About a week ago I went with one of my buddies to do some long exposures. This was my first time ever doing long exposures and I really enjoyed doing them. I found it really relaxing because I could take my time, set up my shot and fiddle with my exposure as much as I wanted as I wasn't trying to anticipate or capture a specific moment anything. This one is probably my favorite:

Shot with Canon t2i (550d) and 18-55mm (f3.5-5.6) (i bought my 24-70mm 2.8L a few days later)
30mm
30 seconds
f11
iso 100

Great job. The only thing that would make it better would be if there was a "S" in the road or a turn. This not a criticism of your photo mind you as I think you nailed it, just a suggestion on how to make it even more interesting next time.
Also, have someone run around in the lane on camera right. The back lights of the cars show up better when the cars are hitting their breaks! (Just kidding)
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tim,
nice shot. I checked your photos at 500px.com and found the photo "tracks", which is even better. The sky is not that dark, so something of the environment can be seen. Also I miss some eyecatcher in the foreground.

Thank-you for the feedback, I really appreciate it!

Mark, I find that I'm drawn to straight lines for some reason. No doubt an "S" would be interestng. At some point I'll have to do another shot like this on a more interesting road. Also, I like your suggestion for getting more break lights! I should do another photo like this somewhere there is a police speed trap haha

Olaf, I also really like "tracks" when doing that photo I sat their and played with the framing and exposure for like 15 minutes. I probably should have spent some more time on this photo. Regardless, I really like both of them.
