I appologize if I come off rude, but I'm just being honest.
Like I said these were fast pics!
Im a professional photographer by trade. I have prime glass out the ying yang. from nikon 24/ 1.2 to 200 /2.2
The focus here is not the Fu%^&ing blur background! JEZZZ! it's the CAR!
If I'd been requested or hired to shoot this car for $$$ then I'd scoped out a great landscape area and shot it like I know how to shoot without having to blur the background in respect to my neighborhood!
