On the corner of 3rd St. and Van Buren, downtown Phoenix. I was trying to get a longer exposure (and did with some following shots), but I'm quite happy with the motion while still being able to make out the bus...as opposed to one long blur of lights.

This shot reminds me of time slowing down and then suddently racing to catch up with itself.

The purple light is cool. The streaks are always fun. I notice you have it set to ISO100.

Excellent effect with the bus, I had not really considered that before. Well thought out.

Really fun shot here! I really like the crispness, not to mention the vibrant colors, of the streaking lights, as well as the distortion at 18mm, making the traffic light step into the frame, which I think greatly adds to the sense of motion.
