I guess what we are talking about here is something I noticed and did indeed set up a tripod to test.

I can focus on the writing around the cockpit, but cant see either end of the car as sharply as the middle and the leading edge of the tyres is quite a ways out of focus.

Focus on the tyres and the body is out of the range.

I'm glad everyone has this challenge, I thought it was just me.

Also found out that cars photographed or filmed going right to left are considered to be coming home, and cars going left to right are thought to be driving away!

Punched in a big yellow floodlight here, was going for an afternoon sun type look. Apart from a little contrast change to make the photo look older...ish, I try and snap these off without editing too much
