Not an original photo I know but it was something I wanted to try and it was a lot of fun!
I set up the camera on a tripod in the middle of the Champs Elysees as I wanted to try and get some trails from the car lights passing through the image but this was very early in the morning and for once there wasn't a lot of traffic.
To get enough car light trails I had to set the f stop up at f22 to get a long enough exposure...as a result I don't think this image is as sharp as it might be due to diffraction. If I'd used an f stop more in the f5.6 - f8 range it would have been sharper. One to remember the next time I try this!
