Entry Description: I wanted to take an abstract photo of a street that runs alongside Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra. I set up my tripod at dusk, chose a low shutter speed, and started tracking vehicles. In the final photo, I wanted the vehicle to be sharp enough to be recognisable, but the background to be blurred into a series of stripes. I also wanted to capture the beams of the headlights and the colours of the sunset. It took many attempts, over several days, until I got the shot that I was after.
