It was a warm night (about 60F), which was nearly a record for the date, the makings of a nice sunset, and there was no wind. So we decided to go see the lights on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. The final shot deserves a little explanation. I was shooting three bracketed photos. I was using a tripod, BBF and a remote for the shutter release, however I had inadvertently left Live View on after setting everything up. On the middle (normal exposure) shot, the autofocus in LV wigged out and it was obvious it had focused on something other than what I had chosen. I kept it and later ran it and the other two frames through Photomatix. It turned out to be a serendipitous moment. Perhaps Monet would be pleased.

One funny story. A guy stopped to talk while I was shooting a little later. The place was filled with people, maybe 2k-3k. People wandering in front of my camera. The guy said something about all the people ruining the photo, but I assured him I had a people filter on the lens. When he saw the shot, he was a believer and wanted to know where to get one of those filters. The magic of long exposures!

I used to live in Salt Lake City .. I rented from the Bishop of the Capital Hill ward back in the 60’s .. worked in Orem ... I love your shots ... and the people filter .. it brought back such wonderful memories .. in 1966 I was 4th on the list to be hired for the Salt Lake City PD .., my wife worked at Beehive State Bank .. then I got my draft notice ... my world changed forever ..

What a beautiful set! We have not gone downtown yet and this encourages me. It sounds like we should go early for decent photo ops.
