Hi Beatkat. Yes, the vehicles were actually stopped. There was a traffic light in front of the gray sedan so I took the opportunity while they weren't moving. I was also leaning/bracing against a traffic sign for added stability while I took this image. Thanks for looking!
Many thanks for the comments Bearcat. We were on our way to Simi, from Rhodes. Took this about 2am from the upper deck, as you say is nice being so high and able to see lots going on. The engines were stopped, so I was able to use the handrail as a tripod to give more stability.
Previously posted shot, but one night shot I love. Fishing boats in the Old Port, Portland, Maine about 10pm. It had just finished raining and the City was eerily quiet, very fun time to be out shooting....this is looking down the pier into the Gulf of Maine.....decided not to frame the shot for posting to enhance the blackness of the sea off the left of the composition....."fade to black" as it were.

Another one from the same trip, a little earlier in the evening, I was walking under the neon sign as it came on, so I took the shot.....slightly tweaked the Gamma, contrast, colors....rain had just stopped..... D40x- 18-55mm @ 18mm Auto setting- Flash off 1/80sec. - F4.5 ISO 200
