    Went looking for good spots to take pictures of freeways last night, however it started to rain right away so i only was able to take 3 shots, this was my favorite. What do you think.

    Was it windy, too? At f22 I would have expected the photo to be in focus from foreground to background, but if there was wind going, than exposing for 30 seconds may well lead to mild shake, even with a tripod!

    That is ONE multi-lane highway!!! Whoa!

    No it wasn't too windy, but the tripod was on a sidewalk right next to a road, i think the wind from the cars passing by may have shaken the tripod quite a bit, and it was raining so i was trying to hold my jacket ver the camera, i may have bumped the tripod a little or something. There were a few factors that may have led to the out of focus picture.

    n00bish question here. How do you take shots like that? Does it have to be a special camera?

    Well, special in the sense that you need to be able to adjust the shutter speed...
    to something REALLY slow.

    no these are in irvine, off sand canyon off the 5 freeway
    surprising that they aren't from anaheim hills cause thats where all my friends live and i go to school down there so i'm over there quite a bit. Needed a change from that place.
