Would love to have done but 8 seconds is my max I'm afraid. I'll have to get the council to remove the speed camera just down the road so that 8 seconds is long enough!

Cool shot Frenchy. I haven't tried this yet but might have a go. The M4 is just up the road. Where's that tripod . . .

Looks like I've just lied to you - on checking again,the exposure was only 3.2 seconds. Obviously I'm losing the plot. Sorry, don't take offense! I'll head back there and get an 8 second-er in and see how that goes.

I really like it except for one detail. The sign or pole or something that sticks up about 1/3 of the way from the left. If you could clone that out then your light trail would not be interrupted there. Since it's at pretty large and at a strong point in the photo it's much more distracting than the other poles. Besides, those have lights on them, so their contribution to the scene is clear.

And go back out and get a longer exposure.

Oh yeah, maybe try to get a lower angle too, see how that works. I'd like to see more trail and less black if possible (I'm not really asking for too much, am I!!!).

Nice composition that gives perspective.

dale

PS: 8 sec might burn but it can't hurt to try. Bracket everything and you may be able to do a composite for the "Perfect" picture.

Thanks for the comments all. That post was bothering me too but the council wouldn't remove it when I phoned to ask them so I had to take the photo with it in. I've tried cloning it out like Jaki's done but can't seem to get it quite right. There seems to be a 'wobble' that I can't remove.
