I'll vote for the Toyota seen as I suggested it.

Both are great photos (which is why they were chosen) but for me the Astra just pulls ahead.

If you have any suggestions do still post them and I will open the contest later on tonight.

I have posted suggestions.
I have chosen the Astra, because it's a good photo for many impressions!

Agreed. The car looks very nice, but what's the background supposed to be?

That's a very nice chop Bryan. Perhaps the space between the back of the door and the rear wheel could be shortened a lit, but still, not bad at all.

Here's mine. Nothing creative, just a 3-door version of the Astra with Ferrari-inspired coat of red. Oh, and frame-less windows.

ACcartoons - Awesome! I love the old Opel Manta.
TheophilusChin - Looks very stylish, but the VXR front end looks too messy for my liking.

Theo, the quality is great as always. I could've expected more originality, but great chop, non-the-less.




I'm annoyed that I didn't see that messy spot in front of the rear wheel while I was still working on my chop. I suppose that's what you get when you rush things.

BryanRW | 3 | Big improvement. I could see that going into production today!
S2 | 4 | The shape is there, but a unique face wouldn't go unnoticed.
Theophiluschin | 5 | Very subtle but very effective.
blackstripe | 2 | You have amazing skills, but I just didnt see that in this chop.
phantomex | 5 | I love the idea and the application.
accurick | 5 | Very realistic. Nicely done!
Porsche-Power | 4 | Quality chop, but it looks awkward somehow.



By the way. Does anyone know what happened to SpeedFreak?

BryanRW - 4 - Good chop!
S2 - 5 - Love it.
ACcartoons - 3 - Love the idea and pillarless design, but still something about the execution. The proportions are a bit odd.
TheophilusChin - 4 - Good clean chop. The OPC parts make it look too buy though.
phantomex - 4 - Does look like a Mazda, but they dropped that look for the dopey grin.
accurick - 5 - Awesome.
Porsche-Power - 3 - Cool idea, very concept-like in execution, but the color does nothing for me, and still looks a bit messy in some areas (wheel arches).

I'll take that as a no. bm88, the Photoshop Contest & Voting Thread needs editing.

Aw crap. Yeah I didn't edit the rules thread correctly but thankfully you've all done it right!

I've no idea what happened to Speedfreak and its something I've thought on a few occasions. If anyone knows him please get in touch because its a shame to loose someone as successful as him.
