Night Photo, Gleadless Sheffield

gleadless sheffield night shot imagee

This night photo was taken in Gleadless in in Sheffield. Taking photographs at night is always a balance between time and light. Keeping the shutter open means blurring things that move. It can spoil a photo or enhance it and we see photographists using this method for car lights or water.

The only element that moved in this shot were the clouds and just a little bit, the moon also. Therefore, I was able to retain the sharpness of the main shot, but have motion at the top, creating a very moody picture.

I visualise where my photos may be used and this one is definitely giving me the sense of an album cover.
