I was in the subway station to get motion shots of the subway arriving and leaving. This was actually just a test shot to check my composition, but it really turned out to be an interesting photo with the girl in focus and the others around her in a blur!

    I like this a lot. You just go into a subway station and plop down a tripod?
  • Steve Webel 8y

    @josh - yes, thats basically what I did. HK is a very photographer friendly city. So long as you use your common sense and don't endanger anyone, they pretty much let you have freedom to photograph anything. I love it.

    Also, it was late - alittle after 10pm - when I took this photo.

    Its sometimes possible to get 1/6 sharp hand held if you have something to lean against. Im impressed you had your tripod out with all those people walking around you.
