BRZ at Night

My car is one of my favorite subjects.  Not only because I like the way it looks and drives.  But there aren't many other large and interesting foreground subjects that I can freely position to suit my composition.

For this shot, I was experimenting with light painting (using the screen on my phone) and long exposures.  I went to the local park well after sunset, and took dozens of shots.  It was trial and error to get the right amount of light combined with a smooth reflection on the side of the car (from me walking with my phone screen reflecting off the car).

The final result is the result of merging three images in Photoshop.  The sky is from one frame, while the foreground, wheels, and car combine elements from two of the light painting exposures.
