All American Commute

This Smithsonian Magazine Editor's Choice is one of my favorite exposure of all time. This is a 30 second shot taken prior to sunrise looking over the Memorial Bridge as rush hour traffic hurries across. I particularly like the "heartbeat" of the photography, a jogger's chestlight that appears on the right hand side of the image. NOTE: A one half stop soft GND filter was used to slightly darken the above the horion portion of this photograph. Contrast was also slightly adjusted.
