New work in the Drive-by series. Up to recently, I've been shooting Drive-by with a 17-55mm lens, currently I'm experimenting with wide-angle and later will be incorporating some strobist combinations. Despite very regular sensor and lens cleaning, I'm discovering some very weird flare anomalies using auto focus which I can't explain, but won't be cloning out. More on this in due course.

Photos: 10-20mm lens @ 10mm. Both images are single frame and taken using a tripod mounted on passanger seat of car. ISO 100. top image; 2 seconds @ f/5 and lower image; 30 seconds @ f/22.
