This is one of those times that the photo is better than you have anticipated :)

It couldn't be done without fellow DPCr ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Insomniac(he was driving the car and gave some technical ideas).
Three people were necessary to pull this one of.
One driving the car, another to lay on the ground after the car has passed, and the third one to shoot the cameras and to trigger the external flash to get the exposure.

Well done, and thought out before shooting. I like the way the car seems to be going into a groove in the horizon, creating a sort of focus point at the horizon that tries to drag your eyes away from the victim in the foreground.

Very cool effect. You pulled it off nicely too.

Although I don't like the subject (because I actually saw someone get hit), I must say that this is actually well done. You captured the moment quite creatively.

Fun image for sure! A great way to tell this story, and that should be rewarded and encouraged - I love it for that. I also think the exposure is perfect on the car-lights - great composition as well.

It leaves me wondering though: How did the photographer not get hit? Why didn't he do anything about this and just pushed the shutter? ;) Why isn't there more blood and sever bone-crushing :0 and finally, what's up with the shoe? ;)

It must have been tough to get that street light thing going on (I'm thinking that's not a street lamp and if it isn't, it looks prettty close.
Anyway, I think this certainly could be used for much discussion in a photography class for sure and I can't wait to read the details of how it was created. 8

I like shots that tell a story, and this one does that really well. Maybe a little puddle of blood would make it more convincing :)
