    Terrific capture, Connie. Great autumn colors plus the blurred red of the car. Very well done.

Thanks Paul and Charlene... I was photographing fall colors when the classic cars started coming through. Now if anyone can identify the make from this blurry shot...I will be mighty impressed. Of course, I'm clueless so anything you guess.. I would probably believe.

Excellent shot, Connie! I like the blur of the car, and the colour of the scene around it. Well done.

holy smokes Connie!! subject matter is something different from you, but definitely has the same kind of high-impact, earth-shattering, mind-blowing effect on me! Good grief!! A winner for sure.

Okay, now that I have all the emotions out of the way: Great colors, like the slightly tilted comp, and that blurred car --- terrific! it's a Ford Pinto :-) Really an awesome shot -- hope the G2's shutter lag didn't present too much of a problem?

Absolutely fantastic in every way my friend and most deserving of first. It doesn't get any better than this. This has the perfect amount of blur so that you can detect what it is. Amazing. The colors are great too. This is most definitely a visual feast. I dream of images like this;o) Ah yes, Merry Christmas indeed.
