I got stucked in a traffic on the road (because of an accident) to a really small citty in Minas Gerais/Brazil (São Sebastião da Vargem Alegre).
Then i was playing with the speed shutter when i thought of this picture for the challenge. Like the other one (of my first challenge), i don't expect much for this, just more good advices so i can improve more things on my next tryes.
Thanks for the oportunity!
See you soon!

I agree. I think a 4.85 is a little harsh for this. I think the golden light and the foggy detail in the autumn bushes makes it pretty interesting.

My first photography teacher used to always harp on our photos saying, "There's no real subject". I think maybe that may be why it was votes so harshly, there isn't a clear "something" that says, "Look at this. This is it!"

surprised this did not score higher, i am thinking maybe a more interesing backdrop would help or maybe point the camera more down the road to get a longer view of the light trail, nice job though i like it
