You're right, Greg. It wasn't a perfect catch, but it was fun learning to set the shutter speed about right to freeze the car and blur the back and foreground. I also just liked the effect, catching the car between the hill in my yard and the colorful trees in the next.
Looks great Tom! Perfect or not, you've really isolated the car against the background - and it's got a perfect feeling of motion.
I was looking at the door seam though, and the line around the gas cap, and they show some motion, but the front of the door, and the fender seam behind the headlight are perfectly still. Now I'm trying to model what conditions might have caused that, and I;m gonna guess the car was turning?
