Also what'd you do to get the starry effect?

I think a lot of it has to do with how wide the headlights are from each other, and you must be looking directly at them. I couldnt recreate the same starry look with my Gallardo, I think the lights are too far apart from each other. It was also stationary at the time too, not sure if that matters.

As for settings, I did the lowest shutter speed it would allow, 1/60 which I dont think really mattered. F/stop was maxed out, and exposure was raised to +3.0, and I was shooting with the Cool Filter, Panning Mode 2 and I was in a tunnel.

Im going to take some more cars out to the Photo Travel section to see if I can consistently recreate that same effect. That was the first time I've managed to do it, and I have a feeling it was by accident, lol.
