Taken from the George Bush Turnpike at 3:30 A.M. VERY scary taking this photo. Had a lot of vertigo the whole time, as the top of the turnpike is a good 200+ feet above the highway. Also fun: having the police called on you because highway passers by think you're going to jump off the bridge. Thankfully the police were very understanding, polite, and let me go without so much as a warning, just a caution for traffic. Kudos to those guys! As always, if you have any constructive feedback, I'd LOVE to hear it! This was my first attempt at highway night time photography, and it was a blast, albeit frightening.

Too bad there wasn't more traffic. The lines at top are a bit distracting also. Otherwise well executed!

Nice capture. Too bad about the wires going across the highway.

compositionally I like you shot, those wires going across the shot are annoying but hay what can you do. I think that the lack of light trails in the shot let it down in my opinion. Maybe peak hour would have been a better time. Though you shot does tell a story about what it is like at 3:30.
