Challenge: Photoshop Terms II (Minimal Editing I*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D300s
Lens: Opteka 6.5mm f/3.5 Manual Focus Aspherical Circular Fisheye
Location: Dubai
Date: Apr 3, 2012
Aperture: 11.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 4
Date Uploaded: Apr 2, 2012

This is a shot of a car tunnel that takes you from Sheikh Zayed Road to the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. I strapped my camera to the grill of my car with nylon rope and used a wireless remote to fire the shutter while I was driving through the tunnel.

This was pretty nerve-wracking, considering I'm not exactly an expert at tying knots, and if my camera came loose on the highway, I was going to have to find a new hobby.

Woo hoo! Blue! Thanks to all for the votes and comments!

Also got this on 1x: Tunnel Vision ... It's been a good week!

Congratulations on the blue - fantastic artistic image. Thank goodness your knots held and it ended up as woo hoo and not boo hoo. Congrats on the 1x acceptance, too. The colour looks a little more intense on there.

Quite an impact... love this shot. The blues are great, but the red at the end of the tunnel makes it.

A 9 from me but nonetheless, like it's colour, this may take the Blue.

I can't quite work out what this is (taken from back of a speeding car maybe?) or whether it abides by minimal editing.. but i do like it lol, its getting a 9 from me and i just hope it does follow the ruleset. good luck :)

Oh! WAY COOL!


Wish it had all happened on a Third instead of being so centered, but that's a nitpick.

Hypnotic. Super smooth, icy cool, with the vanishing point being a lovely warmer color. Incredible shot straight from camera. Awesome image in any case.
