Response to Celebration (Reply #15)

49. It contains some happy accidents.

The light effects from the headlight beams that play along the length of the road and buildings are actually made by the same vehicle that left the tail light trails (which makes sense, if you think about it) but the car headlights peaking just over the rise at the end of the road give the impression that they are the source of the headlight path (on the road surface, at least, to my eye). This was a 6sec. exposure, iirc.

I didn't plan it that way; I was going for the tail light trails, and never even considered catching the headlights' path. Catching the car coming over the rise was a complete accident, as it occurred just as the shutter closed.

I adjusted for clarity in Lightroom to sharpen the effect of the lamps in/on the building on the left.

I have several other shots from this series that I also like; unfortunately, they are on an external hard drive which I haven't been able to get my new laptop to recognize. I need to take it to a computer place and have the contents (including six years worth of photos) transferred to a new external drive.
