awesome shot! my only minor nitpick would be that the reflections on the side are a little distracting, but overall it's a great shot!

Really nice rig shot, the red 'pops' on my screen, so your post processing is good too ... and a nice car (I owned a Schnitzer S3 Convertible based on this model with a 2.7 liter engine once ... awesome car)

About the reflections on the side ... I know I always advice people to use a polar filter ... but hey, a car has shiny paint, so it should reflect ... dilemma I know :oops:

Love me some E30's. Killer shot. Is it a rigged shot or shot from another car?

It's a rolling shot, from another car.

Oddly enough I actually had my polarizing filter on for this shot. I guess I must have not had it set right. I might try removing some of the reflections in post.

How does the exposure look? My shots are typically too dark I've been told so I'm trying to get better.

It's definitely the clearest I've ever gotten. Typically I can get the front of the car in focus but the rear will be blurred somewhat.

Wow, great shot and the reflections don't bother me. The low angle is awesome! How fast were you going when the shot was taken?

if you're bluring the back of the car while the front is crisp, you are out of your DOF, im assuming you're shooting the lens close to wide-open? I'd bump the F-stop up a little so you can get the whole car sharp, might fix the problem
