I caught the Paramount at a lull, just after the ROT Rally Parade. What is usually a jumble of people cluttering the scene, I amazingly captured a blur of people exactly spaced between the bikes. It almost gives a staged appearance to the photograph. Rest assured, it was pure luck.
This is another one of those single image shots hand-held to optimize the dynamic range. With relatively little light coming from behind me, the motorcycles are rendered mostly as silhouettes. But I prefer it to the ultra-busy scene from yesterday.
It’s odd how quiet the scene looks, because all around me, there were loads of people and bikes. Goes to show that with selective composition, you can give a distorted impression. Shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and the 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens. Handheld at 0.2 seconds at ISO 200.
