    _DSF1427.jpg _DSF1419.jpg Was stymied in what I wanted to shoot today as the fence gaps were too small so I had to improvise.....

    I really like the nighttime shot - very dynamic light with the long exposure on the traffic and it works really well as a comp. You have a good vantage point for that scene.

    The lower foreground in the second image doesn't quite work for me as it doesn't really do much of anything for the scene above.

    I like them both but maybe crop a bit off the bottom of two.

    Thanks guys. I was not really happy with either shot, but I figured they were worth posting. The second one was earlier in the day and I had hoped to take pics from farther left and do light trails showing a much wider view of the city and down the highway, but I only had my larger camera and lenses and the holes in the fence were too narrow to shoot through the darn fencing from the bridge so I just took a quick snap from adjacent to the bridge (where there was no fence). When I shot the first one, the clouds had moved in and the sky kind of sucked, but I tried anyway as I had not had time to get out and shoot in a while so I just tried to make something decent. Anyway, the second pic is already quite a crop. I crop it further as suggested and then show you the original, lol. I really was not intending to do anything with this, but I liked the sky/clouds so I figured it was worth posting. _DSF1419-2.jpg _DSF1419-3.jpg

    The pano crop definitely helps the daytime image. It's hard to make a ground level freeway interesting during the day. It is a nice skyline/cloud scene.

    Hey Stephen, #1 is really special with the lights on the buildings and the streaking cars. I do also like #2 with those clouds and soft light. I had the opposite take on it from Ben, I was actually wishing there was just a little more at the bottom to show a little more of the traffic, I think that could make for a nice anchor on the photo.

    Hmm, I guess I hadn’t scrolled down far enough or I had forgotten to press refresh from when I first viewed it because I hadn’t seen the edit and the original of #2 when I commented.

    so looking at it, I think Bens suggestion was the best one, I think that crop works well. I do think the clouds and light in #2 make it a worthy photo.
