    try shooting from a different angle, it might add dimension to your picture.

    yep. a different perspective would yield better results. these images look flat and uninteresting, apart from the streaks of lights.

    Need a tripod to do tis. Shutter speed @ 8 and Aperture Value @ 8.0.

    Thanks for other comment too. Cannot find any gd place to take the shot. tt's the best i could find. I guess it would be better if this shot is taken from a higher ground rite?

    Hi there,

    Interesting shots you got there but can't help but to agree with the rest. The better way to portrait out the head and tail lights streaking effect is to take it from a higher angle or perspective. But the attempt overall is good. I did saw some photos before taken at normal elevation and the effect is still stunning so I believe yours can be further improve.

    For #2, the street light appears quite glaring, a suggestion is to use some filters to lessen the effect or use a 6 point Starbust filter to make it more creative. Overall, good attempt.

    set to Manual (not MF), select BULB shutter speed (beyond 30 secs), use an apperture between f19/22 and a remote to shoot for about 20 secs. you should get a nicer shot, although light streaks would look "thinner". but the smaller apperture also reduces the flare pic 1 seems to suffer. looks like there was some tripod shake too? pic looks a little oof. beware of roads with heavy vehicles as these can cause serious vibrations even on the pavement where you're standing.
