This BMW M2 was photographed outdoors at sunset in Scottsdale, Arizona. Post production was done in our Tempe, Arizona studio.

I'm always on the lookout for background images. I shoot roads and scenery and keep those images handy for my retouching work. This background is from the wind farms in Palm Desert, California.

I left the natural sun flares in this shot and dropped the upper half of the background. I painted the fog and blue sky.
