Photographer's Note

Crossing The Blaak in 12 Seconds

Displayed here is one of the rare cooproductions of Jackson Pollock and Cees van Dongen in unique expressive urban action painting……..oooops wrong text ;-))

While nighthunting with Rinie, we crossed the Blaak, one of the major thoroughfares of Rotterdam, to get closer to the Blaak train/subway station which will be featured in this series later on.
While carrying the Oly on its Talens tripod I accidentally tripped the shutter with this capture as result. Together with Rinies posting it forms a nice set of failures which we don’t keep from you, as they nicely illustrate that it’s no mean feat to go nighthunting.

PCS2 tech: cropped to get a more pleasing composition; contrast, levels, curves & saturation (differentially) adjusted; USM-ed; added a frame and saved for the web.
