in suburbia

Its the street outside our house, the neighbourhood where we live yet it looks so different like this - I loved the way the streetlamps shone outside so did some time exposures and got this interesting image of suburbia.


Im not 100% happy with this yet, a bit over exposed, but I think that works for some reason. More playing to come.


Thoughts, suggestions, criticism welcome.

    Nice pic mate.. i'd have gone a little closer to the road and shot down it, that young tree in the foreground kind of detracts from the rest of the image. You know me though, I love any night scene :) Try a couple from 1ft off the rd too, for something diff?

    Thanks mate, I wasnt happy with composition as such, I think it needs to move and I am going to play with it to get more of the roundabout in and cut out the tree in the foreground next time I do this. The nice thing is its outside the front door so easy to play, but I do wonder what the neighbours think....

    Normally theres a lot of cars here and i was aiming for some nice light trails - I got some last week but the best turned out a little fuzzy - still getting used to manual focusing in low light again (ahh the things you forget - think i need a viewfinder hood) - wouldnt you know it but last night was quiet for once so not as many cars :(

    Nice photo. Looks like you have a UFO visiting at the centre!

    Great shot. I would have moved toward the street a bit. I feel that the foreground plant breaks up the continuity of the car driving by. You did a great job pulling off the night exposure. Its a hard thing to get right.
