Photographer's Note

My first shot of Moscow to be uploaded to TE and the first shot to be uploaded so fast after making.

This is right in front of the Bolshoy Theatre. I was attracted by the curve so decided to zoom on it. I think the blur effect of the falling water caused by 1/10 exposure serves as a nice back- and foreground. I think I should go on experimenting with minimalist shots.

* Street View on

* 1/10 s – water looks smooth, no separate drops.
* ISO 100 (min ISO 80) – no noise.
* f/5,7 – I needed a blurry BG and more light.
* 100 mm (20x max zoom) – I love my cam's zoom (between 5 and 100 mm, i.e. 20x), zoom helps make wonderful compos, concentrate on the subject.
* A little bit ACDSee shadow/highlight and exposure adjustment.
