Some automotive shots I took back in 2008 that I did not edit until now....

This one was fairly straight forward, I rolled down my window while in the back seat of a car to take this....

My cousin had put together a DIY automotive rig with nothing more than a mono pod, some zip ties and two suction cups and the end result is what you see here!

Really like these a lot... do you have any pics of the monopod rig? and what speed were you going? Nice PP too... all around great!

I don't have a shot of the rig on the shots above (I recently switched to another computer) but here's some shots to give you a peek on to what the rig looks like

Aaah Subaru, the Pentax of the automotive world (I'm told). Those are simply pro-level pictures. PPed and everything. Excellent work.

wow!! I was wondering how those shots were made. Hav always wanted to do that with my own car

Didn't realize so much post-processing was involved! (looking at the 'before and after' pics)

I always love car shots - these are very cool. Note that Subaru actually saw a sales increase in 2008.

Very well executed! These images are very hard to do it well.

Thanks for sharing these images

thanks for posting your pics of the rig... in this instance seeing your before and after make it more impressive rather than in most other cases where it's underwhelming. Well done again!

I see you host on Flickr... would you mind posting a link to your photothread?
