Max has been very busy, He sent me these after my last bit of feed back.
I really liked the first one and so did Max, however, I thought the second one portrait motion and a fuzzy looking guy which I thought would suit the article better. I suggested adding a background colour and moving forward with this second one.
Max added this texture to the background which I thought looked great. We were nearly there at this stage I had one more change which was to chang the colour of the blue speed lines coming out the back of the car, I thought they blended in with the background and didn't stand out enough.
So The final editorial ended up looking like this, very happy with Max's work!
Here is a quick mock up.
