Car and Turtle       ©2016 babysister
Panasonic DMC-GX7       6th place, 85 points
1/500s, f2.8, ISO 200, 51mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Cropped and increased exposure       Extra Info: When I went to the shops I certainly did not expect to find a green car with long eyelashes and its owner holding a green turtle. I had to ask permission so she knew I was taking the photo but I did not pose her.

    Darn, I hoped you had some stories to tell about her. She looks like someone I'd just love to chat with...and yes, obviously posed was no reflection on you, just that this was the scene.

    I'd love to meet this lady - congratulations on a great find.

    It's not easy being green, but it's good enough for 6th place!!!

    Delightful shot, full of friendliness and green :-) Toad of Toad Hall comes to mind. "And another year for being green. " High in my picks

    What a lucky find for the challenge! The owner seems very happy to oblige you!

    I love this photo. This lady looks like a real character. I'm so glad she agreed to having her photo taken. Definitely in my favourites.

    Well that's a quirky one! Good match. In my tt.

    she looks Scary so a permission was the best policy

    Jade: Obviously posed but by herself not by me. I stumbled on this by pure luck. I went shopping in the village on a Sunday and there was a display of Heritage cars. I didn't stop to ask questions so can't help you on any details about the woman. There was a huge bat car with bits of red on it but I though it wasn't predominately red so could not use it even though it had another red car in the background.
aoc46: I suspect she did get the the Turtle to match the car. It's too much of a coincidence otherwise.

    Obviously posed and yet so compellingly warm and sincere that I just have to put it in my top ten. I love everything about this one excepting the distracting background which I would have worked to darken. (And you've framed this a little tight on the top especially though I am guessing it is to cut down on the background.) I'd love to know the story on this one. Do you know her? She looks like someone I'd love to sit down and have a coffee with. Does she surf? So many questions....

    Now, that's what I call a lucky find! What are the chances! Good shot, in my TT.

    Good colour match but too much distraction in the background.

    An amusing scene and excellent color match. I can't help wondering though if she deliberately bought the turtle to match the car - seems like the sort of thing that someone who'd put eyelashes on her lime-green car's headlights would do. Great shot!
