Olympic Park in Slow Motion by Oliver Milburn london olympics

Best viewed in Lightroom mode (select + in middle image)

With the help of my Neutral Density filter I managed to get the shutter speed down to 2-3 seconds in the bright sunlight. The Olympic Park is such a busy place it’s a challenge to take in the landscape without the distraction of the ticket-holders, of which 90% were moving.

These shots actually came out a lot darker as I used the NDF on all of them. I brightened the shots up afterwards because I think it really highlights the colours of the park allowing the noise and bustle of the crowds to take a back seat. I liked knowing that I was the only one in the crowd who knew who was standing still. It was like having x-ray vision.
