Nicely composed and the colours are great.The red rear lights on the right of the shot seem to spoil it a little for me,they´re not realy needed(just a thought)

Again perfect use of the lines and lights. I like the strange blueish colorcast here...

@ordinaryimages: Hi there, Jerry. This was a Sunday evening in a very industrial section of Oakland - hence the lack of activity. My guess is that I couldn't have gotten this any other time.

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

Another excellent shot! I like how you framed that single far light in the "window". Well done

@Magda: Thanks, Magda. This is one of those emergency access doors to the Interstate freeway. They usually have doors but - for whatever reason - this one was open. You know I can't pass on any odd opportunities, so - click.
