Had some fun with long exposures on this one! There was actually quite a crowd around the bean when I was shooting it, but the long exposures caused them to almost completely disappear.

Cool ghost-like effect. I like it a lot! Did you also use selective color?

Thanks Greg. When I did the HDR stacking I did desaturate the image and add a tint to it, but I did not do any separate selective coloring.

Amazing. Just absolutely amazing. How many exposures is this?

Thank you Dennis. What I like about this shot is that it shows you the Bean in a way that you can't normally see in real life.

Thanks very much, Jimi. This was a 3 exposure HDR stack, using triggertrap on my iphone to time the long exposures.

Cool shot, in the shot the buildings look leaning in different directions is that the way the shot really looks or did you add this in Photoshop

Thenks norm. No photoshop. Just the wide angle lens and the curvature of the sculpture.

This is an incredible shot. Makes one pause rather than a quick glance.
