    Default Taken at a party...

    ....With some friends. I took it with a compact, so it is pretty bad quality, I couldn't choose the shutte speed so I had to "cheat" to have these light trails. What do you think of it ?

    Thanks, the colors are not that natural though. Photoshop...
    Actually, I hit the button in front of a black background (the big tree on the right) in order to have the longest shutter speed the camera could offer. Then I moved toward the road and finished the shot. I wanted to have the trails.

    Creative way to accomplish a long exposure where you don't have the option to do that on your camera

    Krimo, you did the right thing to get the slow shutter speed, remember its the photographer, not the camera that makes a good picture!

    No comment for this picture,
    keep experimenting and happy shooting!

    good try at this!
    i would use a tripod or somthing to keep the camera still so the objects that are supose to be still (the tree, street,etc) are still in the frame, and only the cars and such are showing movment. try the same technique, but with a tripod

    happy shooting
