The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…

Ok, so I promised a streaky shot, but to be perfectly honest I’m not at all happy with this one, and seriously intend to re-do it and make a far better job of it next time around, but as I’m not sure when I’ll get round to it this will have to suffice for now… I did say there might be a streaky shot (or two)…

  1. I think it turned out GREAT!
    It’s very odd to see the steering wheel on the “wrong” side, though ;-)

    • Haha.. Thanks Michaela.. but I think you’ll find it’s on the “right” side still.. ;)

    Oh, *this* kind of ‘streaky’! I thought you were talking about PS trickery – that kind of ‘swiped-go-faster’ background that infers movement. Now I get it! I love this effect – it’s what led me to your site in the first place. This looks like a fun, fairground ride! Love it! :)

    • Haha… Yeah the other kind of streaky is in planning… At least it’s not the other other kind of streaky… ;)

  5. You are too hard on yourself, Brian, as this is fantastic! Like you’ve just entered ‘warp speed’!

    • Thanks Tracy… You’re probably right… Sometimes I guess I may be…

    Well I LOVE it!! You know I loved the first one, like waaay back when, but this one is awesome too (although I rather liked that more of you was included in the last one ;) ) It’s so neat to see the streaks in the side view mirrors as well. Btw, it’s still not right driving on the wrong side of the road like

    • Thanks so much MrsA.. Yeah the other one was possibly a more interesting angle… Did try to repeat it the other day, but couldn’t quite get it set right… I’ll try again though, as I’m not 100% with this one… ;)

  7. I was thinking a *different* kind of streaky! Was almost afraid to look! LOL

    This is a very cool shot. :)
    I agree…right side steering wheel is throwing me off!

    • Haha… Believe it or not I once posted the “other” kind of streaky, although it’s not quite as bad as it sounds… lol…

  12. I miss my sportswagon! What’s your Mazda like on fuel? I like the picture. How did you do it?

    • Thanks Keith… Well the shot was a 30 second exposure set up as solidly as possible on a tripod… Unfortunately though it wasn’t quite as stable as I’d have liked… As for the car, yeah it’s still pretty cool, but not particularly economical in todays standards… Its petrol, and I’m getting roughly 34mpg with normal driving… It’ll do me though… ;)

  13. You got smooth roads for a 30 second exposure. I could barely get a stable look with only 3 second exposures around my town. Roads are just too bumpy in the States. BTW, I got the reverse driver side shot this week. :)
