Another car rushing, this time into a parking garage. I taking shots of the parking lights, playing with the zoom while taking the shots, when this car entered the parking. Without hesitation I took as many photos as I could (three) while still moving the zoom in and out during the shot. As the previous photos, this was shot handheld at low shutter speed (1/3 sec).
This morning I prepared myself to a raining evening, as announced in TV, I even made my mind to the type of picture I would take. But it didn’t rain. Instead I found my self in the corner of York Ave and 75th St shooting at cars rushing thru the night. I could have stayed there all night, but people started to stare at me and it was getting cold. After processing the pictures, this is my favorite.
Almost everybody knows the rule of thirds, and some go even further and employ it, but there are other ways for creating a good composition. One that I particularly like is the use of repetition in some elements. A rather uninteresting scene can be converted into a nice photograph by the use of repetition. This is the case, by my taste anyway, of this photograph. By the way you can find parking garages like this all over Manhattan, always with lots of announcements and signal and always full.
