    Good shot.. I would have preferred it without traffic but this is most likely beyond your control...

    Actually, I think that the traffic contributes to the perspective. I pull a trailer, so I tend to hold my breath a little when I am going down a steep hill.
    I definitely don't have the ego of a great driver.

    Good point... I never really thought of the traffic contributing to the perspective... but I think perspective wise the picture is strong enough to carry the message without it...

    Agreed; the traffic isn't necessary for perspective, but it doesn't detract anything either.
