    I have larger formats also but this one seemed most suitable for the post.
    What do you guys think?

    It's good, I would have taken it with more of whatever is to the left and removed the water tower/buildings.

    Also might look good B&W.

    Oh I know what your saying but the bridge didn't allow me with the fence. I had to find this spot where it was completely bent over from a car accident or something to even get a clear shot so I was lucky to even get that.

    I'm afraid I simply don't find it interesting enough. It's a good chance to experiment with long shutter speeds and cars, but the road isn't riveting.

    i think this is great as far as technical execution goes. but the subject is kind of boring.

    if you want to do a straight road (like your photo) it needs to be A LOT of road. but my personal favorites of shots like these are ones that include intersections, so that there are more than one direction of light trails.

    also, you might try to expose for a shorter period, so that all the lights don't merge and it keeps them looking richer and more vibrant.

    I'm curious as to how long the exposure was.
