    I took this picture, and I like the idea, but I'm not sure if it came out too blurry or what.[wondering if I should go back and retake]

    Slow exposure time..at least that is how you do it with a manual camera and moving objects.
    You really need to use a tripod or something to do it though.

    What I used was slow-synch flash.I didn't have a tripod, so I just held it as still as I could.

    I don't know if this info would help at all,but I figured I would list it.
    Focal Length 5.8 mm
    Exposure Time 0.50 sec
    Aperture f/4.8

    Thanks for compliments.
    I didn't intend for the affects,lol, tried to hold it as still as possible.Kinda like it better though.

    Thanks

    What happens in order to get this effect, is that the stobe is in effect your shutter for near objects, that is objects like the stop sign. The distance objects will be blurry due to the slow shutter speed on the camera. If you didn't move the camera at all, the background lights would not blur.

    As for your lens focal length, I think you meant 58mm.

    Cheers
