Challenge has finished
We don't care if it is a NYC yellow cab, a London black cab or a Havanna Coco Taxi as long as it's a taxi and there is blur in the image. Use these slow shutter speeds, create some motion blur and make this taxi look really fast.

I purposely shot this image while holding the camera at waist level. I held it as tightly as I could against my body while selecting a shutter speed just slow enough to blur the moving cars. I took about 6 shots before I found this one to be the best of the lot.
