    ok, they're taken with different cameras and i'm still not 100% used to my dad's digital yet so still not exactly the result i want.. but i'll keep trying... :D

    wow what a dramatic difference! I love the contradictory slow sign versus the speed of the light.......very well done!

    I liked the 2nd photo more. As photo gal said, Slow with speeding light adds great effect

    My thought's exactly. A very nice demonstration of how far you've come. :)

    the first one - handheld, my old digital cr@ppy camera on a 'long exposure' setting (probably about a second)
    the second one - on a tripod, my dad's digital eos on a 25 second exposure (can't remember the ap.) - the tripod wasn't 100% stable though, you can see the wobble it made when i took my finger off the button if you look at the left side of the light-up beacon thing...

    Thanks for the comments! :D
    Maybe you all could have a look yourself and post up and example of your progress and when we get a few, we could shift this thread over into the 'Themes' section or something? :)

    25 seconds? Wow, I thought it was about 5 max. Shows how much I know! Where in Yorkshire are you from?
