I have actually seen this Ferrari 458 Spider many times. I first saw it at the Cars & Couture event at the Tampa Jet Center in November 2013. Then the next week I saw it driving in my own neighborhood in St. Petersburg! I regulary saw it after that, especially on Friday afternoons. So I recognized it right away when I saw it at the 2014 St. Petersburg Grand Prix Gala.
There was only one car next to the Ferrari, a Maserati Ghibli, so from some angles I had a clean shot at the car, although I chose to make a tight composition for the above shot and fill the frame edge to edge with the supercar.
The profile view was the cleanest angle I had to photograph the Ferrari 458 Spider. A downtown skyscraper provides the background.
