    Among my top 5. I like your perspective interpreting the theme and the textures and grainess of such long exposure; striking light and colors.

    Thanks for all the comments, suggestions, and votes! I've not had much experience with this camera shooting in the dark. (I suppose you can tell! LOL)

    Great angle and composition. The background detracts a lot, unfortunately.

    Dislike the background but love the road. Great shooting position. Now get up and run! :-)

    Nice perspective but not good colour in the background; I think it would look better adjusted to avoid the orange cast.

    Your treatment of the yellow line is really striking, but I find the sudden transition to the pinkish, strongly out-of focus background to be rather disturbing.

    I think this image is too processed and lacks sharpness in the background. I understand and like the sharp focus on the lines in the foreground; however, the blurriness of the background is distracting.

    I like the almost abstract effect you've achieved here, with an emphasis on colour

    Ha! Forkcandles - Alas, I had no one who would risk getting run over for my photo! Besides, it was so dark, there was not enough light to focus on anything. Thanks for the idea and the comments.

    like the idea i would have got a person to stand nearer the middle of the scene and manual focus. the person then moves ....

    Steve - Thanks for the comments. I tried a higher ISO and had way to much noise. I also tried a smaller aperture, but being at night, there was not enough light and my max exposure was eight seconds, so I yielded to my cameras limitations. (How I miss my FZ50 ...)

aKilter - I fell asleep before I finished working on this one, and had to rush off to work the next morning (entry deadline day), so I just submitted what I had. Didn't notice the sky artifacts until it was too late. Thanks for the comments!

    Theme - 5
Composition - 3 I tried recomposing by cropping just below the bright street light and it makes a much more intriguing image I think. By getting rid of the bright patch of sky and the bright street light, the image is simplified to the yellow lines and the approaching headlights.
Technical - 2 I would have used a higher ISO and a smaller aperture to get better sharpness and depth of field. Nothing is really in sharp focus in the image now. You may have over sharpened to try to compensate, but you can't fix focus by sharpening and it brings out the noise in the image -- look especially at the sky.
Originality - 4 I like your idea and the low point of view.
Overall impression - 4 Strangely interesting!

    Color and viewpoint provide great visual impact. One of my favorites, but not at the top because of processing artifacts, particularly in the sky.
