La Rue Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
La Rue
La Rue
f16 @ 1/5 shutter, iso 100, neutral density filter, tripod mounted. Shot at 9AM. Converted color to lab B / W in PS CS. Burned some bright areas in background. The blurred "ghost" effect is exactly what my goal was with the slow shutter speed, though it took almost 50 shots at various shutter speeds to get the effect just as I wanted it.

    The 50 shots were worth this one! I was wondering where the title came from just as my eyes hit the lower left corner of this image!
B&W was the only way to go with this shot Steve!
The whole composition tells the unique story!
