Shot for the Day (25 December 2016)

shot_of_the_day_25dec16

For the last couple of weeks before Christmas, I was in China on business.  I spent my time in Shanghai and Qingdao.  Unfortunately, in Qingdao, I did not have the chance to take any shots.  However, I was fortunate enough whilst staying in Shanghai to have a day when the smog was not too heavy and the sun was out, albeit briefly.

After taking lots of shot of the river and Pudong, from the boulevard on The Bund, I spotted a raised platform and included the foreground Christmas bustle.  To make the image more interesting, I used a combination of filters including a Polariser, Big Stopper and 0.9ND.  I was fortunate that the lady in the yellow jacket hardly moved whilst I took this long exposure, which really anchors the shot for me.
