Default NYC Ghost Town

I wake up this morning and I found the city is totally empty, no people or cars and it looks like a Hollywood nightmare movie.

What is going on here?















Relax... it is only a ND filter and 20-60 seconds long exposures what makes moving subjects to be ignored for the sensor.

I used my E5 + 11-22mm and a 10x ND filter.

The camera just capture the static subjects like building or parked cars, some people that is standing for more than 10-15 seconds will be recorder for the sensor.

Take a look a this scene with and with out the filter:







Have a great day everyone.

Marcelo

Nice pictures Marcelo and thanks you for the guide en explication of the ND filter.
It did me make to do some search and reading on it.
Was something I didn't know and was good to learn about!

Thank you for sharing and educating!

Very interesting and good shots. I really like the sky color in the first 4 shots.

Thanks, Marcelo - really interesting for me also. I would have thought you'd lose sharpness in the areas where people were walking by, but it doesn't appear that you do.

Cool! Believe it or not, the Fujifilm HS-10 has a feature that does this without the ND filter. I never tried it when I owned that camera but saw some results with other folks that did and it was pretty amazing.

Thank you for your comments, there are different grades of ND filter depending the effect you want to achieve.
