This is an older shot that I took with fellow photographer Dave Harvey. It has been cropped down a bit due to the lens flare from the buildings lights that were turned on suddenly while taking this shot.
I was using a 16-35 wide angle lens to capture this image, which I think is great for cityscape shots like this. I just wish that the light were not on so I sould have got the mountains in the background.
I have adjusted the levels and the hue/sat a tiny bit and then cropped it down. The beauty of this area is that they actually made it that colourful and the lights on the monument and expressway actually change, pretty cool I think.

Wow!! Incredible colors! A pity it is so small..
Try to rotate it just a bit to correct the slite tilt.

I think the main point of this photo are colors (very well executed) and the shape in the middle. Would like to know about your camera ;-)

Great colours and the light trails really show the frenetic activity of the city. Your cropping works well for me.

This is an excellent picture. Colors and the arcs drawn by the two main highways. I like very much

Really nice with all the light stripes from the cars. The 'monument' in the middle of the roundabout looks like a steady and solid rock in the middle of all that movement.
