Good Evening,

My brother is driving, I am sitting at the back and have my tripod held tight with my hands and legs, start on 30" shutter speed. the hardest thing I have done in my life, no breath no slight movement at all in 30".
However, now I appreciate this creative tool.

So, what are you waiting for, take your tripod and let someone drive, if they say that it cannot be done, tell them that Chinese say:
"The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it."

Hope you have enjoyed your weekend so far and preparing for another "manic Monday".

All the best
Astyag

Hi Astyag.
Pretty cool shot mate.
To hold still for 30 seconds in a moving car is quiet an achievement in itself! and the result was good! Lots of nice colours, looks like the view from the cockpit of a science fiction film, flying at warp speed!
Great stuff mate.
Thanks for your nice comments on my latest hdr efforts, i have not had time to try your advice yet, mainly because i have a repetitive strain in my right arm due to over use of the mouse! i use one nearly all day at work and then come home and spend several hours most evenings on my pc! (very painful)
My doctor says i should use my left arm instead.....do you know how hard that is to do!
Take care mate.
Ricky.

Move over 'Mad Max'!! Astyag, you did so well to the 8.58 on the clock so clear whilst moving. You have put a lot of effort and creation into this shot and it has paid off. A wonderful image. Very well done indeed 10/10 ++++ Smile

It's incredible,Astyag.It sounds crazy, "tripod+driving",but the vision is fantastic,the colour is superb.It's like seeing a film,you brought the moving picture into a photo.Can I say that? You know what I mean.Very creative.
I wanted to have a tripod like that once,easy to carry,good idea.
I learned some Chinese from you today,Wink Thank you,my friend.
Thank you for your commments on the bridge.
