    I'm not so sure if I like this one... in some way, I think it looks kinda cool but other times, it's just not a good composition. Opinions please.

    You should try focusing on the road/cars and not the fence. I know those fences suck. Have them in NYC over high ways too lol

    maybe centre yourself with the median as well.. that way you get an even shot of each side of the road

    when I tried something similiar I found that the manual focus was a lifesaver.

    personally i like the fence in focus, everyone takes shots with the blurred cars in focus. this is a breath of fresh air. good job.

    I like the point of view, and I like the fence in focus, leaving the background a bit blurry, yet we know exactly what we're seeing.

    Fine job, and a somewhat fresh perspective on a pretty tired theme.

    i'm wondering if a smaller aperture would allow the DOF to be much greater causing the background to not be so blurry..

    That might make a nice daylight shot.

    Lol no, that is 436, Semoran Blvd. 17-92 is pretty near by though, I think.

    also, now that i think about it.. i'm not sure if focusing on the background would work because there are so much distractions on that place.
    there's like all these trash cans, weird things on median, random store signs that's not all good looking.
