Something different from me. The last weeks I was exclusively shooting tele. Usually I nearly always present wide angle shots here and I found that in my portfolio there are only a few tele shots - although I always carry around a big lense ;-)
Time to change this. The last weeks I always had the tele on my camera and started looking for other compositions than usual. What would work with a long lense?
The above photo is the result of an evening in Bamberg. 3 Month ago I had already seen this photo in my minds eye as I walked past this gate. It was still midday then but I already saw the potential and thought about a night shot with the masses of people turned into ghostly shapes by the long exposure.
2 weeks ago I brought my camera and setup the shot. There were masses of people and I had to take a couple of long exposures till the movement of the shadows fit into the frame. I positioned the camera so I got a nice diagonal with the cobble stones in the foreground. The lamp above was nicely illuminating the scene. BW was the logical choice here to accentuate the gloomy atmosphere.
