    i know i know the old rule "dont shoot out a car window"
    but, what if you slow the shutter under a second.
    shoot with a nikon 70-300 f4-5.6.
    at night?

    well this is what i got:

    Haha--I'm glad I checked the forum this thread was in--title could mean a whole different thing somewhere else. ;)

    Cool shot BTW.

    That's nuts. I love it. You could do a whole series based on that.

    It is, in an odd sort of way, very intriguing. Nice creativity!

    I have no problems shooting out of a car window. I usually use the 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII. Set VR to active, use S mode and set it to about 400 at least.

    By the way, what is that? It looks to be heavily cropped.

    thats the headlights of a car on the opposit side of a highway.
    no cropping (and really no post) was used; just look point shoot.
    1.6 sec at f16 iso1600; nikon d100; 70-300 at 300mm.

    haha i just noticed that :eek:

    thanks!
