Motion, impact, sharp contrast: great stuff, Sam!
Samarth: many thanks dave...
Wow. Thats incredible. Does it look better in colour?
Samarth: i usually have to work very hard in photoshop to make shots taken at night look good in colour so i chicken out and go with b/w... for some reason the light balance never seems right to me and the sky is always a little puke-coloured...

Awesome!...Love the title too!


(How are all the lamp's lens flare things six-pointed?...)
Samarth: thanks vidur... as farhan said, the aperture is hexagonal...
Don't know anything about photography but it looks awesome.

Vyder: I think it's because the shutter thing in the camera used had a hexagonal aperture (?)
Samarth: thanks farhan... you're right about the hexagonal aperture...
breathless! stunning capture!
Samarth: thank you olivier!
Samarth: grazie

Very cool Sam. I love the intensity of this scene. Really excellent.

As always the drama has been PERFECTLY captured and sold.

Merry Christmas Young Jedi smile
Samarth: thanks guys... merry christmas and a happy new year to you too..
cant say owt bad about this Sam, stunning shot fellasmile me likey a lot.
Samarth: thank you tim...
The idea is great. I think there is just a bit too much bright white in the centre which pulls the eye away from seeing the rest of the picture. This is worth trying again because there is a great picture in the making.
Samarth: thanks bill...

Nice time lapse image. I like the way the lines of light disappear in the explosion of light from the vehicle headlights.
Samarth: thank you!
Pretty impressive. I agree with the comment of Bill Phillips. Anyway, very worthwhile to post it, it is inspiring.
Samarth: thanks paul...
It works Sam, that beautiful sweep of light to the left - it works very well.
