I went out to Orchard Road today with the intention on doing some street photography. When I saw the pedestrians lined up across the road opposite Orchard Emerald, the multicultural makeup struck me.
My wide-angle was on the camera, its long end still not long enough to frame it, but I decided I would crop it later, so it remained to just nail the shot. I initially wanted cars blurring the image, veiling the pedestrians somewhat, so I went to shutter priority and set a 1/20th second shutter speed. I tried 5 or 6 shots with till I got a motorcyclist come by that didn't blur the pedestrians beyond a reasonable clarity. And that represents the fast pace.
What do you think? Its been a while since I have thought about symbolism in an image rather than straightforward action shooting, so I am prepared to get criticism, but do suggest how to do it better.
