Default night shot

I was wondering what you guys thought of this shot? Is it RP worthy? What can I do better next time? Thanks.

I'm a little confused by the scene. The headlight trails from the car makes the scene a little awkward and lack of contrast makes the streak blend in with the rest of the scene. The streak isn't real exciting and there is no additional element to support the streak. Certainly not a bad attempt, but I wouldn't consider it RP material.

You need something more than just a streak to really make it work.

A big scene, or at least a signal usually does the trick.

Not all people have the New River Bridge to incorporate in their scenes, Loyd. C'mon, get real.

I'm still a little peeved that shot of yours didn't get a PCA. Really deserved it..

Haha. We are spoiled to have the New River Gorge aren't we?

Nathan;

I don't see anything in focus in your shot.

Try clicking the zoom button when you open the picture. That fixes it for some reason.

Thanks I will try to incorporate a signal or something into it next time. Thanks for the thoughts.

You guys were right but I just wanted to see what they would say. I will try again with a signal or something in it.
