Challenge: Night Shot II (Advanced Editing II)
Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark II
Lens: Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX Aspherical DG for Canon
Location: Powell WY
Date: Oct 15, 2004
Aperture: 8
ISO: 50
Shutter: bulb
Date Uploaded: Oct 17, 2004

Now if you are reading this, I probably know what you are thinking. You did what with your MarkII. But yes I did. I secured a tripod to the vehicle using bungee cords. It was very secure. I had a remote switch that went in through the back window and I was holding it in my right hand while I steered with my left. I just drove around a few small towns for awhile doing different places and angels and different lengths of exposure on the bulb setting. I never exceeded 20 mph. This one was shot at around 15-20 mph. I had no one else with me so I was very paranoid about the camera being out there, but I really have been wanting to try this kind of shot. I know it has been done before but it is a staple in the auto magazine world and I think it looks cool.Hopefully it won't get voted down too much for copying other shots in past challenges. I would just like to say that those weren't the first ones done and I have wanted to try this for years. Just never had the balls. Oh yea, i used the 12-24mm Sigma lens on the 12mm setting.

Not to pick on ya okeefe, but it is a nissan pathfinder. =)

I like the effect of the blurred bright light bordering the Lincoln. You should submit some of your shots to Ford motor Co

You are insane in my opinion. Just plain insane. I could never hang out my baby out on the outside of a car like that, sheesh, what if something happened? I could never forgive myself.

By the way, the shot is also insane, would have given it a 10 if I could have voted and no offense to Amason I think this should have won.

Anyone hanging their hardware outside their car deserves one IMO.
Well Done!

This is a very clever shot! Well done! I'd love to know how you braced the camera on the car!

I rated this very highly for the great concept, sharp image and awesome motion blur.

Congrats and good luck!

dynamic and abstract - love the green and yellow. There is less visual meaning and more emotional - the speed, the lines on a city, the colors and adventure of night. 9

I love this shot, one of my absolute favourites....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2004 01:14:57 AM
This is quite a dynamic photo. I've seen others like it, but it's always neat to see someone take a new path with old material. I love that I can see in the car and the dashboard, and the green tinting to the street-lights is very.. unique. Especially with the blue. Great idea, nice execution.

This looks like it took a brave set-up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2004 02:18:50 AM
Wow!!!! This is fan-frickin-tastic! The car is so sharp but the motion blur is so smooth. Unreal. The first 10 I've given in a long time!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2004 10:26:41 PM
a very crisp and clean example of a classic cliché shot. Very well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2004 06:31:15 AM
Fantastic.
That's about it.
I couldn't possibly give you any advice a i am way under qualified for shots at this level.
Well done. 10 from me.
A ribon winner if i've ever seen one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2004 06:25:52 AM
very very nice. colours, lighting, angle, style - everything on this totally rocks. i love how the road and lights go straight to the vanishing point on the horizon. other little details such as the dash board totally adds depth to the shot. can't comment on this much because it's perfect as it is. 10.

Bumping up to 9, there is nothing that i don't like here, really, with the exception of the left hand on the steering wheel. I think either more of the driver should be in the picture or none at all. Otherwise, an immaculate shot. Very dynamic and well executed.

Welcome to Club de Bleu with this one I think. Flawless, exciting and very dynamic. What a rush.

I'll remove all my clothes and run through London's streets if this doesn't win a ribbon. : )
