Shot with -0.7 exposure compensation.

Thanks to my wife for driving along side this car on the QEW while I hung my camera out the window, as close to the pavement as possible. We were going 100 km/h, so it was pretty windy. I shot a lot of cars this way during our drive, looking for something good for this challenge. The bright yellow & shine on this Mazda Protege stood out from all the other cars I shot. You can see the reflection of my wife's Saturn. It would've been funny if we were in my car, as it is also a Mazda Protege. Maybe that's why I was partial to this shot, gotta like the Zoom-Zoom.

Heh. Nice idea. I did a series of similar shots once during a looooong drive, but I was safely inside the car, not hanging the camera out the window.
