"Abstract Elements"
© David A. Ziser

This image was made while in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico just a few weeks ago. We were driving through the Barrio, just outside the city, on a chilly, rainy evening. The light was just disappearing from the scene. The very slow exposure and the motion blur combined for an extremely provocative image. I brought it into Photoshop and tried many variations but finally settled for the original image, totally unmanipulated in any way other than a very slight crop to the left. The image, to me, is very eerie with a certain tenseness about it. It almost begs the viewer to even be wary viewing it for any length of time, but nevertheless continues to draw the viewer into itself in an almost hypnotic way. Camera specs: Canon 40D fitted with 17-85mm lens at 66mm, F5.7 @ 5.2 seconds at ISO 400. Enjoy! --David
