Lonely Streets - MyPictureDay Submission

in #mypictureday6 years ago

Hello everyone! I am back again today with more street photos of Seoul. I went for a walk and captured all of these while out walking around Seongbuk-Gu district of Seoul (for anyone that doesn't know, this is in the northern part of Seoul). I took these pictures at about 1am, so that's why there aren't many people at all in these pictures... Anytime before 1am and there will be lots of people!

Whispering Stream

This is one of the many streams that weaves through Seoul. These streams can be found all over the city! They provide a nice place to walk (with a little nature), and an easy way to get places. This stream joins with another one further down which expands it even more!

Little roads border the stream on both sides, with many little stores and homes bordering these streets. As you can see, they aren't the newest or most amazing stores, but they all have their purposes and are a big part of Korea!

Night Life!

Walking further along the stream brings us to a main road, somewhere that actually has some people again! Don't get me wrong, there are people out strolling along the stream or biking home, but they are few and far between. Back on the main road buses are still running, taking the night dwellers home!


Nice shots, what iso setting did you use?

Iso 500 for all the images. The A7Rii is amazing in low light as the iso performs better than any other camera (except other Sony's!), but on top of that the image stabilisation allows me to take photos at 1/2 second handheld (such as the bus picture). Further it retains shadow details very well, so it's easy to brighten the images in post.

sweet, yeah im still learning to use mine, using manual lenses with the adapter but the exposure setting keep changing randomly haha.

Yeah, me too really haha. It takes a long time to learn everything it can do! I haven't tried the adapters yet, what is the performance like?

Your photos are very special. Although I have also A7R2 I haven't gotten the same night image as yours.

Thank you for the comment! :) Yeah, the camera is a big part, but I don't think we can ever get the same images as others!
