This new Jaguar X-Type was the 1st prize in a Christmas day competition at Festival Walk - a large shopping center in Kowloon Tong.
Many parents took their kids to Festival Walk over the Christmas period, because it had the tallest (70-foot high) Christmas tree in Hong Kong.
Of course, Santa was also there, but most of the young kids seemed to prefer playing inside the Jaguar, as if it was their new toy!
The red comes from the ribbon which was tied across the car's bonnet.

A very well captured detail, Andrew. Good reflection on the silver bonnet, and even the "metallic" details of the silver paint can be spotted. I like the ribbon, it almost looks like a "red carpet" rolled out for the bonnet figure. The only thing is I find the crop on the right just a tad too tight; I feel I'm not seeing everything. But that's just nitpicking, I really like this shot.

Waht I like hee is the red ribbon, which creates a nice diagonal. Very nice close-uo of the Jaguar. Did you win?

That's a good 1st prize... I went on holiday to Sth America one time and with their Chrismats competition you could win a Cessna 182 areoplane! Good composition, although you could maybe have used a slightly smaller aperture so the whole jaguar is in focus, while still having an out of focus background.

Fine detail from a great car Andrew. The red is well for the total impression.

Very nice element for the composition. The gray metal colour of the car makes a good combination with red glimmering ribbon. The colour shades on the 'jaguar' they are just beautiful.

Hi Andrew, The distinctive "leaping Jaguar" mascot is well captured, the red ribbon has served a dual purpose here, first it catches the eye & secondly as a background it isolates the image perfectly. Very effective.
