 PM
Cool shot, the reflection is good, Nice coloring.
03/15/2009 12:02:38 PM
cool shot, a little PS removal and it's perfect.
03/15/2009 11:58:39 AM
Very clear, interesting (what is it?).
03/15/2009 10:44:53 AM
Nice reflection
03/15/2009 12:58:37 AM
nice contrast in this shot, 6
03/14/2009 10:57:44 PM
nice crisp focus
03/14/2009 11:27:36 AM
is that a door lock? how funny...
03/14/2009 09:34:41 AM
Nice composition. The red color fits very well with the chrome and the black.
03/14/2009 12:00:43 AM
03/13/2009 10:13:34 PM
Nice splash of red
03/13/2009 06:28:21 PM
I like how the shot has the red isolated in black and white. Looks like a lock on a car door!?!?!?
03/13/2009 04:53:08 PM
Nice perspective and texture.
03/13/2009 01:46:20 PM
interesting.. beef up the saturation on the red a bit.
03/13/2009 12:16:07 PM
love the contrasting colors, white / red / black. #s on the dice 5+3 add up to 8, guess that's what I'll have to give you for a score
03/13/2009 10:57:46 AM
good focus and DOF, but rather uninteresting subject
03/13/2009 09:12:44 AM
I'm trying to figure out what this is. It reminds me of the pegs in the machines at the gym. I like the red against the metallic and black. Great colors here.
03/13/2009 04:19:35 AM
great red against the chrome / black
03/12/2009 07:21:47 PM
Good shot. I think the full reflection of the dice would've scored better.
03/12/2009 04:30:09 PM
interesting composition, and light, nice abstract....
03/12/2009 03:47:52 PM
Now here's a blast from the past. Fun.
03/12/2009 12:41:00 PM
Interesting and artistic.
03/12/2009 10:22:18 AM
Wow, what a lovely red dice, I love the reflections too.
03/11/2009 09:06:49 PM
Interesting image. I find myself asking, "Why?"

The red POP! is good... but I just can't find the interest here.

I like the red and the high contrast on the chrome along with the perspective you chose. Nicely done!

I'm guessing that's the lock on a car?
03/11/2009 12:33:37 PM
love the simplicity

Shiny won't get you home, but it gives you something to polish while you're waiting.
03/11/2009 09:58:49 AM
Congratulations on being part of this 1000th challenge on DPC. Keep up the good work!!
03/11/2009 02:37:34 AM
Fun car detail. The reflections are really good.
