its hard to tell, but are those streaks the tail lights resulting of the slow shutter speed? I think the angle isn't quite right for that because it blends in too much with the buildings in the background. Maybe a camera angle higher in more angled toward down the street?

I agree with ewheeler a higher camera angle make the light trail less lost to the background building. Also you have a bit to much of the road for my taste.

Hello!
Thanks for posting.

Itīs not the angle thats wrong in that case. Itīs a bus driving by. Thatīs why the light is so high.

Best regards/Daniel

Thanks shoturtle!

I will have to catch a car next time instead then;-)

As for the road, I didnīt have my camera stand with me so Iīve had to improvise using a thing on the street as a camera stand. So thats why Iīm not as close to the street. Maybe also the angle could be changed a bit or I could crop the pic a bit?

Best regards/Daniel

That would do it. If is was a sports car low to the ground it might be a very interesting shot with the building lights in the background.

Yeah!
I will have to try it again the next time Iīm in stockholm. I will also take my stand with me. I shot several shots this night, but there were only 2 that came out sharp because I didnīt have my stand or remote with me.

Take care/Daniel

I'd also aim for a darker foreground as you did in the other post. Not as much contrast to make the light stand out in this shot.
