About the Image(s)

A fairly recent image made December 7th about 5 minutes from home.
These are lights on the local bypass road.
I had looked at these several times before and it was time to do something with them.
Looking for, amongst other themes, minimalist images I tried a few versions of this.
The problem was to keep distracting elements from the frame as there are hedges between the path on which I was standing and the lights, houses in the distance and traffic.
That was completed by a slight crop in processing.

Sony A900 ISO200 Minolta 75-300mm zoom at 300mm 1/50 at f14 probably on a tripod.

No processing bar mono conversion in Silver Efex.

Hi John... my first impression was of musical had a rather flat sky which does not compete with the lights - the focus of your image. These five lights are very minimalist indeed and think you've achieved your goal on this one.   Posted: 05/03/2021 12:58:26
