ISO: 100
Shutter: 30 seconds
Galleries: Panoramic, Street
Date Uploaded: Mar 15, 2010

Shot with aperture priority. The longest exposure my camera wants to do is 30 seconds, so I adjusted the aperture until I hit 30 seconds. Used a tripod and tried making the main focal points the building and the intersection.

I did a shot like this in the morning and the sky was interesting. The sky here was not, so I cropped to remove all but a bit of the sky.

I like how peaceful this photo looks at first glance, then you notice all the traffic streaks. gives that feeling of people not stopping to smell the roses. it's a great reflective shot.
