    Great photo JJ. One of the more difficult locations to get too I'm thinking.

    Yeah .. even with the flaws contained within the image, it's still up there as one of the best ever.(I have a copy of the car being driven as a desktop image on my PC)

    Even tho the image is iconic, I still think it's not immune to CC tho .. for the next photographer up that way that feels the need to do it better.

    1. focus better next time. Focus point at some random plane forward to the vehicle is interesting as an abstract visual concept, but if the car is truly the subject, it's best to try to get focus closer to the car.
    2. try to take a bit of external lighting kit. Obviously the Sun is much harsher in such a rarefied atmospheric condition, so something powerful may the way to go. A bit of sidelighting would have added nicely to the overall rendering.
    3. It's nice to see that the car is a working model, and not just a plasticky looking prized possession. But! .. take some cleaning kit and clean up the dust off the tyres. It'd just look like the photo shoot was done with a bit more professionalism.

    Apart from those 3 niggles, it's amazing to think back to how good film used to be!
