Light at night
Just entered the pic above in the Geographical Magazine`s photographer of the year competition under the idea of light pollution. Light pollution is a big problem in Tokyo, in the centre it never really gets dark and I haven`t seen stars for months. This image is not digitally manipulated (aside from some straightening) and believe it or not was hand held at 3 seconds.
But those days of balancing the camera on railings and bags because of not enough light are gone as I am now digital and lowlight photography (I think) just got easier. I would say I have a swanky new Canon EOS 20D but it is a well-travelled camera and looks a little lived-in. But a bargain none the less and I`m looking forward to going out and playing with it tomorrow.
