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.

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.

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.

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.

I think these photo's are great. Been a quite a few and everyone has looked brilliant.

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!??

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.

Great photo. Ive done one of when an emergency vehicle passed by and it only added to the effect.
