I really like this type of photo. Gives a sense of speed as well as being very artistic. Thanks Michael

I like them too Helen. My son and I have tried to do photos like that and sometimes they're really quite impressive, like Michael's shot above. Well done.


Comment by Ron D on 30th June 2013 at 16:05
I think these are a bit gimmicky, having said that, it is one of the better ones .
Enough exposure to lighten the sky .
Composition is quite good to .
Rely nowt wrong with it.
Like it.

I like light trails and this shows the technique to good effect, not something that could really be done handheld!!
A very nice example here well done Michael.


Comment by Garry on 30th June 2013 at 18:46
One of the cars/vans has run off the road to the left, next to the A49 sign and smashed through the barrier??? I think the photos a con.
Superimposed thats the word.


Comment by Harry C. on 30th June 2013 at 20:09
Ron said it all, and I like it.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 30th June 2013 at 22:04

Comment by JM_Wigan on 30th June 2013 at 22:24
I think these photo's are great. Been a quite a few and everyone has looked brilliant.


Comment by Ellen on 30th June 2013 at 23:09
Garry, I think that the 'off the road' vehicle simply realized that he didn't want to take the turn onto the A49, and drove back into his lane gradually!??


Comment by Ellen on 30th June 2013 at 23:11
I love this shot,by the way! Thanks, Michael.

Regarding the comments on the lights of the vehicle leaving the the main carriageway, compared to the other lights I think the lights are the roof lights on a high sided lorry.


Comment by Jon on 18th July 2013 at 18:01
Great photo. Ive done one of when an emergency vehicle passed by and it only added to the effect.


Comment by Michael Collier on 24th July 2013 at 18:50
Thanks for all your comments this picture was just held tightly on the motorway bridge no tripod used the lights leaving the motorway was a hgv. And the picture has not been enhanced it came straight out of the camera and emailed.
