    Finally the final shot :-D

    Today was a great day to take the final picture.
    My idea was to use a background image which I printed out on my plotter in the office, a background that part of a Dakar race car model, the final print size was 36x48 inches
    I hung the poster on my brother's shed, in the fading sun light, couple of nails and it was hanging long enough until I was able to take two pictures, before the poster came down.

    I used a thin box with grey construction paper on it, to simulate the salt flats.
    and I propped this box up on a plastic tote, and a footstool, to get the height I needed.

    I zoomed in close enough to have the car in focus and the background out of focus, I think the effect worked very well.


    Hope you like it
