Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Traffic Blur

Still work in progress, may go back tonight and try the image from further right, or maybe left and use the lamp pole to frame the right. Trial & error =)

Still impressed with the image quality of the 400D.

Re: Traffic Blur

Image shot in Av (Apature Priority) Mode.
F-stop: f/14
Exposure: 10secs
ISO: 200
Exposure bias: +2

Really was a case of playing around until found a setting right for the amount of light, type or light and speed of traffic. Some images came out too dark with the right amount of blur, other too light with glare from the street lights and tons of noise in the sky.
The original image was very orange, once edited had to give a go over with NeatImage to clean up the noise.

Re: Traffic Blur

Yes I like that, although it would be better if the nearest light post was not there. Nice crisp shot well done. I spose it could be any motorway but out of interest where was it? Seems quite busy too
cheers
Ash.

Re: Traffic Blur

Hi
Thankyou ash!
Its a quiet little bridge over the M25 London Orbital, just next to J16 (M40) looking South. I liked the spot as it was quiet with no car/vans racing past me which helped get a nice steady shot, although you'd be supprised how much movement there is when a lorry passes under the bridge at speed

I did try the shot again last night, more to the left with the closest post just out of sight. As soon as I pulled up I could see traffic building in the distance, and by the time I was out the car and had the camera steady on the railing (5' high, bit higher then my tripod reaches) it slowed down by me and just didnt give the 'rush' effect even though it was moving a little.

I have to say I'm quite pleased with the results (400D ) and cant wait to try it again, but am busy tonight =(

Re: Traffic Blur

A good representation of a common subject, you have done the subject justice, I do admire your dedication and patience, very very nice, and I cannot fault the image, I like it as it is.
