    Great colours here! (plus, I doubt I could stand so still for 4 seconds) Have you tried cropping above the wall, leaving some black space, and cloning out, or cropping, the light pole? As well as a little bit of straightening. Great image!

    Great shot, love the vivid colors. I think you should crop the light out as well, leaving only a little black. Looking forward to the results!

    cool shot - but can i ask a ddddduuuuuuuummmmmbbbbbbbbb question?? i know using a slow shutter speed in photography of ex. waves/running water, the result is beautiful, soft/cottonwool type water ..... so what benefits do you get from taking a shot like this using a long exposure where all is still?? Please excuse my 'vauge-ness!!' but you've gotta ask to learn right?! xx
