Yes, but I was being lazy by using a quick shot taken with my pocket Pana fx150 and couldn't be arsed to edit it (apart from my plate)..... :(

Now if I was to spend a few hours on Photoshop................ :|

Mind you, some people are just so damn good at taking photo's. :lol:

I take it as a compliment then :) :)

Because, all this photo had done to it was a tiny bit of a crop and white balance adjustment in Lightroom, that's all.

Otherwise it's a result of hard work from Rob (Red5) driving my car in circles around his car, and me standing there with a tripod and a cable release attached to the camera. In an empty Halfords car park at 21.30 on an October night. :lol:

Nice looking picture Rusty... I see those late night trips out were worth while.

Now need to get one of my 1M...

For those summer and dry weekends... Alpine white 1M coupe
And for the dogs a B8 Audi RS4

Cheers dude :beerchug:

Happy to pop along if you need any moral support....or a blast through the lanes late at night! You've got a few weeks to plan your shot anyway.

Your RS4 went down a treat at Castle Combe didn't it!

(PS thanks to IMAX for letting me use his 1M for the winning photo last month in the shot with my m135)

Well, I had been waiting for another trip to North Wales before I was going to try this shot, but when I seen this theme I decided to do it a little more local!

A spot of light painting under the Milky Way...

Bugger. I saw this and my first words were 'oh ya b**tard...'

Great work mate. Where are you based? I'd love a night photography lesson one day to make those sort of shots.

Competition closed. Winner is Ryan.
