This week's challenge is multi reflections with people, selected by Imac. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
But where are my people, you ask? ...They're in all those buildings, Silly! This was taken at ten minutes before five PM, and there was barely a soul outside. This is downtown Saint Louis, Missouri. The shot was taken from my hotel window with a tripod. I used the tiniest aperture possible and covered the lens with a neutral density filter. This was a fifteen second exposure, so any moving vehicles disappeared-- they were averaged out! The colors came out a bit funky, but I restored them back in post processing. The super-small aperture gives us much more depth of field than I am accustomed to shooting.
I like the idea for this theme, and I wish I had the time to set up some other shots, but between traveling and studying for a presentation, I had to be careful about my priorities. I hope some of my friends used the other reflection ideas that bounced around in my head!
