Challenge: Free Study IX (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Sony DSC-F828
Location: Rhodes Greece
Date: Nov 20, 2005
Aperture: F2.8
ISO: 64
Shutter: 8.0"
Date Uploaded: Nov 29, 2005

This was just something I saw riding my scooter at night(here in europe we ride scooters lol). I did not have a tripod with me, so I just propped the camera on the seat of my bike and waited for another to pass then clicked the shutter.

I set the flash to fire first and then the shutter to remain open for another 8 seconds.

PS: Cloned out some unwanted areas, and dimmed the exposure to create the dark sky

I like how the lighting looks, kind of unusual but cool. Might have been nicer if it was taken with a car in the closest lane rather than the opposite one.

Great to see the other elements well lit up as well as the light trace without a start or end. It looks good.

try crop off a 4/5 from the bottom up to the tree at front so the bright grass in the bottom would be out, then I think you would have a much better photo, it's not bad as it is, it's nice, but it could be better.
