    Again fire away :) first selective colouring attempt - thought it worked here as the carpark colours are quite subtle anyway...

    The stars or the glare off the lights need to reduce it or set a higher f.stop and go longer shutter or just switch the lights off. other than that looks good to me :)

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I think i was on f22 :O but I may have some at a higher shutter speed which may make the flares less dazzling.

    Nice pic, but I don't think you need to shoot at f/22.

    Thanks Cyrus, Is there a downside to shooting at such a low aperture? I was on a tripod and it allowed me to get those starburst on the lights, or would I have a gotten the same sorta results at a lower f stop?

    I read this tidbit on luminous-landscape.com

    Despite that, I really like the pic, the stary-flare thing really works, as does the B&W background.

    I like the shot, like the glare from the headlights, it works. The only thing I could add is take out the light at the back of the car and the reflections under the mirror, they are somewhat distracting. Good job.

    Thanks for all the comments guys lots of cool stuff to keep in mind next time I attempt something like this!

    If I have time I'll maybe 'shop out some of the distracting reflections.
