you could do with rotating just slightly counter-clockwise.

I know the cars are moving, but they might as well be stuck in a traffic jam. Setup wise, this is easily repeatable, at least compared to the ones that require spot on timing or make a mess (water, milk splashes all over the kitchen floor) and need to be "reset" between each shot so I'm afraid when compared to those, I can't score this as high.

This certainly fits the challenge, but the shot is lacking any interest or focal point. Oddly, this would be a great setting for a motion capture where the sign is in focus and the traffic blurred.

Nice photo. Maybe a border to keep your eye on it?

LOL....a highway parking lot doesn't really say motion to me!

But it did evoke a smile...

With all those brake lights on, are they moving? Inquiring minds want to know.
