The Beauty of Boston Storrow Drive Rush Hour Traffic

Storrow Drive in Boston is well known for its congested traffic during the morning and evening rush hour. The other day I went out to use the traffic as a computational feature. During long exposure photography head and rear lights of cars turn into beautiful streams of white and red. Effectively used, these light streaks lead the viewer into and through the picture to the main subject. In both Boston Photography Images the main focus is on the Charles River skyline while the sea of red and white guides towards the Boston skyline.

Camera settings were similar f/18, 20 to 25 seconds at ISO200. During routine post processing steps I removed dust spots, minimally adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final photos of Storrow Drive traffic with the Boston Back Bay skyline.

Good light and happy photo making!
