If thats what your going for then sure, but thats not what I saw.Your analogy would work if my car had no reflections.. and was on a solid black background. The reflections create contrast and the edges of the car are clearly defined... It doesn't just "blur" away into the background.
What you are describing would be more like so:
While the picture below is not the best representation you can clearly see the contrast between foreground and background
Just food for thought.
