    I did a search for car long exposures and of course everything that I could find is a night photo.

    Then I got to thinking, what if I could shoot a daylight car long exposure photo?

    Of course the reason being if you shoot a daylight long exposure, you will only have a short period of time before the photo will be blown out.

    Bring in a ND filter and you have a starting point. However when I tried to shoot this is bright daylight, everything was still getting blown out, even with the filter. This is a ND8 filter. However I will be getting a ND10 filter, to give me a better chance of getting a little longer exposure.

    I wanted to test my idea and hone in my settings, because my goal is to get this photo on an empty road with autumn leaves on the ground.

    I am posting this so I can see if this idea seems interesting to anyone else, also to see what you think would make the photo interesting, and to get any general feedback or tips on how to do this.

    So do you think there is a cool photo somewhere within this idea?

    Shot with the D5300 and sigma 18-35 1.8 A lens.

    Sounds cool to me. Maybe stack a couple filters to lengthen exp time??

    Do you like photo 1 better since you can see the car or photo 2 better?

    I think it's a neat idea!

    I'm not really liking #2. I see the car going in reverse in that shot... I'd rather see the car.

    I like seeing the car in the shot...agreed it looks like it's going in reverse. Maybe try the same shot with the car actually going in reverse....to give the illusion that it's going forward? I suppose the reverse lights may mess that up though. I like the concept though....it's a cool shot.

    when i look at #1, I see a stationary car sitting on the side of the road and another that's been PSed in and warp speed trails applied to it.

    If Braineack is right then in describing the method than the uniqueness is gone. But I would say the first one is better I would incorporate the 2 cars.
