    hi,
    i was at a very well lit parking lot in the mall, about 9:30pm or so, so its dark out.
    i was waiting for all the cars to be passing by and getting different light streaks as they passed by, had the camera on the tripod and even set it to 2 second timer to definitely not have any shakes. zoomed in 10x (optical) and shot away., it was definitely good times trying to time all those cars passing by.
    this is what i came up with. took me almost an hour or so, then the few select pictures were merged in to have a nice flow of colors in the background.
    let me know what you think...

    I like the concept and execution but the slight tilt of the cars going by I can't get over, and the frame is way too much.

    Like everyone else has said, get rid of the frame.

    It's nice shot given that you couldn't move the car around, the trees really ruined the composition.

    I like the shot also, the frame could lose just the white fade part of it. nice job

    Yeah nice shot mate, loving the light trails. Saw another shot like this once, just after it had rained, there was a puddle below the car, which with the reflection added an awesome twist to the photo, watch out for that.
    Wouldnt be my choice of colour car tho :D. personal opinion :)

    I like the reflection, but i think there is too much light on the front of the car, and not enough on the back. Just my opinion.

    Oh this will make me unpopular :)

    I like the idea with the exception that you have a dark interior and thru the windows and a corner of the roof that blend too much into the dark trees. So you loose the curves of the car.

    that is very true.
    i do have about 20 or so shots like this in different settings on the camera. so i can work something out.
    its just that the light was at the wrong place, thats all i can say lol
