    Yeah, the RX-8's gone. Too damn expensive to maintain- 16.5 mpg with rising fuel costs does not rock. Anyway, here's the the new ride. . .

    The last two were shot using a 15 second exposure and lightpainting.

    long exposure + flashlight = light paint

    Fix the white balance next time around so your car doesn't look so amber.

    1. Camera set on long exposure (I used anywhere from 10-15 seconds on mine)
    2. Darken room
    3. Use a flashlight and "paint" the areas you want to illuminate (experiment with colored LED's and such too )
    4. ????
    5. Profit.

    It actually does look that way in low light. I'm not a huge fan of the first one because it makes the color look cold. The other two have a warmer feel to them.

    sucks that the car wasn't as good as you hoped, I always liked it..but you still have a very nice machine on you.
