Dog's Might Fly

By Fefe
I hope you are not getting bored with these Tongue
On our second visit here I took loads more than the first time, I was sat on that sooty concrete platform for quite a while trying different settings. Was I sooty when I stood up TongueTongueTongue
Its funny because it is really quite dark in there and a long exposure without a ND filter its quite hard to choose the settings to get a fast enough shutter speed to capture movement from passers by. Too slow and they disappear completely.
Its a bit like patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time Wink

The title came from the French bulldog heading this way...looks like he has wings GrinGrin

Last time I had one of these as an upload 'The Salsa' Janet 'Chase' quite rightly pointed out to crop away the bright light at the top.
On this occasion I have left it, I did try cropping but that cropped away all the brick work that is illuminated by the light in this shot. So the light stayed this time. This time I have cropped from the bottom. Tweaked, not faffed .
I hope you like it Grin

So pleased you liked my feathery image yesterday! Thank you Smile

The curve in the tunnel the lights and the activity make this an irresistable photo site, and you have made the most of it Diane!

It is so interesting to do these sort of things. You never know what you've got really until your computer shows you. Sometimes you're shocked in good ways and sometimes bad ways. I really quite like this Diane.

Wonderful composition in this long exposure, I like this a lot.
An excellent 'non-faffed' image Diane.

I'm assuming you weren't wearing white jeans whilst sat on that mucky platform😆😆😆😆!!!!
Another really well-tweaked shot and the brickwork looks so good. A job very well done, Diane.

Well, I'm certainly not bored.
Wonderful streaks of light Diane and this time, you were right not to remove that front light, the composition would have been so spoiled if you had.

Love the ghostly figures....looks Great in black and white also.
Great composition. Diane. The hint of walking and moment is terrirric.

Well, you can 'bore' me with a few more of these, Diane! 😁 Another super capture, love the very low viewpoint - if I got that low, I'd never get back up again! Just the right shutter speed used, and think you're right to leave in the light at the top, cropping it off would lose a lot of the beautifully lit brickwork 😃👍
