Tampere Light Weeks (Valoviikot) bring light to darkest time of the year. Main shopping streets are lit from mid-October to Epiphany. This year is the 40th anniversary of the Light Weeks.
This light figure contains icons of Tampere:
- Näsinneula observation tower
- Male silhoutte is of one of the statues on the bridge across Tammerkoski rapid
- Dam of the water power plant at Tammerkoski
- Lynx is the animal in Häme region coat of arms
(Yes, I was safely standing on the other side of a lamppost than that bus.)

Very nice motion you captured here, in this dynamic night shot. The sign is also exposed well against the dark blue sky.

Good prosopopoeia. Well done.

I like very much the combination of the still lights (the Tampere icons) with the moving ones from the bus... It adds a lot of character to your image, transforming it in much more than another 'clean' nice shot. Very illustrative note too.

I don't know if it is reflection or not, but I like the effect that you can almost see through the bus. I'm not sure if the sign was the main point of the picture but I can't help but focus on the blurry bus. Just my opinion. :) Good Picture.

I always like to capture motion in the urban landscapes at night ... and this photo is unlike any other that I have seen. one gets a feeling as if the bus is coming straight towards you. The big billboard on top acts as a good stalilizer for the sceene.
good work ... thanks for the share ... cheers ... sarju
