Making the image happen (1). This yellow car has been standing on a street close to my home for the whole winter. This time I wanted to have a photo which would contrast the rusty, almost abandoned car to the lively traffic around it. I chose a slow shutter speed to create the motion of traffic and then had to wait for a suitable vehicle to pass by. It had to be large (small cars left too much irrelevant background to be visible) and dark. Yes and after some time I got the bus which, I believe, did the job here.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
