Joshua,

It is almost an achievement to be at the latter part of the challenge Do not take it seriously.

I will be flat out in my reply, your image while it follows the rule does not bring me anything significant or impacting or interesting. Ok I didn't know that such a coin exist and I only knew of route 66 from my sons "cars movie", maybe its a different route as well most score I would have given you is 2.5, on a good day.

Do remember that most of voters here are also learners, if an images gives the voter the thought of "Hey why didn't I think of that", thus they complement you of a good score, that is how I look at entries.

As for the winning image... hmm, I honestly don't know if its a cut and paste job (don't torture me for the ignorance, I don't have photoshop), I know of a feature in photomatix that will highlight a certain area and you can change the exposure,  but seeing it in fullscreen  zoomed mode, showed really bad unfinished retouching. The essence of the image is there, the entrant could have clean it up a bit.

br,

Norberto
