thanks, If you are interested in trying this, Here are a few tips.

find a very smooth driving surface

lots of stop and go lights. this photo was taken at a 6 lane intersection.

I was traveling around 30MPH for this photo, speed definately makes different effects.

A Tripod is definately required. I have a custom floor mounted pod in my van. But you can just as easy use a regular tri pod perhaps secure it with seat belts or bungie cords.. just make sure it doesnt rock or tip.
6-10 seconds of exposure seems to be the best from the results i have.

i would also recommend letting someone else drive. I spent 2 hours driving around to get this shot, had to stop every few frames to make sure the lighting was correct camrea in focus etc.....

let me know if you try it id like to see the results.

Great feeling of motion. The colors look a bit overprocessed.

Not quite sure if I am digging the color tones but I think the shot is cool. Hope it is doing well for you.

very neat effect. I love the colors outside. I wish you'd taken the navigation system off the dashboard though, its a little distracting.

Love the streaks - Maybe could have been better to tilt the mirror so we could see the drivers eyes - Just to make a focal point?

Exclude the car interior and your score would have been off the charts!
