Sometimes, your photos just don't come out right!

A while ago, I wanted to shoot this scene with the wheel spinning with just a FEW cars streaking by, but what I got instead was the wheel, background and sky the way I wanted, with a BLOWN OUT headlight streak below because there was just too many cars going by...D'oh!!!

I would have kept shooting that night, but it was COLD, and I was tired.

I tried....hope y'all like it ;-)

    Thanks you guys. I DO tend to be a little over-critical of my work, but I cannot help it...D'oh!!
    I do like MOST of it, but I wasn't too sure about the concentration of light.
    If the weather permits, I may just go a re-shoot it tonight.
    Thank you again!

    Really, thank you all so much!!! I really do appreciate the support.
    I guess I am too critical of my work, but when you are considered a "Pro" by some, you HAVE TO be able to produce an image that is accepted by almost all, which is VERY hard to do.
    I will try to lighten up on myself, and pay attention to your kind supportive words ;-)
    Thank you all!!
