    I really like this, especially the extra levels of lights from larger vehicles

    I've tried a few long exposures on water but they never come out, how did you do this?

    I have always liked these type of shots, I like the difent heights of llight from the different vehicles. I do find the roundabout and parked cars a little distracting though. But still a nice shot. :)

    I really like the parked cars and roundabout, I'd really like a larger copy if you would be willing :)

    well i used a shutter speed of 30second, a aperture of f18 and manual focus.. also, i forgot one of my screws for my tripod which stoped the camera from moving left to right. which, has added a blur to it, but ive almost fixed this by sharpening with photoshop., im very new to all this long exposer things and i quite like taking pictures like this, im hoping to capture some more shots like thiis in different locations later on in the week

    Looks good to me, especially since this was your first try. Nice shot.
