thanks for your comments, I appreciate your feedback. I was focusing on getting some nice light trails from passing vehicles whilst using the monument as a backdrop. Traffic passes through the monument and to the left of it. As luck would have it there wasn't much traffic that night. It took some patience but finally a bus passed left of the monument and a car went through at the same time. The bus gave a really good effect.
I'm standing as close as I could safely be to the road. If I took out some of the road from the shot i would lose the effect of the light trails. I'm not sure which would be better.:scratch:
