Crossing the Charles Bridge

Maybe I should have titled this post Cinderella’s Castle but this isn’t Disneyland. Crossing the Charles Bridge during the day is like fighting your way through the crowds in Best Buy on Boxing Day. I thought a nighttime stroll might be quieter and it was but not by much.

This was a long exposure and you can see the ghosting of the people walking though. I decided to leave them in as it gave the sense of motion. I really didn’t do much to this image except for applying a little clarity and vibrance in LR.

  10. Beautiful – and perfect composition; the never ending stream of people are frustrating but you’ve used them well to your advantage 🙂
