Finally bought a tripod this weekend and tried some long exposure photos around Dover.  This is my favorite (Bay Road near DelDOT):

I took a trip down Corridor H (US-48) in West Virginia from Wardensville to Blackwater Falls yesterday, and got this photo from the scenic overlook near East Moorefield:



Also this photo of the Cumberland Thruway (I-68) in Maryland at dusk last night:

One of my all-time favorite road pictures, taken southbound on UT 167:

Another one I took yesterday. I especially like it because it's sort of a "typical Utah" photo: a CFI in the middle of suburban hell with big mountains in the background.

I-10 in Phoenix near Sky Harbor - perfect shot with the aircraft about to land:



I just wish the polarizer didn't cause so much vignetting in one corner...

Usually the vignetting happens when the darker shades of blue are present depending on which way you turned the polarizer filter. If you turn it one way, it would deepen the greens and blues and tack off some of the annoying glare, which works well on reflective surfaces, so, the vignetting is essentially noticeable because of the angle of your polarizer and where you were aiming to shoot the picture. In some cases the vignetting looks cool, but, I guess in your case, you weren't expecting the vignetting to occur. You'd just have to turn the filter the other direction to lighten up the corner before you shoot again. In post-photo, I'd look for some filters to brighten up that corner that was caused by the filter being turned. Which, evidently, you deepened the green and the shadows of the light brackets and removed the glare.

The latest lens and polarizer I bought tends to cause a vignette more than any other set I've ever had - I suspect the screw mount polarizer is a bit closer to the lens surface than the others.
