NCC Christmas Lights

In December of 2007 I did a small photo contract with the NCC (thanks to Thom Fountain). I just noticed today (by chance) that they used my photo of Parliament Hill lit up by the lights as their home page web banner. Sweet!

from the NCC website: "From December 13, 2009 to January 7, 2010, every day from 4:30 pm to 2 am, Canada’s Capital Region will sparkle with more than 375,000 dazzling lights." More details here:

Parliament Hill Christmas Lights - 2007
Today, if I had to do it again, I would shoot this scene with the Brenizer Method (google it) with my D3 and a different lens and stitch a panorama together with Photoshop.

However, this 2007 photo was shot with a 30 second exposure at 12mm at f/22, with a Nikon D200 on a tripod. I remember it was quite nice outside and not too cold.
