Taken either just before midnight on the 22nd of May 2010, or just after midnight on the 23rd…the trouble with film is that there is no EXIF data to check!
This was a tripod shot taken with a Rolleicord V TLR camera dating from around 1955 and fitted with the Schneider-Kreutznach Xenar 80/3.5 lens, shot near the Hobart waterfront at Salamanca Place.
The tripod was set up in the middle of a pedestrian crossing traffic island, which got me some funny looks but came through with the shot!
The exposure details are not recorded, but from memory it was around f/8 or f/11, and the shutter was tripped in bulb mode with a cable release and the exposure timed by eye to get the light trails right.
The film used was Fuji Pro 400H colour negative, processed by Photoforce in Hobart.
Scanned on an Epson V700 and the levels adjusted and dust spots removed in GIMP, photograph has been cropped to improve composition (the square format didn’t really work on this one!).
This is only a small scan on a fairly low resolution, however I do have a much higher res scan of this shot (over 130MB of it!) which I will replace this version with when I apply the same treatment to it.
