This picture is taken from an overpass by my apartment. Watching the traffic is my version of watching water go by a river in the city.

I really like the composition of this and how the lines seem to converge at the top. Also, you have done well at properly exposing the lights without blowing any of them out. Also, you have managed to keep the noise at a minimum in the shot.

I really can't think of any thing major to suggest to improve this. Some little things might have helped it like if it somehow had a singular focal point or if the colors were a bit more brilliant instead of with a warm orangy/yellow glow. I do think it was probably hurt by the people that think more than one shot of a similar subject should score lower, which is unfortunate. This is a technically strong picture, and is very well done.

Best to you in future challenges.

I dont like it at all, I think the effect that you used is used to much in the contest and thus doesnt make the photo original.

I like the way the streetlamps appear like asterisks.

One of the better looks at this theme, if it were only the top half I would have scored this one 2 points higher
