thanks Andrew, quick question for you...for the main shot I use a 30 second exposure at around F11 depending on the light.

For the shorter exposure to get the detail in the ground would you increase the aperture to keep the exposure of the shot?

I just find that if i reduce the shutter to say 10seconds then at F11 the shot is too dark.

Hope that makes sense!

Being a natural light shooter, and doing almost all of my rig shots at sunset, I start at f16 and work my way down to f9 as the light fades. I never end up using anything under f11 if I don't have to because I believe that one of the selling points of the rig shot is the sharpness of the car front to back.

Having said that, f13 tends to give me my sharpest shots (Nikon 20mm), and I get my detail shots of the ground, wheels, and car there. But I'm using 2-4 seconds for them. I normally don't have to go past 10 seconds, sometimes I need 20-30, but it's rare. In your case, I would shorten the shutter, not increase the aperture. 10 seconds at f11 being too dark means you're shooting in the dark, using and ND, or your polarizer is super dark.

Got a new one, I accidentally saved over my master copy after I merged the layers to make 1 final edit (accidentally saved instead of save as). There are some spots I would like to clean it up, but I will have to start from scratch. We are are calling it "The last run" because the owner of the silver car may be selling it this spring.
