Tried some more of these shots around Manchester.
I chose this location as I thought it would be good because of the different roads and directions of traffic, but it ended up being a nit of a disappointment because there is hardly any sign of change. The blue sky didn't change much at all and I hardly got any vehicles or other signs of movement. This was probably due to the timing, it was around midday and the roads were quite quiet. I think another reason this one hasn't worked out that well is that lots of photographic subject is further away than in the shots where they have worked better.
I think this one is particularly effective because you can see all the sections of busses that have been split up by the columns of time. You also get the sunlight slowly creeping up as the shade consumes the park on the right and then climbs up to cover the tree and the buildings in the background. I also like how the tree branches fill the space in the sky that would be empty and plain otherwise, they also play a strong part in linking the columns together to form a coherent image when some of the crossovers don't match up. You need a mixture of both of these elements to make this idea into a successful image.
After trying for a while to get a descent shot with traffic and failing because of the distance, I got one that was close to the action and chose this location because of the busy crossroads and church in the background. Although there is not as much action as I hoped for it is a lot better than the other ones I have of roads and traffic. The shadows changing in the bottom left hand corner also show the slow shift in time which I like.
