moonlit freeway


I wanted to keep the fence blurry while getting the light trails from the headlights and keeping the freeway sign sharp.
Problems I had:

  • The sun (behind me) was starting to get too bright which made it harder to get the light trails from the cars and caused me to stop down to f22 making the fence a little too detailed.
  • I couldn’t stay in a single spot for too long; otherwise, the moon would end up being blocked out by the chain link fence.
  • Every time I moved, I had to adjust the tripod to get the freeway sign to line up correctly.

If anyone has any ideas on what I could have done differently to make this photo better, you are more than welcome to leave constructive criticism in the comments. Thanks!
