Thanks! Lower Grand in downtown Los Angeles and under the 6th St Bridge. I wouldn't go alone, and you should always be alert. Lots of transients. They are both popular spots to shoot in LA, so you will run into other photographers and cars doing the same thing, so it's a little comforting.

There is very little traffic on Lower Grand, but I did go late to avoid the little traffic there was. In the 30 min I was there maybe 10 cars passed.

Nice set of pics. Would like to give some specific CC on pics 1,2,5 & 7. Personally I think you have cropped them on the wrong side. There should be room / space in front of the car but you have either got the car central or the empty space behind the car. Same with photographing animals, you need space for them be going into or looking at. Just a visual thing the improves the composition.

Great pictures! The car looks great! What camera gear did you use and software to edit? I can't believe I still haven't made it down there to get a few pics, and I live 30 mins away!

You have until tonight to do it, because it's being blown up tomorrow!!!

I used a Canon 6D and a 24-105mm L lens. I use Lightroom for all my processing and Photoshop for bracket merging and other tweaks, although there is no photoshopping in any of these photos. Only one HDR merge of bracketed shots.
