taken at an intersection near my house. I know it looks like the contrast was altered, but I assure you it wasn't. I don't really like the way it looks, but it's hard for me to not post this one.

how do you keep the lights from washing out the lightning

It depends, but it's always one of the 3 primary adjustments. Iso, aperture, or shutter speed.

for example, the above photo was 8 sec, f5.6, and iso 100. So the combination of fairly short exposure and low chip sensitivity did the trick.

i actually love the contrast, it makes the street pop, but still the focus remains on the lighting.

beautiful photo.
