A wonderful idea and fantastically executed. Have you used any slow sync flash here? The shadow would tend to indicate not, but just curious!

Hi Diana, settings were 5 secs @ F11, iso 100, 10-20mm lens @10mm.
I thought about cloning out the flare but decided to leave it in the end. Whats bleached light?

Well for one there is a lot of light anyway for a long expo, so personally I would have found a less lit place, but hey, you chose to do it here and so lets work with that....

So.. I would have used maybe f22 for this place, exposed for longer too this would have reduced the ‘bleached’ light of the lamp to the right, the one that looks kind of starry but would have been much more starry with a smaller aperture and reduced the bleachiness/brightness in the car trails, then I would have used a flash to pop the model to get him sharper..no flare..you dont need P/shop if you get it right in cam ..and you can Smile

Hi Diana, thats excellent feedback and I appreciate it. We had planned a different spot with less light but when we got there there was a load of road works so we had to look for a different spot. Dont go into town much but when I get another chance I'll certainly take your advice.
