I don't know about this one. It's obviously much more of a "snapshot" but the theme was road trip and the fact is, the drive is pretty amazing at times. This was taken somewhere around Grants Pass, Oregon. I considered cropping the dashboard and windshield wiper out, but decided not to because I think it's a good frame of reference. Plus half the photo glare is coming from the windshield.
Woke up today in Portland, Oregon. This first photo was taken just before the moon set this morning. I had to run to the car to retrieve a toothbrush for someone, and this beautiful full moon was my reward. I wanted all the fences and power lines cropped out, but that wasn't possible. I still think it's pretty good considering this was a hotel parking lot!

One issue I have with this photo is the extent to which the background is blurred. That in combination with the lighting on the foreground makes the photo look a little too 3D...like I'm looking at it through cheap 3D glasses. Usually I like a blurred background on a photo like this, but not so much here.
