    Nice shot John! And on a boardwalk too!

    One thing I especially like is that after a quick look I couldn’t see you in it!

    Well done!

    Very well done! The reflections add interest and splashes of color, but for me it's the lines and curves and complementary elements that make it. My favorite part and center of interest is the wheel. Which then flows out to the curves surrounding it and over to the grill, whose pattern is repeated in its shadow and on the glass of the headlight. The long almost straight line above the door and fender is echoed in the lines of the boardwalk. Lots to look at and appreciate.

    Stunning photo John... I love the focus on the wheel and the reflection.

    Don't you just hate it when the spectators get in your shots?

    Good eye...I shoot only reflections at car shows, as they're usually more interesting.

    I kept saying "shoo, shoo", they must have thought I meant show your shoes.
