Day 193 - Rotation

When I started setting this shot up, I thought I could shoot this at ISO 100 f/9 and about 2-6s.  I quickly found out that I had to increase the ISO to 400 f/2.8 and 6s only gave me a faint glow from the glow stick.  From my test before adding in the flash I found 30s gave me a nice glow.  I did doctor this photo up a little in post; at 30s the street lights coming in the garage windows began to bleed into the top of my exposure above the wheel.  When I took this shot, I set my shutter to blub and timed my exposure using my phone and then released the shutter when the glow stick was out of the frame.
