I suppose capturing light trails is a bit like shooting waterfalls and rapids. You take A LOT of shots and go through each and every one of them until you find a good mix of elements. Some of the best photogs take upwards of 50 to 70 shots of one single abstract waterfall composition. Well, I went through 10 shots here before I became bored and had to find something else to shoot. I am not exact thrilled with any of the 10, but I worked on 3 images and like this one. Maybe if there were more cars, but granted, it was 1:30 in the morning.
