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... #3100158

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!
