I think this is a great shot. I really like how the headlights, and the road for that matter, give us a nice c-curve through the photo ending in the corner. I also like how you can see the sunset along with the cityscape in the background. The star affect on the lights can go either way for me, I kind of like them, but in some ways they are kind of distracting too, but they are very difficult to avoid with a long exposure like that, so I don't know what else you could have done.

So many things about this shot are great. I really like the background, the large building on the hill, the tall building, and all those lights that have that star effect. It looks like you took this at the perfect time of day because it is dark but yet you have an awesome sunset. A winner! LOVE IT!

Really nice shot. Great light trails you got there. I like the star effect you got with the lights with your small aperture. The only thing that bothers me is there may be too many of the star lights too bright in the picture. They kind of overwhelm the intended subject of the shot of showing the movement of the headlights. JMO Do love the effect of the building in the background. Again it would be a stronger image with fewer lights in the forefront so that your eye can find it's way back there easier.

I really like the action that is portrayed in this. The "star" from the lights is a bit distracting but at the same time uniform, and incorporated.

Overall a fabulous picture. There are a few little things that are a bit distracting - i.e. the Capitol Building is in the phone lines - but overall what an awesome shot!

I really like this shot...but my eye is drawn more to the star shaped lights than the streaks from the car, which is probably more what you wanted us to look at. I like the color and I like the sunset in the background...although, I might have guessed it to be the sunrise...anyways...it adds to the photo and draws your eye in.

I really love this shot. Great job! I wanted to do something similar to this but couldn't find as great of a location as this...the curve of the street and the trail lights makes the picutre. I also kind of like the star lights.

Favorite picture of the challenge. Love the placement and colors of the image. The only thing I think that could have been done slightly better is to have had the lights that are closest to the left continue all the way through the picture to the right. But very well done.
