Obviously a motion shot. I'm still working on this type of capture, as you can tell. I love the color contrast between the warm streetlight and the cool moon. Perhaps not the best shot, but it's a start. My first official nightime traffic picture.

Yes, the moon gives a nice effect, and contrasts the orange lights of the lamps

Nice, Ryan. Sometimes you can get cool shots like this by getting waaay down to the ground, and then get a shot from "underneath" the lights.

Powerful shot. I've not attempted motion shots myself but it's on my list. Great example.

This shot looks great. I like "invisible car" shots.

This is a wonderful shot. Fully of energy, rich color, and good detail for a tripod on a busy street - 30 sec - full of vibration. The length of the streaking lights is a very nice capture. Well done!
