This shot was taken at an Motorway Exit in Graz. The Exit leads to an Shopping Mall, where they mounted the “Clocktowers Shadow”. This is a replica of the Landmark of Graz, it´s Clocktower, to attract visitors.

When i drove by, i noticed that they had installed this nice Led Lighting around the Replica Tower. So i mounted my Camera on a nearby pedestrian overpass on a tripod and took the shot. I added the motorway with the passing cars to round up the image.

Equipment:
Canon Eos 50d, Manfrotto Tripod, Canon Remote Control, Mirror Lockup
Kit Lens 17-85 mm at 24 mm (under 24 this lens works very poor).

Exposure and Aperture:
f/ 14.0 15 sec. -1EV iso 100

Remarks:
The Photo was taken in Raw and using the Liveview function with AV. I preseted the Aperture to f/ 14.0, aimed at the tower left and corrected the sharpness manually, the camera set the correct exposure.

Postproduction:
The photo is out of the cam, only that i corrected the clarity in CS4 to reduce the halos an added some sharpness to get crispy details.

I am a Hobby Photographer from Austria who likes to shoot a mixed bag of subjects ranging from car racing to airshows, architecture, landscape and nature and have not specialized on a specific topic.
I also like to look at all the beautiful artwork here to find some inspiration.
Thank’s to all of you for looking and commenting on my work.
