Thank You. Oddly, I did have a flash in my bag that day. This is in the NYC new 911 Call Center. A full 11 story construction site. I did consider the flash because it was dark but the light would have been wrong and distracted the worker. I wedged myself into a beam and took about 6 exposures. This one was the shortest shutter speed. I really thought the slower speeds would allow more streaks but they just blurred together. I did learn one good lesson cheap. I almost changed lenses here. glad I didn't. at the end of the day my camera and bag were covered in dust, grit and concrete dust and who knows what else. The weather sealing on the camera and lens stopped all that crap from getting into bad places. This is where L lenses pay off too. but most importantly, don't change lenses in bad places. This would have been a sensor cleaning at least. Thanks for the complimnets5DIII 24-104 f4L @ 105 f6.3 1/125 ISO 1600. About 50% of the image was cropped outBrilliant!
I agree, Lovely Image well done.
Not using a Flash to fill, allowing just the light from the welding torch was the making of this shot, good decision, made the shot.
