decorating my favourite car for Xmas :)

23rd place
All that was needed for this shot was a tripod, manual focus, timer release, long exposure, and then just trial and error with the exposure time. The fire trail is from one of those handheld fire sparklers sold around Xmas and New Year. The reflective surface is my favourite car ;) Similar shots can be taken with most point and shoot cameras i guess :) If you decide to try it, pay better attention than I did to what is in the background (those lamps don't really help)
