Dude, it fits perfectly on the iPhone. The only thing that sucks, is it's only displayed on the lock screen. The home screen doesn't allow you to set a background, so it's just black. I have seen hacks for it, tho. Maybe someday I'll get around to hacking it in there!

Gotta admit, even though I teach photography, I really admire it. It's well seen, well composed, great light. I'd lose the the fading rule, though. It makes it look like a switch cover. Still a great pic. Thanks.

That is a fantastic shot. Wish it was a little less blown out at the far end, but it doesn't detract from the shot at all, might even add to the effect!

its kinda cool to have an engine shot and then the same car be the background in the same pic hehe

i have another one as well thats pretty much clear all around, but for this shot i wanted the close part to be clear and back to be a little bit more blurry, so i used the macro on the camera and focused on engine, and have the rest be there but nt as clear not to take away from the shot.

I was referring to the off-meter light coming through the windshield, as opposed to the depth-blur. But again, it helps to isolate the car, i suppose a blue-sky or what not might have taken away from the subject.

I like the high key background and the lighting is excellent! Good shot.
