    3 would be neat if there wasnt a thermonuclear bomb going off in the frame. The rest are just meh to me.

    It was intentional, I wanted to capture the light source in the picture.

    I'm not really crazy about any of them either but I figured I'd see what you guys think :rofl:

    I'm impressed, mainly because I have no idea to make my camera do that, minus #4. I can never get my colors to look that smooth with long exposures.

    It would be fine to me if the light was there...its just the fact that its like a small SUN bothers me.

    I like them, but then again I'm a sucker for night long exposure shots. Especially 1 and 3. Not real sure what the others are.

    I can see what you were going for with number 3 but the light just becomes a distraction. I try to look at the tree but the light keeps pulling me away. How'd you do that one anyway, is it just selective color/sat settings?

    for that shot, you could have still got the light, but controlled it a little better with you're f/stop. I'm going to assume by looking at the lighting that you shot this @ a very low f/stop (somewhere between f/2.8- f/4) if you would have shot this around f/11-f/16 your light source would have appeared less "blob" like.

    I'd like #1 if the crop was longer and half the tree wasnt cut off. Can't decide if the bright light or the tree is the subject. Same with #3.

    I've been trying to google IR pics.

    I like #3, minus the blown out part.

    not a fan of the light trails. They seems like you just used long exposure and had a seizure. 1 and 3 are cool, definitely different from anything Ive done.

    I tried cropping #3. I'm going to try some new stuff after this though. The fog and lack of worthwhile subjects kinda sucks.

    3 is nice...2 and 4 look like throw aways from a point and shoot when your in a car at night and dont hold the camera still and the auto gives you like a 1 second exposure.

    3 is cool but would be better without that blown spot.
