Actual Image Submitted to Slow Shutter Speed

This is the actual image submitted to the contest. The other images submitted were REALLY excellent. The contest moderator / judge posted a comment in discussions that this image was interesting because it was hard to tell what was going on. The guess was that it was the office windows reacting to the lights of passing cars from the parking garage. I'll have to try and get something like that - glass capturing reflections of moving lights in long exposure. Unfortunately, this particular image is nothing so interesting. It is one of the ones with a stabilized camera rotated in slight increments every 2 or 3 seconds. The fascinating part for me was the contrast between the clarity of the image despite the overlays from slightly different portions of the building and the brilliance of the light streaks.

I think this is fascinating in it's process. I can see where it's probably not your most favorite piece, but regardless, it is a compelling image Sandy, slightly blurred and you can feel a sort of motion in the image and a wondering of what the light sources are. It captures an image and gives it an atmosphere... Thanks for sharing!
