Amazing 'traffic shot'. I will have a similar picture on my blog within the next days... Would love to see this in color too.

@k@: Thank you, Karine - this was a lovely evening and I was surprised how much I enjoyed this image - it seemed a little too 'head-on' as I was taking it.

Super composition, Stephen. The geometry of fence and blended car lights in motion work together so nicely. BW is perfect touch for this photo.

@Viewfinder: Hey, Glenn - thanks - it has a little bit of a sci-fi feel to me.

Wonderful, Stephen. The kind of shot that makes other photographers wish they'd thought of it. Excellent processing.

Brilliant composition Stephen, this one really is a fascinating image. Would never have thought to take such a shot. Excellent lighting, tones, contrasts, and I could go on and on.

@John Maslowski: Thank you so very much, John. This means a lot coming from 'The Master'. Joyous light...

Hi Stephen, thats a really dynamic shot, the static chain fence increases the motion on the highway.
