Lens: Tokina AT-X 124 Pro 12-24mm f/4

1 second @ F5.6


Shanghai peak hour traffic on a Friday evening. This freeway intersection has five separate levels merging together. This shot was composited from 21 separate images I shot for a time lapse sequence which is part of a DVD I will be releasing next year. I placed each individual image on a separate layer and used the lighten mode to add the layers into one final composited shot.


This image could sure use some lens distorion correction too as it was a 12mm wide angle shot and the buildings show severe barrel distortion.


These frames were never intended to be used as a still photo image even though I took them as NEF files at maximum D50 resolution. If I was to take this photo again I would probably opt for a longer exposure time - say 8 or 10 seconds @ f11 but by stacking the multiple images I was able to get a similar result.
