Evening Commute

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 19 November 2010 in Cityscape & Urban.

Taken with my trusty point-and-shoot Panasonic, which I think takes wonderful night shots (and is a lot easier to carry around than the Nikon!).

This is a little different for me, and I want to credit all of you for helping me continue to explore different styles and subjects.

Panasonic DMC-FX30 1/2 second F/2.8 ISO 100 28 mm (35mm equiv.)

Ah...magnificent! Great lines and depth.

This makes for a superb image . . . the contrast between the speed of passing and the patience of waiting is drawn out so well. An excellent study.

A great sense of speed and motion in this calm shot! Well done GJC! ;-)

Sounds like a wonderful image. I also use a small Pansonic DMC LX3 when I do night shots. I like the pictures though it is sometimes very yellow ambient light! I think it is very important the different types of artificial light! Best regards, Adela

Wow, this is great! I love the composition with the lady and her bike. Then we have those gorgeous reflections on the speeding train. Couldn't be better.

This would open an interesting series on silhouettes in the night....No joke,we have a point and shoot Nikon Coolpix that my husband carries along on our walks. He has, of late, discovered that one can make Liittle Movies with it.....see if yours has this function....
