I signed up to the PhotoFriday challenge a few months ago, but this is the first one I've entered - the challenge is 'Automotive'. http://www.photofriday.com/
I took this on the M25 back in February whilst on our way back from Folkestone. It was cold, dark, and raining hard. How to while away a couple of hours with a camera bag at my feet? Easy...
On our way down to Folkestone the week before, I'd also been taking photos from the car. I discovered that cars are very dusty environments when a huge piece of fluff landed on my sensor! I was at the start of a weeks holiday and for some unaccountable reason I'd not packed any means of cleaning it. Fortunately that evening in the hotel, I managed to remove it by carefully blowing on to it. I learnt a valuable lesson there.
Incidentally, I'm looking at this on my LCD monitor and my laptop side-by-side. They are both calibrated, although the laptop less reliably so. The images look completely different - the colours are much more vibrant on my monitor. I hope the colour on your monitor is closer to that than my laptop!
