this was shot from an overpass where the only indication i had that traffic was coming was the headlights. as i no clue as to how many cars would be coming, all i could do was pop the shutter and hope for the best. it took about 30 shots over a 15 minute period to get this. funny thing, though, i wasn't even thinking about the challenge--i was just shooting for fun.

cropped, slightly adjusted levels, curves, b/c, hue/sat, saved for web.

I like being able to read the merge sign against the "rush" of the red traffic - cool shot.

Beautiful & creative shot, but is this your destination? Challenge stipulates "Give us a sense of where you dream of going, or where you're fated to go."

well done, I esp like the "lava-like" glow in the top left. fits not too comfortably into the destinations category in my head, but I give you the benefit of doubt. Good luck

Awesome and very striking image. I would've removed the arrow and the merge as the eyes tend to rest on them after following the red curved lines. 8
