A fine stand of huge ginkos always gives a great show in November.

Slowest possible shutter speed while trying to keep details out of the background. There were cars going by constantly. Aimed at the base of the trees and panned upward quickly during exposure. I had to take several shots to get the positioning I wanted, without too much blur, or too much detail.

Actually works very well and there is enough difined lines to make this blur work and stir up feelings/emotions. Im not keen on the red lights as a small nit and would have prefreed to have kept this purely natural without human presence. Very artistic. Great effeort and liek this very much

Looks like it could be a great shot, but the blur is distracting. A little might have been artistic, but this is too much blur.
