That blur to the left is a bus that flew passed me, I thought it was supposed to stop at the bus stop. Maybe the bus operators don't stop some places after midnight.

I like the ghost effect of the bus with the long shutter, but it looks as thought you just pulled to the side of the street and took a shot. I can understand maybe not wanting to get out of the car in a bad neighborhood or something, but just turning off the headlights and aiming up a bit higher to not get the car roof would have helped (or just crop off the bottom).

I'd like this better if the vehicle was cropped out.

Boring photo, but you get points for the perspective.. cool.

The focal point is the bus line. It's a pity there is no more city visible. It would've been nice "road" picture.

PS. After second thought and based on comparison I'm bumping it up.

I like what the headlights do to the street.

Was this taken through a car windshield? It may do better in a challenge if the exposure was longer. For where you were at, a centered perspective shot of the street might have worked better. good luck.
