    As promised, I donned my high-viz vest, risked life and limb, and returned to North Park after sundown to get me some zooming light trails :)

    Now that was worth it. And the light balances quite well without the ND. I really like the colour balance here Chris (but then I do like CP images). The way 86 seems to float in front of the tail light trails is really interesting - like a time stamp! :)

    Powerful image Chris big feel about it in every sense. Fantastic camera I must say.

    Same shot - but taken with Fuji Provia 400 ASA film

    Very different feel to the final image just by changing the film.

    Bring them on Chris , enjoying seeing these images a lot. Like the subtle tones of the Provia shot. is that the nature of this film or any processing youve done? I think I may prefer it.

    It's all in the film Julian - far more 'normal' look to the image - I think I like it better as well on this scene

    i wonder how often that sign gets struck. i like the saturated look of the velvia for this shot, esp with the sky, but i think the provia might look better in most situations. both are great images though.

    Thanks you both - we have one more vote for the Provia, and one for the Velvia! :)

    Nice shot prefer the velvia, but I'm a sucker for punchy contrasty colour.

    I prefer the first also. It gives it a more other-worldly look.

    Oh man...I'm lovin' that first one. Killer colors.

    Thanks everyone - I might try some 100 ASA Velvia to get a little better low light performance but keeping the rich colors

    Glad you came back in one piece. Great photo, it would make a nice promo photo for North Park, I'd say.

    Beth - hit and run last night, right where I had been standing to take the shot - motorcyclist killed - makes you think :(

    it happens. glad it didn't happen while you were there. unfortunately crash statistics go through the roof when motorcycles are out. sucks that it was a h&r, hope they catch the jerk.

    Thanks Ralph - I might just hit them up and see if they're interested

    The second is more natural the first more striking. Great work, risking life and equipment, well worth it.
