This is a similar shot to my only ribbon shot in the acronyms challenge. I wanted a different angle and a more dynamic composition that feels like the car's coming into the shot rather then moving with it.

I don't think it's as good as the original but I don't have time to re-shoot so it will have to be good enough! I'm really hoping for a 6.5 but i'm not sure this is good enough for it. The camera was held on to the cars roll bar with a DSLR Zoom Gorilla pod! I got it for my 30th Birthday last month and it's fantastic!

the movment is nice. i like how the photo doesn't show any evidence of anyone taking the picture (no reflection in the mirror, no legs in the seat) very interesting...

Great sharp photo. I think we would be able to see driver's face in the mirror if you could place the camera in different place.

Now that is some speed! However the illusion was done, you have "hit the nail on the head". 9
