    so sat & sun i decided id head up to winton for the Summer Matsuri was a long weekend consisting of drifting day/dusk/night. The night time stuff really did push my skills but i think i did ok next time i think ill remove my UV filter due to some of the shots getting light bounce of some sort off the headlights....

    Nice work :)
    My favourite is actually 15 - but imo it would be better again if you composed/cropped with the horizon on the top third line, car wheels + smoke on bottom third line, and car on the intersection of the left and bottom third lines -

    I reckon that's a cracker.
