    Great shot, especially after reading your description….I’m impressed by the slow shutter speed, handheld! Amazing!!!

  • Thanks, Chris! Especially when I first got this camera, it surprised me at how well it performed at slow shutter speeds.

    Excellent composition, such great dof at this angle and amazing night shot! Love the almost sepia coloring from the lights! Rich and warm!

  • Thank you, Joanne. I could have “corrected” the white balance to make the light whiter, but I liked the color as is for the warmth.

    Wow, this is absolutely outstanding photography Celeste, just soooo beautiful. Fabulous lighting and love the colour. I know how good the Olympus cameras are.

  • Thanks very much, Ralph! I made this one during a local 24-hour photo contest (a “day in the life” kind of theme), and such contests always push me to stretch a bit and try new things.

    Serene evening on the rails, Celeste… Glowing lights make me think of years gone by when there was peace in our cities and towns… Lovely…

  • Thank you very much, Susan! It was indeed quiet that evening, but this area is often anything but, thanks to proximity to restaurants, a few hotels, and the Long Beach Performing Arts Center.
