    doesn't really work for me as the title demands more... prob someone hard at work, swearting etc....

    picture wise, it a bit like snapshot as composition is dead centre... the light trails also dun add much to the pic...

    sorry for being harsh...

    Well.. you can always try again..

    In my opinion.. maybe a tighter crop would have definitely helped the picture.
    There are quite some empty space in the bottom and in the top as well..



    Does it look better?
    You can say NO if you think its not better.. ahah

    Yes better, emphasised the motion - but the police car is too dead centre. also the pic proportions too narrow which on it own not aesthetic, unlike the 'golden ratio' proportions.

    Looks like its taken during one of the fireworks displays on the bridge. hee...

    I also agree that tighter crop is better plus crop away a bit on the right side to give more space on the left to suggest the motion of traffic.

    mm..i personally dont think its wrong.
    its a matter of composition, and personal preference...
    and in art, there's no such thing as "wrong".

    Im not trying to defend here on what i did to your image.
    Often, i put the subject on the "Rule of Third" points... but sometimes... i put them in the center... sometimes.. even worse.. I put them a little bit off center on purpose. Its just a matter of taste.
