  #180 Sparkle
Entry 3 of 25
   
 
Christmas Cab       ©2016 SteveBee
Panasonic DMC-GX85       3rd place, 107 points
1/13s, ?, ISO 800, ?, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Exp+, Contrast-, Shadows+, Highlights-, Clarity+, Vibrance+       Extra Info: The cab driver is a retired symphony trombonist. It took him 20 hours to apply 9000 lights to the car while making sure that all the doors open freely. I was walking about when I first spotted the cab driving by but missed catching a shot. Later it passed by again stopping at a red light a block ahead. I ran and caught up just in time to snap one shot.

    Good job chasing this car down and managing to get a shot. It's so nice to see people going all out to celebrate the season and make people happy.

    Better than a packet of M&M's. Well caught under difficult circumstances. Lovely sparkles.

    This is one of the closest entries to how I see "sparkle". Colourful scene in keeping with this time of year.

    Nice find! A closer crop would have been better but still in my TT.

    Great wide angle shot of an interesting subject. I might have cropped the other cars out...In my TT.

    Great effort by you and the cab decorator. I do feel this lacks some composition, it is not the most flattering angle, although it does have lots of sparkles.

    Sparkling, to be sure, though I'm not sure I'd want to ride in it. I'd prefer a tighter crop that removes the cars left and right.
