This photo was taken on the roof of a parking garage in a very cold day in Boston. By chance or "accident" The car on the left had broken down, and the one on the far left was moving at a snails pace almost still, which provided a nice contrast to the streaking head and tail lights on the right. I slowed the shutterspeed to 13 seconds, had an f-stop of f/22, and kept the ISO at 200.

raw conversion, cropped out the towering street/highway lights, hue & Saturation adjustment filter (master +25).
Unsharp mask Amount 101, radius 1.2,treshold 2 .

Love the long exposure. The lines are nice and smooth.

I do not mean to be negative but this has been done before by many others. It's still a good picture just not innovative.

Nice motion shot. The pic is tilted down to the right, some. You can see the horizon if off in the background. But the headlights streaming in the middle of the pic make it a neat image.

Nice light trails, but the city skyline is too cropped and crooked. Just does not work for me as is.

Hi there,
What a great show you have in here, I would love to the top of the building included in the picture as well, maybe vertical composition and zooming out a little would help. This is of course my humble opinion, and doesn't mean it is not a great picture by any mean, very well done, Regards,
