tempest of inspiration

Shot with Canon EOS 400D + Canon 50mm f/1.8

 

Oh it was a big fun to shoot this.

First of all I had big problems with focussing. It was almost completely dark(you cannot see that here because I took this with an exposure time of 25sec).

I had to guess the focus and I was really proud that it worked out that well.

The second funny thing was viewing the car drivers which came around and who obviously couldnt believe what I did there:

Just standing motionless with the arms stretched out wide is certainly not what you excpect at 9PM in the village.

Postprocessing was the third big fun. I had to stamp away a big road sign which annoyed my eye. This was almost the only thing that I done in postprocessing here and it took about 2 hours.

But at the end...everything came together well IMO.
