For the record, the car was accidental. This is a dead-end road from out of the marshlands, and what some dude was doing driving out in the pre-dawn I have no clue. I was shooting this in the natural light entirely, so I counted this as a wasted frame and popped another one off after he was gone. When I processed these later, the "natural" shot was totally blah, and this one was at least "interesting", so in retrospect I should have turned MY jeep around and lit the damned road myself, but that didn't occur to me at the time, and this was shot the morning-of the challenge, so...

Loved the shot but the tail lights crueled it, maybe you could shoot it with the tail light globes removed. Ypu're still in the top 100, I'm no-where.

Nice photo, I like the colors in it. Think it might have been a little better if you got more of the interesting pattern under where the lights are.

Great shot. The lapsed tail light give a lot to this photo. I would have likely scored this lower without them. Neat shot.

I think that the car lights actually spoil a lovely picture.

Wow, Beautiful picture, I think it would be even stronger without the red light streak. Love the transition of colors in the sky and the texture of the grasses.

First impression is nice light, second impression is what a waste of space on the left. You could have made a lot more of the excellent color and the road with a different composition.

The road lit by the car looks good, the light traces do not.

I don't find the light trails very aesthetic.
