Default What think ye?

Before you say anything about the blue....
When I opened the RAW file, I added +5 vibrance and +10 saturation. I then set the blue slider's saturation to -20 because it looked so ridiculously blue.
Anyways, the photo which wasn't actually edited as much as usual.

I wish the exposure had been for longer, I'd like to see the streaks going from one end to the other.

Aw, but that means I'd have to bring a tripod and set up and blah blah blah
Edit: Problem with that is I like the solidity of the, er, 'trains', and having an exposure much longer than a second or two would make them very transparent indeed.

I like it alot. The other thing I would have done differently is lengthened the exposure for a bit. I think it's worth a shot at upload, it's a very interesting photo.

Funny how these things work.
Today I was on that same overpass, shooting the other way down the line to where a wreck occurred.
Keep watching for my photos, if they make it on!

Default Tungsten?

Hi

Did you have your camrea white balance set to tungsten?

That partly would account for the vivid blue in the sky.

Camera white balance is for mortals, I shoot RAW.

Ok,

So what was the colour temperature indicated in your raw conversion?

By the way, raw is a word, not an abbreviation RAW

the first thing i see is the median between the two tracks, thats really all I see. Maybe throw a 70-200 on your camera and work the repetition of the poles and the signals down the line? the compression will make the lights really pop.

I'm sorry, but that is just a great quote!

Anyway...

Matt, I do indeed like the shot... but I am not sure about the cropping...attached is what I would do.

Again...nice shot; great idea!

I think I see what he is stating. If you zoom in past the first set of light poles to give you like a tunnel effect.
