    I like this. It looks like it should be done in neon lights. Great capture.

WOW! Thank you all for your kind words. I entered this photo a few months ago then the June theme came up so into the contest it went again. What a cool surprise!

You've all inpsired me to get out and shoot today. Thanks for the kind words.
Visvajit, here are the details:
No flash, Focal length 55mm, F22, 8 seconds (tripod), Center weighted metering.
I had to play with the exposure depending on if I was shooting tail lights or more direct headlights. Here's an example of what happened with headlights in the shot...

Thanks Cyn and Janine. I really enjoy your shots. "Showin Off" great lighting and composition, "Shake it Up", increadible freeze of time (with just enough motion).

Felicitaciones Peter por el premio, fantástica foto. Además ese lugar fue uno de los más afectados por el Tsunami, lo cual le da más valor. Como esta ahora?

Thank you ALL. I've looked through many of your galleries and am trully blown away. To be in such company is motivational to say the least! Infact, last night I spent 4 hours shooting here in Bangkok and may have just got a couple nice ones out of it. Time to delete and add to the gallery...
