    I knew this would do well! Congrats!
(And thanks for the note on the portrait. Much appreciated...she is 12 now and tops in school and races downhill with a ski team all winter.)

    Congratulations -- my number 1.

    Congrats on your win, good find.

    Thank you everyone for your votes and for comments during and after voting.
The suggestion by a few of you to go completely B&W is a good one. I tried it and couldn't make up my mind which way to go but ended up leaving colour in the cars only.

    Congrats jomari!

Jul 16, 2018
    Congrats, great find, perfectly executed!

    Good eye. I've never seen anything like this entry. I love the uniqueness.

    I'm sure this will do well and it has a stylized look to it....yet....something doesn't feel right to me and I think that it is maybe just not clean enough...the black mirrors are so prominently positions and they break the striped pattern so much they pull my eye to them...I see that as a problem....maybe the problem is just with me.

    Mesmerizing shot, remembers me an old advertising campaign from Martini... really nice finding, like it very much, well done!!

Jul 16, 2018
    WOW! Eye stopping. I hope you frame this one, it deserves to be seen.
Kudos on spotting this and for producing such a great shot.

Jul 16, 2018
    What a fun image... first impression makes you want to look. in my TT

Jul 16, 2018
    Well caught. What a find! I like the way you have composed it and it is perfect for B&W.

Jul 15, 2018
    Made me laugh, great work.

Jul 15, 2018
    Well spotted! Excellent composition and lighting; great detail.

Jul 15, 2018
    Love this. Excellent vision to see the possibility of this scene, and perfectly captured and processed.

Jul 15, 2018
    Well spotted. I think I would have turned this into a B&W to get rid of the distracting blue elements etc.

I think this would have been a good candidate for a horizontal mirror shot (or whatever they are called) as the car on the right seems to reflect the line much more nicely. It would get rid of the imbalance of the two different models of car too.

    I love this image - what a great eye. Perfectly composed - high in my TT's

Jul 14, 2018
    Clever, and well-spotted. My sister-in-law, a zoologist enamored of zebras, would love this.

Jul 13, 2018
    bravo! Good catch

Jul 13, 2018
    What a great eye you have to find this! Really very interesting shot. High in my TT.

Jul 13, 2018
    I really like this - well spotted and executed

Jul 13, 2018
    Well seen. Striking, or should I say striping, image. Almost abstract. It took my eyes by surprise and a few moments for my brain to interpret which makes it all the more interesting. My only suggestion is convert to B&W to get rid of the remnants of color. High fav.

Jul 13, 2018
    Clever ;-)

Jul 13, 2018
    Works well, good eye! Not sure I wouldn't have made it all monochrome - well seen!
