peeks at the world through my lens

Experimenting with Light and Motion

f/8 ISO100 13s 10-24mm@18mm.

I have been playing around recently with motion and lights, and what better time to experiment with lights than during the holiday season? This image was taken on Bahnhoffstrasse in Zurich. It is an HDR blend of two different images, each of which captured one of the trams. I merged the two and created the HDR with Photomatix. Slight color changes were made with Aperture.

  4. Interesting effect – I like it. The lines of colors give dynamism to the composition … just too bad that they all don’t converge to a fixed element in the center of the image (this would have been great 😉 )
