I shouldn't like this, but surprisingly I do.

I like the graphic quality, the lines and symmetry. There are two issues that I'm not too keen on. The first is the windscreen wiper, it adds nothing to the image, either clone it out, or crop.

The major issue, my eye doesn't rest as nothing is sharp, I know the difficulties you faced. You could bracket images, then layer in the one with a faster shutter speed, use auto align function in photoshop. You may have to increase the exposure setting first.

One last consideration, this may also look good in mono ( if you can correct the above issue).

I'm the same. Technically terrible but strangely good. I quite like the effect. It would have been evenbetter if just one vehicle were nearer sharp. It is the shapes that make it effective.

looks absolutely super as a thumb view, went straight to it on the page as a point of interest but oddly it looks a lot less ccrisp when opened up.

Nick is bang right, the wiper needs to go, the contrast increasing to make the blacks darker aqnd impossible though it must be, the nearest car needs to be sharper. could you perhaps spirit a sharper car into the picture. i love the perspective created by the side and roof shapes.

Thanks for your comments and advice guys. I know that the sharpness isn't all it should be in this shot, long exposure over a rough concrete surface.
