I will accept replacing the car's license tag or removing it. I just don't want the original one used.

Mwah? I actually did a lot of work on the interior. Once I got to a point where the whole thing looked OK to me, I paid a bit more attention to the plethora of car ads on TV and looked around at some major car sites. Didn't take long to realize that tinted windows are pretty much the norm for car ads. I suppose it's often done to disquise an occupant, but more likely because they're selling the exterior style. Hard to say, as I've never done car pix. What surprised me in a couple of the other entries was that the driver's reflection remained in the interior rear view mirror. (There goes my claim to paying attention to detail ) Anyway, this was fun and I look forward to more entries. There's a lot more work to this kind of thing than I ever imagined.

and that's one of the reasons i said this was going to be devious. there are reflections and 'lights' all over the place. if you're really going to remove all signs of the street, then i would say you have to remove all signs of the street lighting. ok, that's nit-picky to death, but studio lighting would be different.

the reflections, the glares, the shadows, the interior where the guy was sitting...it's a lot more work than one might first think. and all that glass...ugh! i think T has been taking lessons from Ro in sadism i may have to enter just so i can play judge.

(btw, lonnie, i think you set the standard here so far. excellent work!)

Can't speak to devious, as your comment was valid. And I agree about the complex nature of this challenge. To reiterate, it's my first contest entry here at RP. My initial thought was to wait 'til the last minute to submit as a comparative challenge of this type would seem to favor those who do so since they can tweak their submission based on previous entries. Being a compulsive person though, I just jumped in the frey when I was happy with my initial result. Winning has never really been an impetus for my efforts. I just love doing the work. Furthermore, I probably will be disqualified since I took liberties with the "white background" instruction. I figured the license plate thing had already done that, but TPaul ultimately allowed that flexibility.

Let me just say that I'm anxious to see your entry, Craig.

I think physics suggests that the reflection is of a passenger, and I know one of the contestants snuck himself into a ferarri.

Dang, I knew there was a logical explanation. So much for my visualization skills (P.S. Actually, that's me! I hid in the back seat. Sorry to be so intrusive.)
