I know, I know, that light ball bothered me from the "get go". unfortunately, this was the best pic of the evening, and being 20 degrees and windy, I wasn't about to try any retakes. I'm happy with the outcome though. thanks for the comments

I like this but pity about the lightball behind the car...very distracting.

well done. I would have suggested moving the motionless car to the far left to open up the shot a little. This would also have enabled you to let the wheels play a bigger role in the composition.

The hot spot is very distracting.

That light spot hurts is distracting!!!!! Otherwise - nice picture....

Interesting...but the brightness of the light behind the car is a bit distracting.

Very interesting photo as we can see the lights from the other car moving by and the other has no driver in it. It is also interesting to note that there is not license plate on the car as well. Odd but interesting.

Composition (well, size and location of car compared to surroundings) is cracking. I like the rushing lights, and the trees look pretty cool - it's a good location you chose. The picture itself isn't that "wheely" to me - the car is a bit too head on... Are those the standard golf headlights? And why'd you take off the number plate? Doesn't matter, really. It's a good one, this one. erm. 7.

interesting idea
nice use of the exposure time...
somehow the composition is not that successful
but .. it's a nice try

I really think you should have skipped the stopped car I think it ruins alot in the picture I like the sky and the trees and thelight trail, Did you take a picture without the car? Would like too see if you did, good luck :-)

Good placement and use of long exposure.
04/07/2004 01:20:38 PM
really well done!

The balance between the lighting of the parked car works well with the delayed exposure lighting of the moving car. The only exception is the headlights visible to the right. They are just too bright and take the attention away from the rest of the focus. Without that, it would have really strengthened the photo. As far as meeting the challenge, well, there are wheels visible but the photo doesn't really say "wheels". They are basically incidental to the photo, not the theme. No deduction, just an observation.
