    Trying to do something a bit different, and my limited imagination came up with this one. I set this up the other day specifically for this months competition.......

    Not a lot really - I just set the shot up in my back garden, I was trying to get the car looking like it was travelling towards the camera...(not 100% convinced I succeded on that though!)

    The camera was set to take a "close up" shot and this was the best one from a few at different angles etc

    I havn't processed the shot in anyway, as it looked pretty good straight from the camera.

    I should add it is a Nikon Coolpix 5200!

    I like this one too.

    You should have used a slower shutter speed though to blurr the wheels to show movement :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I could have done, but the car wasn't moving, I was on my own and I did try using the radio control and taking a picture, but they were rubbish!

    I did have one shot where the car got stuck, and the back wheels were spinning, and that looked OK, the trouble is my Dell PC has died and I have lost most of my pictures! Also the angle was not as good... :(

    That's a great shot Nicholas, really inventive. Is the white space around the picture intentional?
