Voted. Good Luck. I think you stand a good chance if the 6 images are all the finalists. I think it's between 3 & 4 personally.

Trying to be humbled... I agree with 3 & 4... 2 of the other finalists cheated in the pre-finalist voting. I won't mention who they are but I'm sad to see this competition was skewed by it.

I voted for you and think it was the best photo. Composition and background on most of them were bad. Your shot is pretty darned solid. I liked #5 second best.

Good luck.

Nice image.

Man, I gotta quit reading the rules for competitions. Major buzzkill.

Personally, I would be pumped to see them using my photo all over the place! I sold a few photos from the event, had a blast up there with some buddies, and if I win this final contest I get 12 pairs of DC Shoes, and an article about me in a magazine.

It's not a lot but enough to make me content.

Thanks for the support, guys.

Looking at the entries with a "photogapher's" eye, I like the composition and hues of 3 and 5.
As someone who likes looking at cars, I like the perceived action seen in 3 and 5. 4 is close but there is no specific direction of the motion- Does that make sense?

Unfortunately it seems the average point scores seem to be getting "skewed" again. I am not much into statistics but it looks like 2 of the images have definite bumps in their averages while the other four look to be unusually low. IMHO..


I dream of Heaven.
My cameras dream of "L".
photograph/snapshot ratio 1/250 and I'm okay with it.

Oh, and you may want to ask a mod to move this to "motorsports".

I've seen worse rules for photo contests. At least you retain the rights to your images.

I've voted yours best too. It had the best composition of all of them.

I liked yours best. #5 was in second. I actually like that picture more, but the post processing is what made me not like it. I think it was over done a bit.

I think that one has major PP to cover up some goofs. I still like it, too.

And thanks. :)
