Under the Spotlight

With a little motion blur…

And then, right across the street, a couple under the spotlight — also with a little motion blur.

  1. Both photos are great. But I like most the first one. :) Maybe it’s the red tones. :)

    • Thanks, Helder. Why do you like the red tones? Is red your favorite color?

      May 20, 2011 at 21:41

      • Red and black are my favorite colors. I think they match well together. :)

        • Agreed… that would be my second favorite color combination (after blue-yellow).

          Actually, remember previous post (Zuishin-mon)? The gate is dominantly in red. If only there were no flares, I would certainly post the color version, and you might like it better :D…

          Oh well…

          • I will wait then for the color version. :) And I don’t mind with the flares. :P

            • Done!
              The color version is posted in the original post :-)…

      Shooting at night is a new adventure:-).

  4. I can’t decide which one I prefer – I’d probably go with the second, just on the cusp of darkness!

    • Don’t have to choose; It would be my pleasure if you like them both :D…

      Thanks for the comment, Marco :-)

  5. love them both, each depicts emotion, certainly not the kind of passing glance images. The thing is, i like them both for the sense of loneliness, please don’t ask me to explain that…

    • I won’t ask, but I conclude you like lonely pictures. :D…

      Thanks for the comment, Tumpal.

    aih cakepnya,, momennya pas,, nunggu berapa lama deket lampu itu??

    May 23, 2011 at 09:49

    • Berapa lama ya? Gak sampai 10 menit kok, mungkin hanya 5 menit. Yang lama itu mencari exposure yang pas. Skill masih jelek, jadi perlu beberapa kali test shot. Totalnya sih mungkin ngambil 10 foto; 2 yang diunggah di sini adalah yang paling oke menurutku.

Thougths, anyone?
