    Thanks guys! I have a 10-22mm Lens, however for the Audi TT I was using my friends 8-15/4. I can't afford that one :D

    The 1st and 3rd were shot on my Rebel Xti (400D) so the ISO noise is so bad that I had to shoot way underexposed. All I do is just bump the exposure back up. Then Lighten up the shadows, increase clarity and few other settings. The 3rd one I shot at 30sec exposure and just lit it up with LED light. I have the Lightroom settings in the before after photos below:

    Okay so one tip I can give, is that there were many people walking around with flashes taking pics at night. If you drag your shutter, throw away a flash you can get a lot of natural light, and get all the saturated colors from longer exposure. Most of the time flash makes it look boring. Also GET CLOSE!

    There are way more photos from this event here: http://goo.gl/3BgLd

    Here is one I have been holding on to for a while now, only just got around to editing it.

    Stormfront at Sunset by JasonBottin, on Flickr

    The lower half of the picture may look dark on some monitors, I may have to tweak it again slightly to get it just right, consider it a work in progress. Let me know what you think

    Gorgeous. Love the way the texture of that grasses echos that of the clouds. With regards to lightening the lower half, I'm not sure if you'd lose some of the effect the picture currently has by doing it.

    You don't have to tweak it, it looks great the way it is. :thumb:

    Jason - I agree with the others, your shot looks fine as it is. It's very nice, btw :)

    I reckon this could use some work in post to make it pop a bit more. Contrast, vibrance, etc.

    I'm low on juice at the moment, I can give it a go tomorrow.

    Very nice! :thumb:

    Here's some more of mine from Sweden (if you can't tell, it was raining almost ALL the time)
