Challenge: Tilted Horizon (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200

Date Uploaded: Feb 15, 2009

I figured a shot from a moving bicycle would give a tilted horizon without even trying. Managed to strap my D200 around my chest so it did swing about and then after some experiment found that 1/15 to 1/25 s shutter speeds gave nice motion blur. Used a polarizing filter - mostly as a neutral density filter to reduce the light for the long exposure.
1) raw

Great feeling of movement. The first pic I've seen where the tilt it inherent to the subject.

Must have been hard to hold the camera and keep peddling at the same time! This is a really different and cool perspective to have taken this shot from.

I really like the curving line, but the image doesn't let my eye settle anywhere.

Interesting shot. Would've been cool if the hand/s and bike were in full focus.
