Nice hue.

Unique image with a real mood to it.
On a personal note, the border for me doesn't do anything for the shot and may have been a touch better in black. Just a touch on the noisy side, but knowing the type of shot this is, getting the image in under the 150K mark I bet was tough.
Well Done - ((7))

Nice engine details but I can see noise on the valve covers and on your air intake (?) above the butterflies. Also, the neon light is a bit weak, in my opinion, not making enough of a presence in this photo.

I think this is an exceptional photo putting a unique spin on, what has turned out to be a challenging challenge. Very good job. By the way, I am a GIRL and I like it. I bet the guys will REALLY like it.

Tennuous connection to the challenge for me. There is a hint of neon in the color cast of the light but it's not really singing out to me as 'neon'.
