Thanks, lighthouse illuminated by town and traffic light pollution.
arhmatic: Oh, bubbly cameras... Why everything these days look more and more like a melted bar soap?
By contrast, Fuji, Olympus - well done!
Couldn't agree more. The most critical factor influencing final results in the world of imaging is the aesthetics of the camera and equipment used. Or perhaps an even more important fundamental is how I look while I'm using it. Similarly when I get prints done, I inspect the print shops equipment, if the name of the printer doesn't sound good to my ear, I'll go elsewhere. :P
Thanks Ruth, just in almost the right place at the right time :)
Steve Throndson: I like your photo. It's got so much texture it almost hurts the eyes to look at it. Could have been a set for a Batman movie, or something like that. The motion blur in the shadowy figures is great too. Good work!
carizi: I think the voters confused the "dark" side of the city with the low light side of the city. How's Hosier Lane, Melbourne a "dark" side of the city??
Other than than....I like the capture.....
Yeah, I agree. Disappointed to see some images far more fitting the challenge subject way down in results. I figure most here haven't been to or know where Hosier Lane is, and therefore see the shot as presented, without the real world context that we know.-thanks, and I obviously have processed this very low key for the challenge.
Eddie Perry: Congrats on your win. I love the composition of this image; in particular the curve of the underside of the bridge. How long was your exposure?
Thanks, yes the bridge lends itself perfectly as a frame for the skyline. This is an HDR, shot, which I usually shoot at +1, -1, -3. The longest exposure would've been around 20-30 sec. Unfortunately I'm away and can't access my images for further detail at the moment. Thanks again. :)
Hey there, thanks! Used my 7D with 400mm 2.8 mkII and 1.4x III teleconverter.
Thanks! It is one of the coolest cars I've ever seen. Shortly after I was here an article turned up in the local Street Machine mag, which I had to share. If you want to know about the car, the article is here on my flickr page. http://www.flickr.com/photos/numnuts_photography/sets/72157623943130376/
numnuts: Lucky you! I so wished to be there this year, my last was '08 when Strega took the Gold final. Oh to be so close, yep, I'm green with envy. Nice shot!
So sad to hear of the terrible accident, hope you're alright. I know everyones thoughts are with those that were less fortunate.

Sure. It's right hand drive, in Australia. I'd been out all day taking pics, spent some time at the airport on the way home doing some long exposures and decided to try some on the way home. I spread my tripod wide, two legs in the back seat and one out the front leaning on the bench seat. Set the camera to manual with my 10-22 from memory, did a couple of test exposures to get it right and shot a few on the trip back. No single image had a good amount of streams so I combined the best 2 or 3 to get what is here. I'll have to do some more like this I think......
I live about 20 minutes away from here. Just down those steps I've met a couple of the best surf photographers around. A good spot to practice sports photography on a big day!
