Argh - Where's my tripod ?

    I mistakenly thought I could get away with a monopod and some straps. Thought was I could tie the monpod to some railings and take the picture using the remote. But no - the traffic has caused no end of vibrations which seem to have been applified by teh railings. Off to the shops to buy a small tripod.

    This is the London Eye - I thought, slow down the shutter to 1 minute to give it a circle of light feel - failed ! 1 minute (or 55 seconds) is the magic number for overlapping the lights.



    Picked up a Slik Mini-Pro III - quite god really.

    That looks ideal - how much and where from ?

    This could be a really striking image with a blur action or use the blur rilters in [email protected] if you have it.

    try Kents blur action.

    The colours are really pretty.

    Thanks for the update - I'll be off to Jessops and Jacobs this lunchtime to see if I can pick up a table top tripod - I'll put the ball head from my monopod on it.


    Haven't tried blur filter and plugins - hadn't thought of it - I'll give it a go and see what turns out. I'm determined to get a sharp image tonight as well.
