Pretty in Pink
Nikon D70 @ 70mm, 1/15 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200
I managed to escape from work at 8 o'clock tonight. Not the best, but it was a glorious night so it felt like it was still the afternoon. I dashed home and straight back out again with my gear. I planned on getting a nice shot of the castle with the moon in the background, but it didn't quite work out.
Instead I saw the opportunity of getting a shot of some of the lovely trees mid-bloom on Princes Street, and the bike here seemed to finish it off. I did take a load of shots with people walking past, but they were more distracting than not. I think keeping this shot simple works best.
It's not quite as dark, contrasty and depressing as I'd like... but it is pretty, isn't it? :)
P.S. I thought I'd treat you to a bigger version of the picture... the resizing wasn't very favourable to the image.
