    Not bad at all, well-executed but I think it needs a stronger sky to make the image. It also looks a little tilted to me.

    First I thought "tilted", too, but the houses on the left seem to be very parallel to the border, so it must be the curve in the road that suggests "tilt".
    I think this one's just as good as these photos can be, nothing would need to be changed to bring about this effect of light streaks. The sky is nice enough, to my mind, and the good thing is that it is still retaining some blue. Right after sunset seems to be the ideal time for photos of this kind. Well done.
    And welcome to ThePhotoForum!!!

    Nice shot...what's the horizontal streak at the bottom 1/4 of the pic?? Did a drunk man cross the street with a lantern?

    Maybe a bird carrying a flashlight flew across the frame.

    I like it! I've tried taking similar shots near my area but always after dark. I think I'll try near dusk to see if I can get more detail and color in the sky.

    this ones nice

    i like how the light trains are relaly defined and not really "busy"
    really exact curves give it a simple effect!
