What time of day did you take it? Really like the colour as well.

Bokeh

I believe the glass might be the extra special, tilt-twirl-spin-on-a-dime, f/0.2 (negative), ultra vintage Guassian Blur.

I could be wrong.

I like that "toy" car look that the blurred background gives... I took some pix of my car and then used a depth of field effect on PSPx2 and it looked like a similar effect to what you have going on here. I really like the look of the sky in the background too. Nice light as others have mentioned. So what are you guys paying for gas down there? Sometimes I think my v-6 is thirsty... can only cringe at what I'd get with an 8 and my lead foot

The blurred BG seam (composite?) is a little strong but I too really like the "toy" look!

I agree, perhaps more blur of the blur on the seam would not draw the eye so much.

Still a good use of bayside carparks.

very cool shot. I am interested in learning how you got the effect. I am going with some creative photoshop work. It almost looks like a toy car for sure.

The out-of-focus area is very much obviously fake. You should work on making this aspect seem less obvious.

I like the colours and contrast, though.
