Fast Car

I took this ‘fast car’ shot a couple of weeks ago but it doesn’t really fit the normal blog posts so got put to one side. I think it warrants an airing, so here it is. The technique for taking this kind of shot is something I picked up from the excellent FotoBuzz team.

Any ideas on how fast the car is travelling?

    My guess is, between 20-30kmph. It is probably not a main road so there is a speed limit of about 50kmph 🙂

    Darko, the speed limit there is 60mph (96kph), but you are spot on with how fast it was actually going. 🙂
