    Grrr...I had typed a lot, and when I posted, the post went all wonky into code. So...the EXIF should be in the image.

    Lol, the cold stone sign got me too!

    #2 is great! I love the effect of the slow shutter and the lights going by. #1 might have benefited from a slow shutter shot too just to get the car motion to keep the focus on the building lights.

    You got #1 at 1/10?! Must be the IS. And some stabilization mojo.

    I like #3 the most. Though compositionally #2 is pretty compelling.

    Something about #3 really does it for me. Good choice on the pano crop as well.

    Wow, I can't believe you folks really like #3!
    It was shot from a car :)

    ISO 100
    15" EXP
    22 Ap
    Nifty Fifty

    I know what made all the light streaks EXCEPT the bright yellow streak.

    Here's another:
    [​IMG]




    As for #1, I actually darkened it in post, a little. The shot was all about the light and reflection. I didn't want details from the buildings. I also waited for traffic to stop, twice. Some cars don't reflect as nicely as others ;). Here's a lighter shot, with moving traffic. This is not the shot I was going for. I had intent behind my shot (#1). I wanted a specific feel.

    Now that you can see this both ways, I want to know...

    How does each image make you FEEL?

    #1(B)
    [​IMG]
    F/4
    1/3"
    ISO 100
    55mm (55-250mm)

    #1 is the same except 1/10" both handheld.

    i really like the 1st shot... you get reflection from the cars from the lights in the buildings... if i had taken that shot I would have done the same thing.

    I like #1 and your pp is correct in my book. This photo is about the reflections and they work very nicely.

    #2 doesn't do anything for me. Personal taste I guess.

    #3 I just love. I don't care what it's about. I just like it.

    I like #4 (also known as: here's another) too but not as much. The composition of that one does not work as well for me.
