Wow..this is nice. Is there something on fire on the road? It looks as if something burst into flames. Good work! #330070

Thanks for your comments and having a look on my gallery! you are welcome.

It was taken mid night, due to heavy traffic,the moving vehicles stopped (traffic jam) at the place,within my camera's 30 sec exposure. Therefore it recorded like a "Flame burst" lighting effect.

This is my First Night Shot, I tried with my SLR camera. I am waiting for my next night photography on coming "Diwali" hindu festival, next month, to record firewords from that same height.

Let me see my luck!

Again, thanks for your look on my works.

Hi Siddhun - I love night time photography! That burst of light through the trees is stunning. Great work. If it's any help, I find that the slower the film the better a night time photograph is. I go for shutter speeds of up to a minute and if I stop the lens down as far as possible (e.g. f22) the lights tend to turn into beautiful stars. I'd love to see that tree burst of yours with f22 on say 100ASA film, or slower if you can get it. #2381750
