there are enough flat surfaces to fix the suction cups. Windshield, sidewindows, and so on! why does it have to horizontal? Vertical works great! you just need one oder two more cups!

Problem is I only have 2 cups. I'm afraid putting on the side will add more weight or pull to the suction cup.

I assume he wants horizontal as he wants a side or 3/4 view where as sticking it on the side of the van would only get you in front or behind. But yeah the windshield, hood, area above the windshield, and the roof if you get a step ladder would all be pretty good.

Yep, I'm looking for 3/4 view. I'm afraid the bus will look weird or out of shape if the suction cup is placed on top.

Well done dude! Saw this car at Import Alliance, too hawt.

Here's another from my shoot with the GTR. Again I know, low angle, but came out decent. Cloning could have been better though.

I have to agree....the EXIF was removed but I'm guessing that's about a half second to a full second exposure. You need one of two things happening car+rig moving faster, or slow down that shutter to about 2.5-5 seconds (depending on how daring your feeling) and try it out there.

I don't think its bad, more blur in the wheels would be nice.

Most of the "pro" shots I see have a lot less blur to the shots than people starting out put in.

Take into account that the buildings in the background are extremely far away (If they're in fact even there.....a lot of pro work people crop in back drops and skys.)

Also by no means was I saying the shot of the BMW was not "good", I think it still works quite well.
