Driving around in a circle in Wal-mart parking lot for about an hour... tried about 4 different views and went with my favorite.

Cropped, slight sharpen, bumped saturation just a little, resized, and saved for the web.

For everyone that was interested: I got some soft pads and attached them to my tripod legs. Took some ratchet straps and attached the tripod above and below the trunk. I used my remote and set a 15 second interval to take photos while I was driving.

This was all the photographer did: I got some soft pads and attached them to my tripod legs. Took some ratchet straps and attached the tripod above and below the trunk. I used my remote and set a 15 second interval to take photos while I was driving.

WOW!!! Now that is going the extra mile to get a great photo! It's going too far...maybe, but I love the creativity. Awesome photo and a fantastic technique. By the way, in what city does WalMart have a circular driveway attached to a multi-level parking lot??

Wow. I just read how you obtained this shot. Very impressive. If I had voted during transportation I would have given this one a 10. Great job. Love the colors.

Very nicely done. The lights above look great. The car and wheels you used are good too and the horizontal position of the car.

I know this is a copy shot.
08/16/2006 11:46:12 AM
Wow! Really awesome photo. It's even better than my previous favorite, "Midnight Run" by C-town driver:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/226/thumb/82512.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/226/thumb/82512.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I've wanted to take a photo like this for a while, but my car has too many dents and stuff now for it to be nice enough for the shot. I wondered if Midnight Run had inspired you as well.

Congrats on a fabulous image and the ribbon!

Congratulations on your first ribbon Russell! You captured a wonderful image.

A terrific shot. Great concept. Great execution. Congrats.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 10:54:23 AM
This is a great example of something photographically inspiring on this site. Attaching the camera to a moving object - your car nonetheless, is a fun idea with excellent results. I'm really glad that it got on the front page.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 09:52:50 AM
Congratulations on your first ribbon and personal best! Great shot!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 09:19:49 AM
Wow! Great shot, and congrats on the ribbon! You deserve a ribbon for attaching a EOS-1D Mk II to the outside of your car, and driving in circles with it hanging out there. More guts than I've got, that's for sure...

Congratulations again!

Wonderful, right down to the smallest detail of having the car spotless. Congrats! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 12:42:46 AM
Congrats. Very stylish. There is something to be said for doing well with a common subject although that car is uncommonly sweet! :P

08/16/2006 12:29:07 AM
SCORE!!!. Now this is transportation in style. I think your "Action" shot singlehandedly motivates me to "go up" more often. I always think this kind of shot speaks volumes about the quality of the photographer. I bet in one year, we will say you are force to be reckoned with. But at this point, I got ya by a few ribs........

a very swish and swanky picture, and no mistake. the car is nice and shiny, and is a perfect choice for this sort of picture. the colour of the car also complements the concrete road and the lights. would love to see the setup on this. 9.

Very showroom elegance - one of the best I've seen here! Good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a gorgeous image I could easily see as a print ad. The clarity is excellent, the movement has been captured very well. I love the motion trails (they add so much energy and light to this image) and would love to know how you made this all work out so well. Excellent control of light and composition too. I'd seriously see if you could get this used by the company somehow, you've really made your car look and feel energized and phenominal. I'm bumping from a 7 to a 9 and adding a favorite.
