Default Long exposure-Needle in the eye

About a 20 second long exposer. Trying to balance it all out. Did not get it quite right but close. Had a slap my self on my forehead thing on the way home on how I could have taken the photo better, maybe next time. Going on a business trip to Hawaii on Thursday for a little over a week so I will not have time to work on this so here it is.

Very nice. Makes me think 'Angels and Demons in Seattle'. If you dig the ground where this was taken would you find another clue?

Great shot! Love the use of foreground framing.

Great shot, Daz! The dynamic range is a bit overdone but that's not a significant problem. What is the framing structure? It looks like a sculpture of some kind. Also, where is it located?

Thank calr and everyone.

The sculpture is called Changing Form. It is in a park in Seattle called Kerry. It is somewhat well know to the locals as the best place to see the Space Needle and the Seattle skyline. If you click on the flickr link in my signature it will take you to the photos I took that day. The photos are mapped on flickr so if you use the map option for a photo you can see where I was when I took it.

Every now and then I have to try the hard ones because it makes the others much easier. Every time I do some thing like this I learn a little more. I already have some ideas on how to do it better next time. Maybe some day I will go back and try to do it better.

But enough fun. I have to go back to packing for my trip tomorrow.

I clicked on the map option in Flickr and all I got was a blank map screen.

Strange. When I click the map below the thumbnail I get a map but it is zoomed way out and you can’t zoom in. I am going to have to send a note to flickr about that. If I click on the thumbnail I get more option (like make the photo bigger) but down on the right side it a “Taken in” list and it has a map there. That one seems to be working correctly. Sorry for the problem.
