    Critique and comments of this one please, I happen to like it but would welcome suggestions as to how to improve it. For the technically minded it was shot at f11 1/30 second at 35mm on ISO 200 film, on my Pentax which I have now sold (WHY DID I DO THAT ???)

    I think I would like something in the picture to be in focus and sharp. The way it is currently my eye wanders all over looking for something to focus on, to be the focus of the shot.

    I always thought the car was in focus, as was the pool of light in front of it. It looks OK on the print, maybe the neg scan is a bit 'off'. Thanks for the critique- I maybe need to review how I do these panning shots and get more practice.

    No one who made no mistakes ever achieved anything :D

    It looks like the car's front lights are in focus, at least I cannot detect any motion blur there.

    For one who has only managed to get her first panning shot right in broad daylight, I can only express acknowledgement and awe for one who tries their hand at panning at NIGHT! Way cool.
