Tonight, another blinding LED taillight on the car ahead, as we drove home in the fog.

But I'm learning. Used Carsten's minus-ten-million-EV trick on a Porsche, and -- just as I was about to give up hope, that last stop down brought the indivdual LEDs into being. Next time will brace the camera on something, or use a tripod... I was down about five or six stops and getting into 'don't handhold' territory real fast.

These LED lights are so bright -- I think, for my monochrome pictures, I'll buy some cheap LED flashlights at the hardware store... the batteries last forever... and try them for spot lighting. Might be better and definitely easier than flash fill.
