I saw this photo a looooong time ago at DPC:

[thumb]435314[/thumb]

and have always wanted to imitate it.

In this shot I was hoping to convey a sense of motion, with the car going around the curve. At first I was going totally abandon this idea because we didn't have a mini-light anywhere. But then my kids found one about 20 minutes before the challenge was to begin (lol) and so this is what you get. I wish I had more time to have worked on this.

i feel the motion and like the crop. but the glare distracts me and pulls me eye to the right away from the subjects. 6

Wonderful nostalgia piece. The light in the background gives a ghostly sense of movement, whereas in the foreground creates a path of the car. All items, the board, the car, the house, are all obviously stationary, but the use of light gives a sense of movement to them all. I even love the house/hotel piece, which looks like a faded memory.
