Hi all,
Did some more of my long exposure shots out of a car window (as a passenger of course ;p) tonight. This one was exactly 6 minutes long. Shot at a low colour temperature (2800K).

PP- A slight rotation anti-clockwise, levels, USM, frame. I couldn't believe that this shot was nearly 600kb when I resized it. I chose to compress it more rather than make it smaller... Not sure if that was a wise choice.

Anyways hope you like it,

Hey Jacko, I've just been reading about this type of shot - put the book down and logged on to find this. Great shot.

Very interesting. I love the yellow lines that the strret lights have created!

Crazy, electronic feeling! Good experimental shot.

Wonderful addition to your series, Jako. I really like this one and the yellow lines are just great creating a very intense atmosphere. Excellent!

i like it.. and congrats for the 30D, when did you get it? i like the body :) better than the 350d..

you've got a good lens..

i like this photo, but i like the title more.. suits perfectly and complements the crazy frantic lines...

Looks like something from a Science show. Cool shot. Well done on the long exposure to achieve this effect.
