The Legislative Council building in Hong Kong is the backdrop; commuters are in the middle and the number 15 bus zipped past to provide the erm... swoosh!

Tim J Pile January 04, 2008

Thanks all... I'm very lucky to be showcased as the POTD.
Here's what you do: As soon as it gets dark, find a good location, select a long shutter speed, and take about 30 photos. Delete 29 of them, but I'll bet one of them will be a gem.
It worked for me!

Tim, Beautiful man. Just beautiful. Do you mind if I ask a question? I noticed that the whole scene is in focus. Did you use a high f/stop? #5348924

Tim J Pile January 16, 2008

I don't remember Matthew! It's a wide angle lens so that helps and I sharpened the scene a little in Photoshop. #5350625
