Urban landscapes: follow the light trails

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, CALGARY, ALBERTA

I was killing time in a nearby park, waiting (in vain, as it turned out) for the lights to come on and illuminate two beautiful water fountains, when I spotted this nicely lit church. So I wandered over to see if a picture was possible and, as you can see, the answer was yes.
I went for as low a perspective as possible in order to push the long-exposure vehicle lights higher into the scene. As for going monotone, I like the blues and reds in the colour version, but I knew this treatment would also be a winner. Was I right?
