yet another 'how do I do this' from the monkey boy! At the moment I'm starting work at 6AM which gives me about 30 minutes to lean out the window and take some shots of the ring road near me, with a few cars passing it gives the desired effect although the composition is pretty terrible! What I really want to know is how to get a sharp focus on the background? At the moment I haven't got a tripod (getting one this weekend) so I'm using a pile of books to rest the camera on and there isn't any movement camera-wise. I would have used the self timer to get rid of the button press wobble but by the time I'd knocked off a few shots, put them on the PC and realised the problem it was just too light outside. Othere than the self timer, what do I need to change with these? I'd also like to be able to lessin the washout on the street lights without loosing too much of the blur of cars going by, and ideas anyone? Please bear in mind that I've done no processing on this picture at all as I'm in work and the best editing tool here is paint!
