A last spin

A last look at the Metro Centre

Well, at least for now.

Our trip from South Shields to Gateshead’s Metro Centre finished with a few last rides for the kids at Metroland, which will close this week. Just the right time to try a longish exposure to capture this ride spinning for the last time. This has a fair bit of Photoshop treatment to counteract the very strong light coming from the overhead windows, additional layers with colour and texture were added before painting in black through a mask to reveal the lights on the ride.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 40mm lens, 1/6 second, f11, iso 400
