Wasn't easy taking this photo in -33 Celsius (Not including the wind factor), with cars honking as I was taking the second exposure for the left green light. Took a few shots, and choose the first one (that always happens to me); unless of course I take only one, then it sucks.
PS: Don't worry, no accidents from these virtually simultaneous green lights.

Post-processing: Crop, Contrast Enhancement, AutoEqualize.

I had to come back to it two or three times, but finally, yes. Time-lapse? or light problems?

Hey Montreal! It's always a green light for the rich and famous. LOL! I'm really not sure how you did this. Well done and nice composition.

Two greens eh?! Excellent focus and composition.

Ummm, the yellow lightbulb isn't working?? :-)

wow, 2 green lights, now that might be a problem. I'm not real sure that's a road sign, but hey, close enough for me. On second thought, you do have a roadsign in there.

yes....pretty scary! beautiful shot!
01/23/2004 01:52:03 PM
Hmm...looks like two sets of red and green lights are on, or else the sun is making it look that way? Nice capture.

Red light and Green light...your choice...How many accidents at this intersection?
01/22/2004 01:28:18 PM
I hope not all the lights are like this! There will be alot of accidents! nice shot and nice colors!

Excellent use of title to get me to really look at the shot!

Try shorter title next time - needn't be so suggestive! Let people find their own way...
Otherwise good

Once I saw the "danger" it took me a minute to figure out how you did that. Nicely done, and good picture all around. I especially like the choice of focus on the stonework. My favorite so far.

Yeah, Sherbrooke street is not safe anymore!!! Someone must talk to Gerald Tremblay!!! Good picture, I still cant beliebe it was green on both sides!!! 8
