Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream  Night-time view of a restored customised VW Kombi (Combi) that is local to Eastbourne. It can be tricky shooting cars at night, especially when the best angle is on the other-side of a busy rat run cut through, and you have to allow for 30 odd second exposures,  and often have the risk of a light trail running through the shot.  On this occasion the combination of low angle for the composition and the happy occurrence of a passing car across the shot led to this pleasing combination of effect, composition and subject matter.

Night Train

Latest photography posted on my Ipernity Photo Stream

Night shot with light trails from a passing Southern Rail train taken down at St Leonard's at the end of last year. For me the main draw is the urban industrial nature of the building on the left, with the street lamps running up the center of the shot, of course the timing of the light trail created by the passing train is a major positive for me creating some additional atmosphere and the all important sense of dynamic movement , the coastal aspect of the sea to the right and the rising moon in a cloudy sky - finishing touches.  As you may realize I am reasonably pleased with this photo. There is one element that annoys me, but I wont share just yet what this is. As always there is something that says to me "must try harder", and just not quite the perfect composition it could be in my eyes.
