Back to posting, with a few nightshots.

Lately I have been having fun, photographing my car at night, I like the effects that you can get with different lighting, i.e. flashlight, street lights or the moon etc.

Canon EOS 60D - Canon EF-S 17-85 f/4.0-5.6 (17mm, f/9, 30 sec., ISO-1250)
In this first picture I used a high-power LED flashlight, to get some extra light into the scene, without making the night sky too bright. Moving the flashlight quickly, makes sure that the car is not to bright in some places, and to dark in others. Also this movement gives an added effect in the picture. On this particular night, the moon was very bright, and this made it even easier to make sure the scene was properly exposed.

Shot at 17mm, making the foreground very big and giving an illusion of extreme depth.
There was a lot of street lights, so it was easy to get a well-lit picture, with a great degree of detail.
