    Trail Lights

    This is my 3rd time trying at trail lights. I thought I would try a few different things with different angles, also using my car bonnet (hood) and roof for some reflection.

    # 5 seems best to me, you seem to have exposure ok but think that you need height to add interest to the images, they all seem a little flat.

    I like 5 but love 1, very graphic and strong.
    Kind of reminds me of posters from the 80's (yes I remember them all too well, and a couple of decades before that).

    Re: Trail Lights

    I don't disagree with other's comments.

    I might add that some, say #3, might be better if the bonnet were sharper.

    I cannot see what aperture was used, but if it is possible to try to get more foreground sharp by either a narrower aperture and/or use of hyperfocal distance focusing, that might be of benefit. Although I appreciate that won't be easy at night.

    Cheers,

    Aperture was 3.5 to 5.6.
    Thanks for the link Dave. I think I may have to read that one a few times before I understand it
