Your photo has too much exposure, and this is not what your eyeball would see.

I have 8 HID bulbs between my 2 vehicles and I have never been pulled over for it.

just drive around in a busy area. if every 3rd vehicle is flashing you, your lights are aimed too high. if maybe one in 100 flash you, then your ok. also, if you see a cop, drive towards him. if they don't flash ya, your ok.

It's probably not the camera, you just aren't setting it correctly. I am no expert at that, and I have no bragging rights. I suck at it too.

How much heat do those put off??
Looks like you could roast a chicken with them, or at least give it a bad sunburn.
