Camera: Nikon D80 (Amazon)
Focal Length: 20mm
Shutter Speed: 25 sec
Note: Tommy McDermott captured this photo on the Boyne Cable Bridge in Ireland. The bridge has one elevated side higher than the other, so engineers decided to put in a cable-swayed bridge over a standard bridge. The long cables leads your eye to the top of the glowing bridge and gives the scene nice symmetry. The lower focal length (20mm) gives the viewer a wider perspective of the scene. Longer exposure allowed for the car lights to be seen in the foreground. Nice longer exposure capture!
Tip: A tripod is needed for longer exposures to avoid unintentional blurriness. In this instance, a shutter speed (wiki) of 25 seconds was used to allow more light into the camera and give the car lights that “trailing” effect through the scene.
