I had taken a similar long-exposure at this location several months ago. However, I was never quite satisfied with the result. So I decided to go back and try again, using some different techniques. I used a wider aperture and faster shutter speed, waited until the sky was fairly dark, lowered the temperature in post, etc. Because of the changes I made, the resulting photo turned out to be sharper, the colors were more pronounced, the light trails were not as clustered and the photo as a whole looks more “futuristic.” Whenever I see this photo, it makes me want to move to a city.
