Great shot! Very displacing POV and DOF which makes one double-take. Good idea and rightfully high on the table (although looking at the winners I believe it should have been much higher still). I particularly like your use of the lights in the background - much like a car park of dock somewhere.

Very graphical indeed. The light and clearity of the colours make this a really wonderful miniature.

Excellent work. One of the best model car shots. The lights really make this image stand out and the focus on the yellow line was a stroke of genius.

Good job with the lights and the yellow stripe. I think it's the best of the car photos. 8

Nice shot. Can't tell at 1st glance if the car is miniature or not.

This image has a lot of impact. The composition is great. The colours work really well together. The contrasting textures really enhance each other also.

Very nice photo. When I looked at the thumbnail I thought this was another one that didn't meet the challenge because there was only one object. After seeing it full, the only give a way is the yellow line and it works perfectly. Reminds me of those behind the scenes shows where they show all the miniatures they use for special effects. Very good job.

This is such a good picture. You really feel like you are looking at a miniature world. I rate this one a 10!

Very Nice!!!

You get my first 8! A great example of a shot that meets the challenge perfectly!

The shot itself is beautifully framed, lit and focused...I predict a top ten for you, if not a ribbon.

Perhaps the best in this challenge. Good lighting, you actually have something by which to gauge that the primary subject actually IS miniature. Heck, you even managed to capture some lovely lighting in the background that doesn' throw off your lighting of the subject but can be easily identified by anyone who's had to drive home at 3:00 AM from someone's house and barely been able to keep those eyes open. Very good composition and execution.

Love the use of the yellow line to add such strong colour and to add perspective too. Addition of lights in black sky really makes this toy car picture more complete than the rest. Nice composition too. 9
