i don't see why it wouldn't. prob is yours focuses too much on the cars imo. i think there needs to be more focus on the urban surrounds but w/e.

1st entry is fine. As long as the photo does not have any parts removed or added it is OK. I agree though it would look better with a little less processing. Want to try posting one up that hasn't been edited quite as much?

As for the photo of the RX-8 and G35, yes it is allowed. Any interpretation of the theme is allowed, however, assume you will be judged partially on how well others feel your photo conveys the chosen theme.

other than curves, desaturation and color correction, only 1 other thing was done to it: posterization. not much i can do to process it "less"
