Had no time this week, so last thing Sunday night I rushed down to the local freeway tunnel entrance, which wasn't lit, so I drove around to the other side which was lit with halve the lights on the pillar out. Pitch black and overcast so no sky detail, next to no traffic, so not much in the way of light trails. Better than the blurry, shaky hand held shot through a dirty windscreen I have driving through the tunnel though :)

Hit with Post Proc.
levels, exposure,could balance, topaz photo pop, high pass sharpening (masked), saturation (masked), USM (masked), cloned out a couple of bright dots (noise from long exp?).

There must be quite a few dpc'ers who live near that tunnel. All of the shots of this tunnel are nice.

It's actually the Melba tunnel entrance, but great shot though.
