Challenge: Time Lapse (Advanced Editing VI ("Time Lapse")*)
Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark III
Lens: Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Humber Bridge, UK
Date: Jan 6, 2008
Aperture: various
ISO: 100
Shutter: various
Date Uploaded: Jan 6, 2008

Humber Bridge, 2hrs pre dawn to just after dawn.
Stacked and striped to get a small section of each image.
Obviously the sequence goes from right to left.

OK so some commenters have asked for a 'how to' guide:

There are about 8 staked images here, each taken about 15mins apart from a static tripod. I arrived well before dawn and stayed until just after sun up, and shot every few minutes. I bracketed each image so ended up with about 200 images to choose from.

Having selected the 8 or so images I wanted to use I opened each image as a smart object in PS3. In effect I had 8 seperate images stacked one on top of the other.

The next stage was to turn off the view of all but the bottom two images and then to add a layer mask to the second image. Using a soft brush paint in black on the layer mask to reveal the lower image.

Next copy the layer mask up onto the third layer and broaden the masked area to reveal another slice of the lower two images.

Repeat for each layer

Once all layers have been masked down then its simply a case of using curves to smooth the colour transitions

great shot Keith, you should have let me known you was around, I'd have bought you a pint in County Pub at the bottom of the bridge- only live 5 mins away ;-)

You really were one of my two 10s. I just love the time fade concept and you executed it perfectly. Congrats on top 10!

What a beautiful and seamless transition during the course of the day. Very pretty!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I get the feeling this will do well since it doesn't hold hands with the viewer - it waxes trippy.

Very nicely done. I like the transition, and the colours on both the day side, and the night side.

Seamless! There will be revelations of technique (I hope).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2008 10:24:02 AM
Lovely deep tones. Well composed. Day turning to night (I figured it out in the end :-)). I was getting a little concerned that I could find the subject in 3-5 different positions and I'm so glad I couldn't, nice to see something unique.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful image! Love the colors here. I think that the title would go with the image better if you flip the photo horizontally.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the smooth transition to night. Many people tried this, but you made it work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 11:51:57 PM
Wow this is really beautiful! Excellent job on the coloring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 11:25:01 PM
Neat transition from day to night. Maybe the split could have been right down the middle to make it more obvious but still it's neat looking.

01/07/2008 11:11:11 PM
Nicely done!

This is an incredible picture but I don't believe it has anything to do with the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 05:30:27 PM
Subtle but effective.

01/07/2008 03:02:52 PM
Ah, an image similar to my approach. Very pretty and one of my very few 10s!

Beautiful photo but....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 01:46:40 PM
I like it, but may have moved the transition over to the center more, the dark side seem to be winning. :)

Great image. I like the blending on the frames. It looks so much better than hard lines. Well done. 7.

inventive - like how the lights turn on part way -- one of my ribbon picks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:45:31 AM
This is cool! The street lights on the bridge are really interesting, the way they go from off to on to brighter and brighter. Nice composition and color. good job combining the images.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:34:20 AM
Beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:34:14 AM
Hmmm, seems more like long exposure rather than multiple (time lapse) exposures. Maybe some confusion as to intent of the theme?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:32:14 AM
Very nice use of time lapse and beautifully blended.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:27:26 AM
Fantastic shot. I love the transition and colours, plus the lights on the bridge going on. Brill!

I can se how this meets the challenge, but I'm afraid I will be one of few

I'm not really seeing much "Time Lapse" here.
