Super great capture ... Congrats on your awards.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in London near the Piccadilly circus.
Time
I took the shot at dusk in the later afternoon.
Lighting
I wanted to have still enough light for the houses, but in contrast the lights of the cars should be already on. So I got a contrast between the grey cold houses and the sky and the warm lights of the cars.
Equipment
I used a Canon 600d with the kit lens. I hadn't got a tripod with me so I had to shoot out of my hand.
Inspiration
When I stood there I already had the final image in front of my eyes. So thats the reason why I took it.
Editing
I just made the sky and the houses a bit more grey and the saturation of the lights of the cars more brighten.
In my camera bag
There are two cameras: the Canon 7D and the 600D. I use many different lenses, normally the 17-55mm 2.8
Feedback
Try to choose a shutter between 1/8 to 1/4 second. The most cars and the houses are still sharp, but you got also some movement in the picture. That makes it more attractive.
