This is super stunning! I love the angles of the lights going into the sun, the background mts, & big ole glowing sun! Superb!! Lisa

Very, very cool. I got a highway shot that reminds me of this on my way home one night--it's in my gallery. BUT yours is way better. I love the amazing definition on the sun and the repeated street lights as well as the shimmering layer of highway. This is superb as Lisa says. congratulations on your finalist and I certainly hope it will go on. #5535677
