The Legislative Council building in Hong Kong is the backdrop; commuters are in the middle and the number 15 bus zipped past to provide the erm... swoosh!

Thanks all... I'm very lucky to be showcased as the POTD.
Here's what you do: As soon as it gets dark, find a good location, select a long shutter speed, and take about 30 photos. Delete 29 of them, but I'll bet one of them will be a gem.
It worked for me!
Tim

Tim, Beautiful man. Just beautiful. Do you mind if I ask a question? I noticed that the whole scene is in focus. Did you use a high f/stop?

I don't remember Matthew! It's a wide angle lens so that helps and I sharpened the scene a little in Photoshop.
