Tonight something different.. this is the result of a golden-blue hour late evening walk in Zurich Hardbrücke along its railway viaduct (Viadukt), an area which has experienced a strong and successful reconversion from the remaining of a glorious heavy machinery industry into advanced services (banks, insurances and lawyers) and center of Zurich’s Nightlife with its numerous and extravagant bars, clubs and concert halls, and everything flavoured with a strong hipster vibe.
Back to the photo: it was shot with a 50mm lens on full frame body, and obtained by stacking three images in vertical direction (in other words a vertical pano). I waited for a train (upper shot) and a tram (lower shot) to draw light trails to add extra dynamic.
If you photo-walk and something strikes you in terms of geometries and perspective, then the capture exercise is super easy: the focal length of our eyes is close to a 50mm lens on full frame (or 35mm on APS-C sensor or equivalent). The only thing, which doesn’t match is the field of view; the combined actions of our eyes gives us a sort of zoomed panoramic vision; this is the reason why I love to stack multiple pictures in other to extend the limited field of view of my lens. It gives a sort of Medium Format flare to the image. The final picture is color corrected to match the nice chromatic contrast I was experiencing (between the yellows of the street lamps and the blueish sky), indeed my camera (and most probably also your one) is stupidly color blind; either it matches the blues or the yellows, but both together forget it! Thanks Photoshop!
