Brisbane City (corner Adelaide and Wharf Streets)
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I was trying to walk off a sick feeling and came across this scene. This intersection has no priority turning, and I reckon both of these buses tried to run a yellow light.

P.S. Sick feeling stuck around.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 30/1mm
Exposure: 1/200" @ f/35/10, ISO 100

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Crop to get you a bit closer to the action
  2. Curves: darks -50, shadows -30 - to darken the black plastic of the buses; Blacks +10

The wash-up:

Happy with the result. I considered putting on the polariser but thought it wouldn't do much to benefit (the reflections on the windscreens are not bad).

What would you do?

    LOL bus vs bus, you don't see that very often. And BCC would need another 2 buses to replace these while their Inspectors inspected the crash. Good excuse to take the train 🙂
