Thanks for the comments, I actually like the halo, it's kind of like having a small flash behind the car I feel, but I understand not everybody likes it.
As for the reflection ... the puddle wasn't that big to be honest, I would have loved to get the entire car in the reflection, but it hadn't rained that much before ... we were about 20 minutes into the shoot when it started pouring down for a a few minutes, however we had already moved the car to another location on the industrial site ... by that time security was driving around so I didn't take a chance getting back to the first location ...

Nice shot Mark, and nice pp. It's also cool for you to detail what you did to make the shot really pop. However, the rear photo on that page has a huge hot-spot on the driver's quarter. Why? You just got through telling people how to correct this with a negative EV shot+layer mask.
An oversight of the moment I'm afraid
Changed the shot with a different one that suits the tutorial better I think, the blue sky wasn't really what I wanted anyway ...
