Zoooom! by berndt2

Fair enough I’m hardly the first person to have taken this shot (and additionally I wasn’t the only person taking a shot like this at the time I was taking it!).

However, I like to think I was taking more care with the composition : I had the camera on the pavement for a lower vantagepoint! The luck with the red lighttrails stopping where they did was just luck, though.

(After that, I had dinner)

8sec exposure, ISO100, f16, 10mm Pentax K-5

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).

    The low vantage point works good in this image and renders additional dynamic. Good Format too!

    I love that you’ve included the road markings, without them I think it would have be an ‘also ran’ shot, but they add that bit of punch that set the picture apart, congrats
