Movement in the Night

I took this while doing long exposure tests with my Olympus E-330 when I got it. I was quite pleased with the way this one turned out. I'd love to know what you all think!?

Interesting shot, nice colours! The scene seems a tad busy though... Cropping the flag and the orb of light on the left edge of the frame might help with that. The buildings in the background also attract too much attention IMO, owing to your wide DOF, the leading lines from the floor and the blur of the people in the foreground.
Okay, I am going to hijack this image to do something UNPRECIDENTED! I want to take over shutterchance.... yes that's right... sparklite and I, with the assistance of Matt, and maybe Paul and Suby and some other people if they are bored and feel like it, are going to RULE THE WORLD! *cough* okay, so maybe not.... Since we have managed to take the 'sparklite rule of three' to the extreme and got it listed in wikipedia now.... well there's not alot more to do with that one... SOOO... I am soliciting new ideas from EVERYONE who happens to read sparklite's postings (including sparklite himself), we need a new sparklite rule! come on now people, dig deep, cry rivers, feel moved, move feelings, move your dog (no, seriously, move your dog... he's standing on my toe!), Out there somewhere, hidden deep within the dark recesses of sparklites photographs are new untapped rules that must be exposed for the world to see! We must get to t he bottom of this great mystery that is sparklite.. what makes him tic, what makes him toc (it is also slightly disturbing that he goes tic-toc... but hey... what can ya do...), what makes him the MIGHTY SPARKLITE!... I expect no less than 10 answers by the time this images cycles out of here and into the oblivion that is the previous button (twilight zone music goes here....).

I found one ...Idleye's reference to the "tyranny of the thumbnail" makes me think there must be some sort of rule there to overcome this...come on V V...I know you can solve that. Sorry Sparklite...this is supposed to be about your picture..isn't it? I like it.
Iain Myrans: lol. no worries. Glad you like it smile
Ah but here we have yet another interpretation of the Sparklite Rule. While not readily evident in the image itself, if you look at the camera settings you will note that the exposure was 3 seconds giving yet another wxample of the pervasiveness of this insidiously holy number. AND furthermore, is it coincidence that Sparklite shoots with an Olympus E-330? I think not. I believe it to be part of a vast global conspiracy. Maybe the TRIlateral Commission?
Iain Myrans: OMG you guys are totally nuts! smile
Oh, BTW, I love the colors in this shot. Olympus rocks!!!!
Humm... Matt may be onto something here... The Trilateral Comission for the comissioning of all things Trilatteral... hummm.. yes yes... i see... I will have to do some more research into this one, but I think we may be onto something... Thanks Matt, you may have unlocked the first puzzle in the great mystery that is a Sparklite Photo.

maybe i should not point out the two sets of three black bollards at the end of the pathway?
