Hi Richard.
I really like the first shot, just a tiny bit of movement giving it a sort of surreal or spooky feeling, but keeping enough detail to see what it was.
I'm afraid that the second and third have my marmite vote. I do not like them at all, they are too busy(?) but then that is only my opinion and we all know what they say about opinions.
Perhaps I'm just not able to see the artistic intention. :)

Cheers, Graham.

I would love critique - I know they are marmite - but feedback would be great! Let's see some more...

Hi hgraf.
Interesting look, I'm curious as to how long your drive home was, there doesn't seem to be as much blown out as I would expect, or was a lot of your journey away from lighting? Also I'm wondering what caused the blue lines?

Cheers, Graham.

Both camera and subjects moved during this shot of me driving home from work one day (left the shutter open during the whole drive)

Graham - I knew they would be marmite, so I am pleased you like one of them (which happens to be my favourite to - but it is a composite as well...) There is a fine balance between not having enough and having too much movement. Printed big they are pretty darn impressive on the wall - IMO!!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment!

Hmm, "marmite," learned a new word today.

I don't dislike any of them, but really like the first the best. I've never tried this kind of photography; most of mine are UCM! Thanks for sharing.

Marmite: a yeast spread that people put on bread or toast and you either love it or hate it!!!

Thanks Jon for looking and commenting!

Hi Jon.
Marmite, highly concentrated dregs from brewing beer, (akaleft over brewers yeast) tastes very salty.
I you want more Wikipedia can serve up more information about it than you ever wanted to know.

Cheers, Graham.

we (Chinese) have something of equivalent disgusting, a fermented bean paste. Some like it, I don't.

Here's an intentional camera movement with a tripod, loose ball head and a 1/2 second exposure to create an abstract effect:


Here's a zoom burst effect using a similar technique:


This image is a camera rotation and zoom burst during a long exposure:
