Busy junction light trails at night

This is my first time taking a long exposure photo, so for a start, I choose the traffic junction near my house to experiment and learn the tricks of long exposure.

 

This was taken from the height of a pedestrian bridge last week after a few tries through some trial and error, using a small f/20 aperture and a 20 second exposure time. The prime difficulty is actually on how to get in sync with the traffic lights, as a few shots were ruined by traffic remaining stationery during the long exposure. Perhaps next time, I should use a longer exposure to minimize this problem.

 

I may upload a few more good long exposure photos once I start committing some time to clear my backlog :)
