This is a long exposure taken from an overpass over HWY 280. It took a bit of planning and timing to get it just right, a tripod, remote shutter release and the time of evening to balance everything out between the dark skies and bright traffic lights.

Nice shot. Haven't tried the slow exposure option with moving cars on the iPhone yet but I've gotten pretty good shots with river rapids for that soft smokey look.

Thanks! This was probably an 6 to 8 second exposure so a tripod is necessary for that long. I've never tried on the iPhone with a shot like this but I imagine it can be done under the right conditions.
