This abstract black and white long exposure was taken on the first Google Plus European Photo Walk in Berlin. The theme of the weekend was architectural long exposure photography, using neutral density filters. This is a style of photography that I hadn’t tried before at the time, so this is one of my earliest experiments. The metal frame is an ornamental structure in the garden of an apartment block in Berlin and I was attracted by the way the light from the afternoon sun was catching the metal and making it shine. The broken clouds gave me some good movement during the one minute exposure.
Black and white conversion was made using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, with separate conversions for the metal frame and the sky.
