Most car wallpapers feature sweeping vistas and wide shots of the cars. You can take in the majesty of the entire vehicle and see the way all the pieces come together. But today, we’re losing the forest for the trees. When you focus on a beautiful detail, you start to appreciate a car’s lines in a new way.

Today’s ridiculously awesome wallpaper comes to you by way of reader Abdul Adardour, who told us:

It’s a 2013 black and red JCW hardtop. The photo was taken in my garage. I used a light painting technique which involved using a small cardboard box, my cell phone’s flash light function. I also kept the shutter on my camera open for a few seconds.
