This one was taken at the same time as this one and this one, and relies on the same approach; i.e. 'let's see what happens if I point a telephoto lens out of a moving car at a stupidly slow shutter speed'. Anyway, I guess that this is a technique that I find quite interesting, not least because the results, at least in terms of the details within a shot, are largely unpredictable – and I guess that's quite liberating; and I do think this is something I'll continue to experiment with.

Bottom-line though, as always: does it work? I think so, at least in some ways, but tell me what you think.

Oh, and I suspect that this may be the only photograph I've ever taken at f/32.0, not that that's at all relevant to anything, but I just thought I'd mention it ;-)
