Hopefully those newly updated photos, are void of any photoshop work (i.e. the eyelids on your headlights).....

I still don't understand why you submitted that, with that.

I don't know either. I took my pic with my phone camera, no mods. The only thing I could do is use Paint or Photobuckets editor, and it's not much to go on! Though I'm getting my mothers old camera this weekend. It's a decent Kodak 10MP with a good size optical zoom (one of the 'kind of DSLR') styles. Better than my phone, at any rate!

I hate those 'kind of DSLR' cameras. I say either yes or no. Nothing in between. Of course it's better than the phone haha!

I had a Cannon T1i for several years with a stock 18-55mm lens and the autofocus on the lens started having problems and wont' let you go to manual mode. I recently bought a Cannon Rebel T4i with a 18-135mm lens. Pricy but AWESOME.

Here's a link to my Photobucket; IMG_3795_tonemapped_zps8ff92530.jpg Photo by caseitman | Photobucket

That picture wasn't photoshoped... I don't even have/own Photoshop. Next month I'll put up different pictures because the snow over here in Colorado has finally melt, if not a red car would have been a white blob.

That's what she just got to replace this one. My previous camera was her camera before the one I'm getting. It was a nice camera...in 2004. 4MP. 1" display...

I just question why one would do that, that's all.

Eventually one may see your car in person, and ask.... "umm, I thought your heads had eyebrows, or eyelids?" and call you out on it.

Carry on then......

Those pictures on Photo bucket were just taken about a week ago, now looking at it I can kinda see where you guys are coming from....probably shouldn't have picked that picture as my voting picture, but I will defiantly keep that in mind next time. As for someone seeing my car I don’t think that’s going to happen because no one is in Colorado that’s on here LOL.

^Are you sure you want to go with that?

Running your voting image through exifdata.com yields:

The original picture was taken 11/03/2012
The picture was edited with Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0 Windows on 12/01/2012

And I found the original image (sans eyebrows):
