Still Movement


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 0.625 sec, f/3.5, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

Finally a decent shot to post. I was feeling that I hadn't been posting shots of much worth recently, so I was pleased at getting this shot tonight. Used my new ML-L3 remote control, which helped me a lot (didn't have to keep using the self timer).

Tonight was the first time in about a week that the skies have been relatively clear, so it wasn't too dark by the time I left work. It's probably the longest time I've gone without using my camera in quite a while - a good 5 days at least! :)

I was really impressed with the colours of this shot, and how the D70 handled the noice. Still loving it.

This is fantastic - the colours are great, but it's the two buses going oppostie directions around the static traffic that make it so great. And a new toy to play with, eh? You lawyers and your high paid jobs, I don't know! ;)

Brilliant shot John! You captured so much in this - love the movement and colour along with the grand old building in the background. It makes for a really interesting juxtaposition of the fast moving modern technology against the almost timeless structure. The motion trails from the buses remind me of a sci-fi movie with a warp speed scene...

Good to see you've been making good use of your D70. I just realised I've had mine for almost 18 months now and I've used it every day. I've never tried a remote for it but there are times when one would be really handy.

It's truely amazing! I love the colours, the saturation, the motion and the stillness of the two subjects in the middle. Nice capture!

Excellent shot. I love the lighting and blurring.

I'm curious how you set up your blogger page. Is that a custom template? It looks great!

John, this is jaw-droppingly good. And annoyingly, its a type of shot I'd been thinking about for a while - although I know I'd never have gotten such a sharp, contrasty and well-composed image...

Perhaps I'll give it a try when I'm finished doing my Glasgow "A park a day" tour. :-)

Once again, Brilliant!

Owen: Thanks Owen. Yeah, I'm getting paid just enough to buy my £12 toys off ebay!

stephen: Thanks for the comments, much appreciated. I'd definitely recommend the remote, especially if you use your tripod a lot.

jcyrhs: Thanks, glad you liked it!

Matt: Yeah, just customized the simple black template... nothing too fancy.

Alan: Thanks Alan. Night photography is something that I've always wanted to try properly, and so it's great being so close to the city centre now. I was glad that it came out so sharp - had to balance a mini tripod on a railing - not the best set up!
