The "hustle & bustle" of New York City

New York is often called "the city that never sleeps", and today's
picture by photographer Nick Sadowski certainly lends a bit credence
to that nickname. Here is Mr. Sadowski to tell us about the image:
"I took this picture while vacating in New York City from the
walkway over the Brooklyn Bridge. I aimed to show with the
traffic trails the constant hustle and bustle that is
with New York City. The Financial District in lower
lit up at night simply adds to the effect I was
trying to create.
I shot this with my Canon EOS 5D with my 16-35 f/2.8L lens.

on a tripod and exposed at f/9 for 8 seconds. This
image, and the
others I took during my vacation will always
have me longing to
return to 'The City'." --Nick Sadowski

Nice photo all around. I have experimented a bit with long nighttime
exposures, but I can never seem to get the streaks of light from the
automobiles quite right. I'd love to know your secret Nick...
