    The long exposure really makes this shot! Otherwise, it just would not have the same impact! In my top 5.

    Really like the strong lines and multitude of colours running through it. Just a thought, I wonder if a tighter crop (a panoramic crop), getting rid of some of the black upper and lower would help or hinder the final image.

    Thanks for all your comments. Michael is correct and if you look closely at the far end, you'll see the bracing for the enclosure on the outside walkway - not sure of the purpose but they add more each day - in the interim, you can walk right out there! The light painting was just a lucky catch on my first exposure - red white and blue - I doubt I'd catch the blue again if I sat there all night. As to the exposure, got it right on the first try-- I must be learning something! --though you do have a little leeway in the longer exposures. I agree the off stair at the far end and construction equipment takes something from the shot but as to cloing out or a tighter crop, I'm uncertain.

    Nice choice of exposure. Highway of heroes - right? I thought this bridge was supposed to be totally enclosed? The structure etc in the right background is distracting and I prefer the shot with it cropped off completely. I love the colour in the bridge structure contrasted with the dark sky and the ribbon lights.

    Love the good clean lines of the bridge and the traffic flow

    I like the composition /structure of this & light streaks are very good too, so gets a vote from me.

    Very crisp shot. This photo takes great advantage of having been taken at night, and the colors work really well together.

    Very striking graphics against the car lights. A tricky piece of photography to get just the right exposure

    Nice symmetry, and the long exposure turning the lights of the cars into streaks, makes this image really pop!

    In my top 3. Very nice shot!

I am debating if this would have been better if you cropped out the right quarter of the shot and just concentrated on the portion of the bridge over the roadway.

    a good night shot without lots of traffic light trails, but enough to show road
