Nice and clean. Clean shot I mean, well and station. No essos up here. Something pleasant about night station shot. Anyone know why?

I love night shots of gas stations! For me, it's a nostalgic thing-- yes the stations are quite different from my childhood memories (70s) but the feeling is the same; something about the lights/neon...great shot! What were your settings? Use a tripod?

Very clean. I like it and it invokes a nostalgic feel for me as well.

No tripod wound the window down on my car and took the picture

Very nice. See Hemingway's "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" for the existential dimension.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

One of my favorites... The opening paragraph is great descriptive narrative.

Don't ask me why, but I like it. Maybe it's that 'clean' thing everybody else mentioned, but I like it.

Good exposure. Some of the best "night shots" I've seen were taken before it's totally dark while there's still some light left in the sky. You don't need much, but you need some.

One thing I have noticed the picture is not as crisp as the original when I post it on Photo bucket then link it here, any suggestions?
