How do you do that color/bw effect m8? That last pic looks really cool.

Thanks for the comments guys.

The b/w and other effects - I just block out the area around the car (Polygonal selection tool) and then either Desaturate that area of the photo completely, or partially (Hue/Saturation under the Image - Adjustments menu of Photoshop)

Other stuff, like the red lane markings on the old S8 pic I can really blare out.

On the tuned A8 D3 I spent spent about 20-25 mins on each shot, desaturating the background, accenting the chrome, front and rear lights, windows, wheels, using Contrast and Brightness settings.

Taken with a 4 year old Sony MCV-CD500 5.0 megapixel camera btw, nothing fancy, that thing was obsolete when I bought it in 2003 [:)] Used a shutter speed between 150 and 350 throughout the city, thats the only way to get any good shots with cars zipping around. Still, the "success" rate of the shots was about 90%.
