    I love that shot!

    It looks like you are racing toward the future or something, i dig pics that you can intrepret alot different ways.

    I also like the fact the horizon is just slight off balance in this shot, it really adds to the movement.

    The interior of the car looks relatively still, while the outside lights are all jagged. I would think that they would be straight streaks like the painted lines on the road. How did this happen? - very cool!

    Please explain if you can!

    Thanks for the link, great photos on the site. Thats been added to my Photgraphy favs.


    I stuck the camera on a tripod, stuck both the back seat belts round it to stop to much movment. Set the camera to a 20sec exp & put the timer on so I had time to get the car moving & drove off.
    Not as good as I wanted but its a start.

    Great start! Except that the steering wheel is on the wrong side! (joking of course). What about getting more of the driver and dashboard lights?

    Suggestion:

    Use an open or close curtain flash sync, possibly even with a softbox. Doing this will capture all the lights from the traffic through the windows, but the image of inside the car will be frozen by the strobe.
