Had the pleasure to shoot one of my all time favorite cars, and one that I'd never laid eyes upon before yesterday. I had about 1.5 hrs alone with the car in a cramped paint curing room. The windows were taped over, and I was able to control the light relatively well. These are a mix of light painting and 580EXII.

C&C appreciated!

Good job removing the background in #1. I wish that the shadow was a little lighter & softer so it didn't merge with the tires.

I agree with Tony. #4 looks pretty good with some modeling in the side to show the contour of the body.
The walls behind & to the right of it look clean, & I wonder if you took some shots with the light on those walls to reflect in the body?

Nice shots! The last one is my favorite. I have never seen one of these BMW's before. It has some Ferrari-esque styling to it. Reminds me of a Ferrari GTS mixed with a 355.
