*First Place December:* David Baures, 41, police officer, Arlington,VA “I
wanted to show my Dodge Charger in motion, but watching my equipment dangling
from a rig makes me nervous. So one night I drove to the parking lot of a
local shopping center—blurred into streaks, illuminated signs imply speed.
I mounted my camera to a Manfrotto Magic Arm, connected by heavy-duty suction
cup to the car hood. Then I repeatedly opened the shutter while driving
slowly in a circle.” *Tech specs:* Sony Alpha 300 with Sigma 10–20mm
f/4.5–5.6 lens and Hoya polarizer. Exposure, 4 sec at f/6.3, ISO 100.
