Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 9th January, 2013)
That's an odd looking rainbow
Nice light trails going on there.
Wow.......good one Andrew,nicely done for the wow factor.....cheers!!!
I cant comment on the quality of the photo etc, perhaps it will be explained later what exactly is happening here. All i can say is that when i go in the Anvil it doesn,t look like that,but,when i come out,well,thats a different matter. Good shot Andrew but i,m not sure what it,s all about.
Great shot Andrew. Not something that I have attempted yet. Nicely done.
Not good use of elapsed time photography the car lights distact you away from the shot of the pub,for people who dont know what the anvil pub looks like
peterp, I would say that looks more like a bus than a car!
Read all about time-lapse using Google.
One website :-
Andrew, would you please explain how you took this photo? - wonder how long it took.
What a shame Andrew it looks like your shutter button got stuck and a bus drove past at the same time and left those streaks of lights on it.
I don't know much about the techniques of photography but I think its a good image...I like it, gives a sense of movement.
Harry I too would think it was a bus rather than a car.
Peterp, imho this is excellent use of timed photography and I would guess that the light trails - rather than the pub - were Andrew's focus of attention, and, it still provides an interesting view of Wigan.
Wasn't this called The All Saints pub in the 60s?
Don't understand the meaning of this photo???
i dont think it's a bus or a car . someone has been setting left over fireworks from newyears eve . come on people it is'nt rocket science.
Well done it's not easy to take a shot like that I'd say it was a bus.
Was the bus doing 100mph?? for me it spoils a good night time pic. Sorry Andrew, but you can over-do things.
Yes it was David.The All Saints Tavern if my memory serves me right.
what's the point.
Of course it wasn't a bus......
it was SUPERMAN !!!
Glad it has split opinions - there's nowt worse than boring photography!
Garry, this is clearly a 'work-of-art' and like any such work, one should take from it 'what you will', which may be nothing or maybe a lot, or something in between.
Nice bit of photography Andrew but I'd like to see a good shot of the Anvil too
Was it a #10 bus???
It's been said before but I'll say it again anyway " He won't sell many ice creams going at that speed"
Poor Andrew..he took the photo he wanted to take and I for one quite like it ....its different.
Off tonights subject I know .Watched tonights news and i`m sure i speak for all of us here to all the "ex pats" in Australia.Hope your weather settles soon and the awful fires come under control.
It won`t just be one bus, but several as it`s time-lapse.
This pub was DEFINITELY called `The
All Saint`s Tavern`.
Andrew: I would appreciate a reply to my 08:37 comment.
Well Andrew,you certainly got plenty of reactions...and like Jean,I like it.
..A little late, not unusual for me since retirement!....However, I among some others think it an amazing image, and would like to know more about it, and about the technique involved.
Thankyou Jean....we are fortunate in S.A. That we don't have any major fires......our news is heartbreak after heartbreak......
Thanks for asking - I took the shot by simply putting the camera on a tripod, waiting for the bus to come along and the then firing one frame for about 3 seconds. A small apeture of, f16 i think, and the darkness allowd the long shutter and the hence the light trails. So, it's a single shot, just a long exposure, and because the bus moved along the frame within the time you get the light trails. No fancy electronics or photoshoppery on this one!
Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.
This pic was taken by time delayed shutter speed,(used to be known as "bulb") as Andrew stated..
Nice shot Andrew ;o)
