Next time before you shoot the car ... wash it. (joking) Nice car ...

I think that dividing the image in half (50% Car and 50% road) .. causes one's mind (in my case was left of it), and eyes to shift from right to left wondering what is the main subject of the photo, car or road. Fortunately, the is car brighter and more reflective than the road and the eyes settle there ... I think the image would communicate "shiny, mean, black BMW" better, had the car been more dominate in the image, either by a different camera position or by cropping a bit on the right (maybe to where the left edge of the road meets the dirt).

Nice shot, I love it. Never seen a road like that before, is it concrete?
I'm a Bimmer man myself- owning a 318i E30.

I would love to see a side profile shot as well- showing the tradmark BM long front door and front wheel pushed right to the very front of the car. Classic cars.

Just for fun, wouldn't it be fun to stick a girl down the road just a little.:smile: ( photoshop her in)

I'm not sure what the "correct" shot should be with no formal training, but I like it. To me, I first see the car and enjoy it's lines and then the hood reflection and then mentally drive it down the road to the vanishing point and beyond. I also like the dark and gritty processing.
