Photography Competition: Pro Class – Statics *Updated*

Static shots are very difficult photos to take, and the pro class will have to be spot on because the photos here will HAVE to be perfectly framed and composed because there is no action or movement to energise a shot. If your voting, you need to be looking for focus, balanced colours or shades, and overall layout or ‘composition’. So with that in mind, I present the first Pro Class category: Statics. Same rules as before, in the order we received them, vote in the thread here, only one vote and multiple voting with different user accounts from the same IP will disqualify that photo. Enjoy!

I parked the car and took a photo and this is how it worked out.  Could have done with a bit more depth of field but I had no tripod to get a steady shot...plus I was stood in the road LOL.
