When I first got my dx6490, I tried every concievable shot. This is an odd experiment. I was thinking of David Lynch's film Lost Highway. I'd like to know what you think.

I feel like it's Saturday night and I really shouldn't be the one driving home:shock:. Cool shot!

Intersting experiment, Tom Overton.

This shottells of:

dangerously ( as of the slanted horizon )

fast driving ( as of the blurred lines )

into the night ( as of the big amount of black this shot is made of )

I think that the catalyzer for this shot is the tilted horizon : Just correct it and you will end up with an almost unintersting "normal" blurred shot taken from a car !

Thanks for the comments. I agree, the slanted perspective gives this shot its emphasis.

I kind of enjoyed the irresponsibe thrill of driving down a dark road with a camera on top of my steering wheel. I shouldn't be bragging; it is rather dangerous.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

I know what you mean Tom, I have a picture of my odometer in my Jeep when it rolled 100000 miles. When I showed it to my wife and she noticed it also read 55 mph she just :roll:.
