Flew back from FL to Los Angeles and fortunately got stuck in brutal LA traffic WITH my camera AND in the passenger seat while the waning rain and distant sunset created this delight! This is a 5 exposure HDR, tone mapped for that colorful pop. Cloned out some droplets on the windshield and a light off the right side. Curves, Exposure, and Vibrance layers, cropped, resized, sharpened, saved.

This is wild, it looks like a city in a bubble.
