It was raining off and on all day, so I decided early in the evening that I would go back downtown late at night and redo this reflection shot looking down 8th street towards the historic Tiger Hotel. I love to look South down 8th street night or day, rain or shine. It has a view of the Tiger Hotel, and the street dead ends right in front of the columns and Jesse Hall, the centerpiece of the University of Missouri campus.
I discovered this reflection before and shared this photo. I was unhappy with that photo because my composition had the TIGER reflection slightly cut off. So I had to go back for a redo. Once I find a great view I like to revisit it time and time again until I perfect the composition. This one is still a work in progress.
This is a single 30 second exposure. I noticed a semi-truck coming up Broadway so I waited for it to chug up the hill before I started my exposure. I took several, some with no light trails and some with bright white ones, but I liked this one best.
