    It seems you have the right general idea, i.e.
    using a tripod (I'm sure you did) and a long
    exposure. The trouble is, I don't know what
    this is in the photo.

    I would guess that if I can't tell what your
    photo is about then other people would have
    the same trouble. Now. if this is just a practise
    shot to see what a long exposure looks like,
    then of course that's fine.

    So, maybe you want to tell us why you took
    the photo, what it means to you, and what
    you were trying to capture. Hope I don't come
    across as being mean, only want to help. Cheers.

    Same here. I took some long exposures when I first got my camera (They're posted around here somewhere, I think) and got a few Metro buses going by as well.

    Doogan, not mean at all! Tbh it was just a practice shot I took last night to see how it worked. I was just wondering whether I'd gotten it right (that's very subjective I know!). I think the exposure length was about right but the photo got a yellow look, I guess from the street lights.
    I had to edit it to try and make it look ok.

    Correct guys - it was a bus going past! Sadly, I got nothing to offer as a prize! Ha ha.
