  • 131101 Las Vegas

Urban nights and moving escalators have been two of my favourite subjects for long exposures, and visiting Las Vegas let me combine the two.  Almost all of my photos were taken at night, experimenting with different positions and movement.

But while this photo is one of my favourites, it didn't immediately jump out at me as a prospect. The photo on the right is what the image looked like right out of the little Ricoh GR.

I edited it in Lightroom to bring out the colours and contrasts, tweaked the white balance to mix the different light sources, and cleaned up one little squiggle that I didn't like. I've also been trying out a new aspect ratio, which means cropping down slightly from the usual 3:2 ratio that comes straight out of the camera.
