Zoom during exposure, desat all but yellow car.

I had my camera at work and decided to take a half an hour to take pictures of the Muttart Conservatory, a group of pyramidal greenhouses in the river valley near work. This bridge, as the crow flies, leads to the conservatory. I took several images both steady, with deliberate camera movement and zoom during exposure.

The lines of the bridge and its structure provide a texture which I find interesting.

In the colour version the bridge is almost BW in tone which is what gave me the idea for the desaturation. The green of the trees in the upper left was not really distracting however did not add anything to the image. The yellow vehicle in the bottom left is what stands out the most for me in both the colour and this version.

This is so totally fantastic and inspired. Looks completely like a pencil drawing but a lot better. Awesome.

Very abstract feel to this...did you zoom out while taking it?

I love what you have done here! I really like it when I see something different from the norm. Very creative and unique.
