    It would be nicer if you shoot the other direction, the tail lights.

    I like the 2nd pic for the composition, in which the black bridge, and the highway
    behind the trees are given less significance, but 1st picture got better luck so the
    light rays are less congested.

    Do you like the orange tint caused by the sodium lights? I think it makes the picture look "muddy", especially the green plants. Adjusting the white point could give the scene a more attractive set of colours.

    Thanks, but how do I go by it? Can I do it from PS 7? Or the setting from my camera? I am using a D70 btw.

    I'm not familiar with Photoshop 7 (and I find the menu layout of various photoshop versions pretty inconsistent), but I think there's a "colour balance" menu item. You could also try "variations". Alternatively, one cold also adjust the curves individually for the 3 colour channels. Whichever method you use, you can try to reduce red and boost blue and green. The downside is that, since there is so little blue to start with, you may end up with lots of visible noise in the blue channel.

    To illustrate how colourful the result can be, see e.g. here:



    The "original" picture was just as orange as yours. There is no way to get correct colours with this kind of lighting, but I find it more pleasing to eliminate most of the sodium cast.

    The colours are probably still there; you just have to wash the mud off with the image processing software of your choice. But let me emphasize that this is a matter of taste, and some people might prefer the orange picture.
