    Although what happens in 'Vegas, stays in 'Vegas, those who go must return to real life.

    The traffic was very processed, too much. :) Thanks for commenting.

    What bugs me is that that the fixed objects are too soft

    I love it!

    It's like a ghost highway, possesed with bad drivers who must aimlessly drive for all eternity!

    That's one of the two things that bug me too a crop and a patch from one of the exposures might be able to fix it though. I'll probably get out there next Sunday (traffic was fairly light this weekend) and do it over. Thanks.

    That's pretty much the point. It's for something I'm writing regarding game trails that developed into footpaths, to wagon trails, and then railroads etc. ad nauseum into today's freeway; It will be the final photo in the series.

    What I was/am going for is an unsettling, contrasting, over-processed, slightly noisy look to convey the annoyance, pressure and discomfort of driving through this gob-n-garbage.

    Challenges were; high winds, cross traffic on the bridge with me and the resulting bridge deflection/shake. I was a bit surprised that only two people honked their horn from the freeway and I think one flipped me off.

    Anyway, I appreciate the comments and see that it'll be a do-over.

    Mission accomplished! :lol:

    Though there may be some technical difficulties,
    I still got road rage just looking at it.
    ( flash-backs of commuting to D.C. haha)

    I hope you post the do-over.

    I think it's fine as is, but if you think you can do better, go at it!
