A Stony Stratford Christmas

I tired this shot (although looking the other way) last year with the 40-150R and used a tripod and a long exposure. This year I tried it hand held with the 300f4. It was much easier running in and out of the traffic sans tripod!

Very discreet and tasteful deccies.

I am impressed by the way you have exposed it short enough to keep the colours in the lights but long enough to still have some shadow detail. Did you use the EVF and guess? Or bracket?

I drove down that High Street yesterday after visiting my parents...very tasteful decs this year - nice way to end the year after the awful fire earlier on in the year.

Great shot and well exposed.

Yes a guess and good latitude in the RAW files on the EM1!

Re: A Stony Stratford Christmas

I love the festive lights and the way drivers decorate their cars for Christmas.

Re: A Stony Stratford Christmas

Do they drain the battery, and more importantly, are they legal?

Very effective shot. I had no idea Stony Stratford could look so nice!

Thanks Paul, it was not that easy to get the drivers to all put their lights on at the same time.

Back on topic I have to say that your night shot is very impressive, Andrew. The EM1 did it proud, mate.

Re: A Stony Stratford Christmas

Maybe I'm being a bit thick and am missing the irony here but surely those lights on the cars are just reflections of those above?
Smart shot by the way.
