Thanks guys.  

This was shot out of the back of a BMW hatch, with my good old Nikon D700 and a very steady hand.

Some great shots!

Curious about your lighting, especially in pic 2924. That couldn't have been an ordinary hot-shoe flash, but how much of a lighting rig can you have out the back of a hatch?

Please, do tell  :sip:

<edit> - or just photoshop?

Thanks!  Ja 2924 is the only pic I have tried fill-in flash, but liked the natural light option better... I used one location flash head without any light shapers.   The other shots I played with the shadows and dark areas in photoshop.

The Ducati shoot I used one head as well, but with a beauty dish.. it worked very well.

The natural light is nicer, but 2924 would have probably been an unusable shot without it - good call and well executed.
