Back to the Future

I’ve said before that I’m a sucker for these shots. That’s partly because I love taking them. This is my latest from several I took last Saturday night.

I used my Rebel XT mounted on a tripod in the rear floorboard of my Honda Accord. I anchored the tripod by hanging a bag from the center and then seat-belted the tripod with the center belt. I used my Canon RC-1 remote and set the exposure to: 10 sec @ f/16; ISO 100.

Initial adjustments and crop of RAW file in Lightroom and added some saturation and then a color burn layer and mask in Photoshop.
