Picture This! – Our Next Assignment

From Above

Our next Picture This! assignment is “From Above.” We’re looking for images made from high vantage points that bring out designs, patterns, and points of view. This photo of cyclists was made from a bridge in London with a Canon PowerShot G11 and an exposure of f/8 at 1⁄250 sec at ISO 400. Image was processed using the Threshold Adjustment Layer in Adobe Photoshop.
