    Your site and pictures look great. If I may, I have two suggestions:

    The text on the main page is a little too grey makes it a little hard to read, at least make your contact info stick out.

    What's your full name? You should put that there, especially in the title bar. It'll come in handy down the road in case someone see's one of your photos in the wild and googles the name attached to it.

    Otherwise awesome photos, it's in my morning coffee bookmark list.:thumbup:

    I used jalbum to create the site, you can play around with the templates in HTML and the relevant .CSS so that any customisations (sp) become a permenant change. it's a bit of a pain when it comes to uploading new content but not so much hassle that I'd resort to coppermine or anything!

    may i know if setting the camera to "Fireworks" photo mode will it capture the night flyover picture in ur webbie?
    It show 2.3" or 4.0" when i do so...dunno what it means...
    Slowest shutter speed i can achieve by using other mode "Flowing Water" and "Night Scene" is 1/8 and 1/6

    does 2.3" and 4.0" means 2 and 4 second?

    if I remember rightly there was quite a bit of light around for that shot, by memory the settings were:

    ISO: 200
    f11
    Shutter: 5 or 8 seconds

    This was after I'd started off with a much wider apeture and longer exposure, When I got a few overexposed shots I just lowered the settings until I got a picture I was happy with.

    try to take as many shots as you can, I took dozens before I got 1 I was vaguely happy with!! If you're at the level of the cars then a lorry will usually look good as it gives another level to the traffic lines. I think that's about all the advice I have to give as I'm pretty new to the night photography thing myself.

    That would all depend on the traffic speed and length of road you're shooting I suppose. So long as you're getting anough light onto the sensor, which 4 seconds should do, then you will be ok, you still won't see the cars even if they're still in frame when the shutter closes (well I didn't anyway!). If you have a tripod then take it with you, I ended up wandering around resting my camera on bridges etc which limited me a lot until I got the tripod but now I haven't had the chance to use it yet...
