Messing Around with Night Time Light

Nice! Did you use a filter to get that effect on the street lights?

no! actually I didn't really know what I did. It was the first shot out of the camera and I still had all my daytime settings on it (apart from the shutter speed)

Stunning coours and a dramatic sense of light on the move!

You (or the camera) slowed the shutter speed to get the light trails and the starburst effect on the light.

I just had a little look on the internet and found this snippet incase you want to try some starbursts:

"What conditions are necessary for starbursts?
* Small aperture (high f-stop) – small aperture holes are harder to form into perfect circles with aperture blades. Circular apertures begin to take more polygonal shapes at f/8 and higher. Also, diffraction is accentuated by small aperture holes since a greater percentage of the passing light is affected by the diffraction edges.
* An intensely bright and stationary light in the field of view – the setting Sun, a Christmas tree light or a lamp post will do nicely. A flickering candle, however, will not produce a starburst since the movement of the flame will result in a blur."
