Hey, cool! I like this shot. And a simplifier makes the dirt on the window look artistic. I'm always wanting to take pics out my window, but they are always dirty! LOL I'll remember this.

Great catch of a too common sight around here (even without any holidays), Murry. Do you think you should have blurred out that license plate?... you may have ruined the surprise (LOL).

It's only just begun! Great image and great reminder that the best gift is to be simple- stay home and make your own gifts out of twigs and dog hair :-)Holiday shopping, bahumbug- but those dazzling lights- tailights and headlights, that is, who can resist them? great shot!

I am with Amy forget the shopping but then again I guess we will miss out on shots like this. Leave it to you to take traffic and make it a piece of art. Great use of effects Murry.

Out here in the country, we don't see this many cars anywhere but at a Penn State game.
Traffic jams here are ususally caused by farm tractors lumbering down the highway.
Still, I'll do my shopping over the internet, or make something out of all the dog hair ;-)
Happy Shopping, Murry!

Great, Murry! I came about 2 inches from a wreck on Wednesday. Luckily I have good reflexes for an old bag.

Thanks Darren, Brenda, Robin, Donna, Bill, Susan, Carolyn, Debby, Karen and Len! Glad to hear you didn't deploy the old air bags Carolun :0) I didn't actually go in the mall just close enough to see a little traffic. I may try the twigs and dog hair trick also--now which neighbor has a dog LOL!!

Boy, if I could give gifts made out of dog hair, I would be a veerrrrrry generous gift-giver! Our house is full of it! LOL!

Seriously, though, I just love this image, Murry! The glowing red appearance of the tail lights is fabulous! And the simplifier effect really enhances everything. Great work! :-)

Nice one Murry, this just reminds me to stay away from those malls and traffic. I worked retail for a few yrs after college... I now try to avoid the malls at ANY cost!

Good safety message, good idea, good composition, good buzz and good grief you have a lot of cars down there! A traffic jam in Valdez is 4 cars within a mile of each other :-) If you're looking for dog hair I would be very happy to contribute. Would you like white, black, dark brown, tan ..... Good luck in the finals with this great photo, Murry!
