Challenge #1 in the The series of Lars series. Hosted by Lars Rehm.
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.

1st place
Taken on Times Square last November during my trip to New York on an exceptionally cold evening. I waited for the sun to go down to get a nice balance between ambient and artificial light.

Focal length: 12 mm
Shutter speed: 1/5 sec
Aperture: F5.6
ISO: 200
Notes: Single exposure, very little PP. I clamped my camera to railings using the surprisingly sturdy Gorillapod SLR-Zoom. I took quite a lot of shots and finally managed to get one with taxis on either side of the frame.
