Good Evening, Godless Sodomites.
Success! Sort Of.
While walking the dog last week, over and over (and over, and over), I saw a spot in the road, just round the block from our house. The light, at night, was that classic, sodium halide street-lamp orange: and just accentuated the fall leaves. it also gave a great 'spot' of light, as the rest of the street was mostly dark.

So, I of course, thought "shoot the car here".

However, it took me a few days to organize. It rained, for one. I was tempted to shoot in the rain, it could have been a neat look, but then decided against it. I definitely wanted to light paint the car while shooting a long expsure. In fact, I was going to do this Friday night, but it turned out that my ten-million candlepower spotlight had given up sometime in the last three months. So, Saturday morning, I went and bought a new million-candlepower spotlight, charged it up, and went shooting that night after I'd put the dog down for the night.

25 seconds exposure, f/11, ISO 200
Nikon D70s, Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6, Generic 1-mil candlepower spotlight

I had a second, 20-second exposure attempt, here, as well. I'm pretty happy with both shots, although a wider beam would have been helpful for the light painting.
