    That the Pont de Normandie, no?

    Years ago, I just stopped the car in the middle of the bridge to make a similar picture.

    A Mk II Jetta?

    I shot a few pics from the car - here is what I found:
    - blurr canbe really cool if its the right blurr
    - unless you can't do it otherwise, or you can use the interior of the car in the composition, roll down the window, lean out if you have to. Polarizer may help, but I doubt it willhelp much as hte outside is brighter than the inside if shooting through the glass
    - you can take neat photos of other cars that are moving close to the same speed as you with that "dramatic" blurred background.
    - Use a Holga, then it really won't matter

    Peter.

    PS One more thing - sometimes, you catch the rear-view mirror in the shot, it adds a neat touch to the picture by showing you taking the photo.

    Panning when shooting out the side window can work well. The subject is in focus and everything else blurs. Just don't try it while you're the driver. Drop your seat back all the way to give you more room to swing when you pan. I've done this with an old aerial camera quite well a few times.

    actually, I've done this but was using one of those new fang-dangled devices, so I can't show you the results here. I did get some nifty night shots while following cars down the freeway.

    The aerial cameras I worked with moved the film at the film plane at a preset rate depending on altitude and speed. We had a special slide rule for calculating a host of things related to aerial photography in order to make unblurred overlapping stereo pairs.
