Photo of the day #7 – Concorde, Scottish National Museum of Flight, originally uploaded by mattmuir.co.uk.
A slightly Abstract image here.
Taken at the Scottish National Muesum of Flight at East Fortune, Near Edinburgh last year.
I took lots of pictures of Concorde but felt the static shots didn’t really do such a special plane justice so tried to add a sense of movement to this shot. I achieved this using a slow shutter speed (0.8 of a second) while simultaneously twisting the zoom ring through it’s entire range to give a motion blur. No photoshopping here except for a tiny bit of adjustment to the colours.
I realyl like the way that, despite the motion blur I have managed to keep some parts of the shot relatively sharp such as the rear landing gear.
