    Cool shot! LOL, the dirty windshield is a little distracting.

    What was your setup? Tripod and remote? Did you use bulb and guess, or were you in an auto mode and let the camera choose? I tried this once, but didn't like the results. (I was also not in a tunnel or anything intersting).

    Thanks. I was using shutter priority and stretching it out as long as I could while keeping it still. I had a tripod wedged between the front console and back seats and I rode with it to make adjustments on the fly. My girlfriend was driving. Sometime soon I plan on strapping the tripod down in the back to the cargo hooks and using a remote in some more interesting areas (neon lights, foggy weather,rain, etc). It should be very doable since it's a wagon (Dodge Magnum).

    How long was the shutter open on this shot? Looks good other than the dirty glass ;)

    Ludicrous speed.

    Nice shot.. clean the windshield, remove that thing hanging from the rear view, re-shoot. Tell the driver to keep the steering wheel as still as possible (be safe of course)

    I was just thinking that I need to get the crap off of the mirror:).

    However, I want as much movement as possible while keeping a static dash.
