I have to agree. The equipment only matters to a certain extent. But quality lenses, and lenses meant for the type of shot you are going for are whats needed more than anything.

Personally, I think its a great photo. I think one improvement might be to use a lens like a 50mm f1.4 . This would allow you to blur the background a bit and cause the car to stand out more. The f1.4 would decrease the exposure time required, which might prevent the background glow from being too bright. (While allowing the flash to still highlight the car).

Anyway, thanks for sharing and keep em coming!

Thanks! I actually have a better 50mm f/1.2L, but for this particular shot we used a longer lens, aperture was closed to 8.0, I am not sure what would have happened if we opened it all the way to 1.2 or 1.4, might have been overexposed.

I read through the whole thread and some of the comments make me a chuckle a bit inside. It is amazing how many folks think that it is the equipment ie-Camera/lense/flash, and other accessories, that make the photo/photographer lol.
I am a member of several popular photography sites and even graphic design sites, there are many folks in those sites that are lusting after the most expensive equipment and lots are also lusting after full frame bodies, thinking that they are better.
Most of that is a farce, I have learned that full frame cameras have there place in photography just as much as a cropped sensor camera does. Ya full frame cameras are nice, but do you need them? I have many good friends in the photography hobby and many of them are pro, the ones that shoot full frame usually have an equal amount of cropped camera bodies as well, they like to have a good balance.
Full frame cameras are huge cameras and along with that they are a bit heavy, do you want to carry one of those around all day? to me a full frame has some advantages such as for landscape photography, the wide angle lenses give the images better angle of view than on a crop camera, however when it comes to telephoto lenses a crop camera is a better choice (example-on average a 300mm lens on a crop body will in reality be around a 450mm lens, and just a 300 mm on a full frame)
Folks keep in mind that different size sensor camera bodies all have their niche in photography.
On another note, when it comes to any kind of photography equipment, it really doesn't matter what you use/shoot with/or spent your money on.
For example I shoot Pentax, I started out with an entry level camera (K-x) with a basic set of kit zooms, I learned photography all over again on this camera, I even took many awesome shots. Not that I moved up to the K-5 (more of an enthusiasts camera) and a few better lenses I find that the camera takes the same kind of awesome shots, but this camera has many more bells and whistles than the K-x, but I still have the K-x and shoot with it.
Even though I shoot with Pentax I still like all brands of cameras, I dont look up to or down on any other photographer because of the type/brand of their equipment, however I DO look at their work and make my assessments there. I have seen images taken by major photographers that will just blow you away, and many times these such images were taken on crappy little cameras. As a photographer I have learned that you can either spend all your time and money chasing the most advanced expensive camera, or even the nest big thing so you can just show off your equipment and at the same time be outdoing the Joneses, or you can just appreciate what you have in camera equipment and get out there and enjoy your hobby and get some awesome shots, it's up to you.
I would rather see beautiful shots like the OPs than be concerned with the equipment he used, I could give a ratz azz what he used whether it be a Canon/Nikon/Pentax/Sony/Samsun/ect... that kind of crap dont matter, I would rather see one shot from these cameras, then see a hundred shots of the camera, who cares?
Full frame, cropped frame, just get out there and shoot, and always keep in mind that the most important equipment/aspect of photography is the part that goes right behind the viewfinder of the camera-YOU
Awesome shot OP, you really worked for that shot and it shows.
Thank you, thank you thank you, you far too kind.
