    Month two, I thought for a while about what to do this month and it's something I rather enjoy.

    I'd like there to be some sort of Q&A that goes along with the images, whether it be technical or artistic in nature. The objective of this is get you shooting and looking for symmetry in your shots, not to cull your backlog of photos.

    Try to not clutter the thread with too many images of your own (to keep the critique workflow manageable) and try to provide helpful critique to others (as it pertains to the theme and the technicalities of shooting).

    Capture motion: panning shots, long exposures, freeze action - get out there and shoot it.

    cannon t3i 50mm 1.8f lens (probably not ideal but hey)

    settings were bulb 8.0f 800 iso I think(I was messing around with different settings so I might be a little off)

    I'll be giving as much rep as humanly possible to whomever shoots night-time light trails. When I was shooting with film a few years ago that was one of my favorite things to shoot, just set a long exposure time with a high f-stop and see what happened.

    Nice fireworks guys, and MFB - I've been waiting to shoot something like that for some time. Now to convince myself to get up in the morning before the sun tomorrow.

    Hey, I forgot about this one. My buddy and his girlfriend did this on Canada day. I think it came out looking kinda terrifying. :lol:

    Is implied motion acceptable?

    I say keep them coming, try some longer exposure and rear curtain sync.

    edit: Sorry, my wifi's being brutal right now, I have no idea how I ended up quoting my own post.

    I got my sd cards back from the last wedding, so I'll cull through those tomorrow if I have time. I should have some good action shots from the reception.
