    Had to stand a bit in the street, right at a corner where cars turn somewhat sharp...I had a spotter watching out hehe.

    My eye caught the green colours from a distance, when we were doing another shoot, so we moved in to investigate the possibilities.

    Exposure: 8 sec
    Aperture: f/13.0
    Focal Length: 10 mm
    ISO Speed: 100

    Nice shot. I am usually not a fan of tilted pictures but this works. I love that green building. It's an instant eye catcher.

    I find tilting a shot like this, with light streaks, works better most of the time than a straight shot... the tilt adds more of a sense of action.

    Thanks for the comments.

    For me the amount of tilt detracts from the sense of motion here by making the streaked lights to close to parallel with the foundation of the frame.

    I also find the composition unbalanced and have the sense it would have been a stronger image as a straight up vertical.

    But that's all opinion.

    It's a well executed image that appeals to it's author, and that's what goes in the bank.

    Very cool! Love the vantage point; its like looking down a tunnel. Definitely drawn to the green building (really cool) then I look down the tunnel. What's your typical focus point for a shot like this?

    One more thing I might crop out that street light in the right; the halo on it is a little distracting.

    The original tilted version is fantastic. It really gives the sense of motion.
