    Good shots. I like #4, are you sure it was night when you took the last two photos?

    The first 3 remind me of some crazy etch-a-sketch on acid. Fun experiements, but not sure I like them.

    The strongest would be the 4th IMO. Nice line going in the image, nice and close and interesting.

    The downfall of #5 would be that little piece of a sign in the foreground seems like it doesnt belong and makes the overall image look more like a quickly done snapshot where not much attention was given to composition. The sky is also not too interesting.

    the first 3... meh... theres gotta be more to look at then some squiggly lines... otherwise it's just squiggly lines...

    the last 2 are nice streak photos... but i'd ask that there be more to focus on besides the streaks..
