At the Chinese New Year Parade, we were in close quarters. There are some points to keep in mind. Perspective is an issue. But I believe it adds some tension to the image. It emphasizes the grill, which is ok. The camera is not at eye level but more horizontal to the car. Also I tilted the camera slightly to get a more dynamic image. Just enough of the back of the car is showing. The image is in motion even though the car is not. So for cars, get low and go for a low angle distortion. Depending on what you wish, this effect can be exaggerated more.
