Photography Death Match
By +Tamara Pruessner   
Theme: Cars
Round 3/3
+David Kunzler vs +Cora Triton 

For my last photo I visited a motor racing workshop. They tune cars for example for the 24-hour-race at the Nürburgring. I used my fisheye lens and a gritty  processing - and it's really black, white  and orange, no selective coloring... I do like the footprints in the foreground!

Round 1:

Cora: http://goo.gl/HKUg96

Round 2:

Cora: http://goo.gl/tsuWbb

Round 3:

I highly recommend the other battle:
+Stephanie Binney vs +Wade Brooks !

Photography Death Match

Theme: Cars
Round 1/3
+David Kunzler vs +Cora Triton 

Cars + Germany = Mercedes Benz! Fortunately I know the  owner of this beautiful old car. We borrowed it and drove to a special place to take this  photo. Cars are not allowed there but even the police  was friendly ;-).

It's a 170 S cabrio A (that means only two seats). Enjoy

NASA invites you -- and everyone else on the planet -- to take part in a worldwide celebration of Earth Day this year with the agency's #GlobalSelfie event. Five NASA missions designed to gather critical data about our home planet are launching to space this year. NASA is marking this big year for Earth science with a campaign called Earth Right Now, and as part of this campaign the agency is asking for your help this Earth Day, April 22.

Round 2/3
+David Kunzler vs +Cora Triton 

I have to post the second photo now because I'll be offline till the late evening. Again a Mercedes Benz, this time a 220 S "Ponton". I tried different exposures and lenses with a tripod from the backseat - difficult to get the car sharp and have motion outside...

Thank you for comments and plusses - that was my first tiny planet. I used a 360° photo sphere taken with my Nexus 4 and learned that it's really easy to create this in photoshop:
1. Make the image square (without constraining the proportions)
2. Turn the photo upside down
3. Apply the polar coordinates filter
That's about it :-)!
