    I was visiting some friends up in Boston, and had about half an hour of shooting while they had rehearsal at the New England Conservatory. Here was the result:

    3. "Zoom Zoom" Don't you love it when a random commercial photo op pops up? (Updated)

    It was shot through tinted glass, so even though it was still light out, I needed a fairly long shutter speed (1.3" I believe) with a wide open aperture, creating the glowing lights and trails. In Lightroom, I did some contrast work, and more curves in PS. Sharpened, and that's it!

    Thanks a ton :)

    I almost with the shutterspeed on the first was longer to make those light trails longer. I like the colors and contrast in it. The 2nd is cool.. i think i'd crop it into a square shape and get rid of that big empty block on the left, have the globes go from corner to corner. Nice b/w contrast though, I like that. 3rd is a nice shot, but personally doesn't do much for me.

    I really like the first shot! Great composition and the way the traffic signals are lit up with the streaking car lights... top notch!

    I love the composition of the first one...for some reason the upside down "ONLY"s really grab my eyes attention. The effect with colours/lighting you have achieved is also really cool.

    I also really like the second one, I'm a big fan of photos like that, with a line of the same object leading the eye away.

    Yep, another voice saying that first shot really kicks butt. So sharp, and I like the light trails.

    1st one is the kind of shot I keep trying to take but I always ends up with some rubbish, unlike yours!

    2nd one is also great

    not sure about the 3rd one as its just a car and not an Otter :lol:
