Hong Kong, inside Tsing Yi tunnel. Photo taken from a double decker bus going to the airport. The bus was in motion, probably 80km/h due to the speed limit in the tunnel, other cars were in motion too. I think all cars had the same speed, this is why all of them are sharp in the picture.

To Amos: I didn't hold the camera in my hands - 1/4s is way too long to hold it steady. I placed the camera on a small "shelf" next to the wind shield on the upper deck of the bus. The road in the tunnel is really smooth, that is why the picture is sharp.

About 15 minutes later I took City <--- picture...

Original picture, slightly adjusted contrast.

Good shot! It's almost like a scene from a computer game. I love the way the curves draw the eye away to the vanishing point and the cars about to turn the corner. Can't make up my mind whether it would be better with a car closer to us, or whether that would just detract from the smoothness of the scene. Very well captured :-D

An incredible shot. Very sharp. Nice colours. I agree with Adrian, about the lines curving into almost one point - excellent - especially as three of the lines originate from the corners of the photo.

Nice shot! Well seen, clean & sharp
I like the lines & the curves :)

It looks almost too perfect to be real...amazing clarity for a `motion` shot.Well done.

Unbelievable as aforementioned by all. Hard to believe its a photo and not something rendered by a program! good job

Well, like everyone here, i'd like to say that your shot is amazing!
By all means, keep the current framing, the long tunnel really give this unreal feeling!
Good Work!

Wow! This is really good. It inspires me to take the double decker to Kowloon tonight with my camera!

The sharpness is amazing ! every grounds are well taken, the curves are interesting. The subject was very pleasant, you're right !

You took another great shot. Ilove everything in this.Incredible the sharpness.

This is just amazing! What can I say when I see something like this? Your idea was brilliant and you executed all parts of this image really, really well. Wonderful shot!

I am totally absorbed by this shot , what excellent clarity and foresight to think of taking it
well done , workshop is also very good

Beautiful picture, nice colors. Its a picture but somehow "alive"

Incredibly clean shot for a tunnel! That everything is so sharp in a fast moving, low-light situation is a tour-de-force... Bravo Maciej, you have capture the moment with excellence!

Workshop is OK but I kind of like the colorfull flares, it add a touch of kaos to the otherwise very organised image.

All has been said... All i can say... fabulous.

There is a strong sence of movement, and that "smooth"movement in this pix. It actually messes with my eyes. This is abosilutely great!!

this is really a both strange and beautiful pic.
Adrian said it in a few words comparing it to computer games : it displays the smoothness programmers like to provide as for backgrounds but also the sharpness of the main characters (here the cars).
My eyes really can't get accustomed to the fact the cars are so sharp while we are supposed to move, it's like being on a mechanic sidewalk.
Excellent pic.

Tremendous execution with great intent. The results of your work here have really paid off. Though the results may be chance like others suggest, you had the forethought to set the shot up as you did.

Your vantage point on the front of the top deck was brilliant, as it has put the camera smack in the middle of the vertical plane as well. This has added a great element to the framing.

I too have taken many photographs in HK tunnels, but none as effective as this.

I've missed this one... What could I say more? Excellent composition achieving great triumphs... An artistic shot with a stunning sharpness. Congratulations.

There's something I don't like in this picture... It wasn't me to shot it! :o) Just kidding.

I think all have been said, but from my part the softness of the road and walls in contrast with sharpness of the cars it's just fabulous! The composition of the cars also is and the distance from "us" is also great. A master-piece.

Impressive image, all is perfect the color, framing the photograph is very clean a beautiful work.

Amazing. Like Adrian wrote in the very first critique, it is somewhat reminiscent of a computer game. Altogether an awesome accomplishment.

Stunning mix of smooth and sharp image. Beautiful two color uniform shades, enhanced by long stripes and these green lights. What a good inspiration to shoot in the curve, with cars placed all together at the end! Yes, a computer game wouldn't do better. Fantastic result. WS is the cherry on the cake. Congratulations to both.

Very graphic as before mentioned...
Good roads, good suspentions, careful driving and awake photographer...!!!


SHARP!!!!!!! bw would be nice too....

Great shot!!!!
Since this photograph was too clear and unreal, I thought the screen of Playstation2 :-D

Maciek, co tu dużo pier... Fota jest zajebista!!!

Very sharp picture. Besides the two flares, there is no disturbing artefacts. You had a great idea. Nice composition.

no need to add more comments, great shot! thumbs up for this picture !!

Remarkable beauty! Took my breath away.

incredible ! 1/4s is impressive, clean and sharp splendid
bravo !

I agree with orme & cool s15.
really a catch of time& location , in a good moment...

words? you don't need any words, any critique about this picture!
Absolutly fantastic! Amazing ;)

Impressive picture, this one. I guess everything has been said by now, but I wanted to let you know I love it. It's perfect IMHO.

Is it possible? This is just amazing. Absolutely something of the better I have seen here on TE. Congratualtions. Wonder why I haven't seen this before?

Fantastic Maciej ! I love your very inventive shot : that was really wise to think using the bus shelf to shoot like this. This mix of smart ideas, luck and ideal conditions make the result perfect to my mind. I'm not disturbed at all by the reflection on the shield.

I have a great feeling of speed, modernism when looking at this picture. It's really dynamic especially with the perspective created by both road and lights !

Superb shot !

There's a real sense of frozen motion here... so crisp. Well done!

When I see this photo, kooks like I'm travelling on the bus!

I think this is a great-great shot.
The geometry - the colours and the smooth texture next to the sharp cars create a wonderful composition !

I appreciate the comments on how you took the picture.
Thumbs UP

Everything was said already. Bellisimo! Bravo! Congratz! Glad that finally I've found that one.

Sorry, ran out of smileys. Will return.

As promised - big smiley.

Great shot ! This is almost too good to be true.. how can you manage to take such sharp pictures at that speed !! great work..

Wow... this is great. Love the feeling of motion, yet it is very sharp. Great idea.

incredible shot and vey well captured and too sharp and clean.Curves attratct the eyes.very well captured.

this is such a cool shot! Looks like a video game!

Geant , grandiose, parfait !

Fantastic. The curves, the lights, the movement and mainly the work, the difficulty that you had to take off this photo. Congratulations!

Well, I am very impressed by this picture. Thank you for telling us how you did it in your note.///Update, I'm looking at it again and I really think it's a wonderful picture. (march 14)

This is surreal and I love it!
The curvature, the road dividerlines, the overhead lights, the reflected brakelights!
The blended texture of the road gives it a real sense of speed here.
Great luck having the cars in focus!

Fantastic shot with an incredible sharpness. A high graphic impact. Very, very well seen!

Good idea and fantastic result. I like the whole composition. You were very lucky to find a good place to put your camera. Is this the only shot you took?

Everything has now been said, computer game estethics is the closest description, I still think the photo is a tech riddle, it makes the spectator think How?

This is truly one of your best shots. The motion blur is brilliant, along with the sharp image of the travelling cars. The high angle definitely was an advantage point for this one. Great use of your imagination with the tripod method. Good work, Maciej.

Very nice picture, everything has been said ! Just want to add a smiley ! Perfect shot, thanks Maciek !

amazing motion - you can feel you speeding along - you have an amazing capture of an instant in time

I can't find words to describe the beauty of this. Well done.

I can say just on word: perfect! everything else told the guys above me already!!

Amazing stuff. There is so much here that could have gone wrong, but for some reason you've managed to create that perfect shot. You do well to succeed in capturing that perfect moment every time where others would consistantly flounder. Judging by the remainder of your submissions, I'd place your photographic ability into the genius category. Simply outstanding!

just adding this to my favs

Hallo Maciej!!
Wspaniale zdjecie!! jak na nie patrze to widze ten ruch i ped w tym tunelu!!! Swietne ujecie

Upadle Anioly/Chunking Express ..- przypomina mi to scene z jednego z tych filmow, jak chlopak niemowa wiezie motorem swoja 'dziewczyne'. Swietne zdjecie.

Wonderful perspective Maciej. It is amazing the sharpness you got for a shot in movement. It deserves all the points you got.
Very well done!!

Great photo, considering the lightning conditions.
A message to TrekEarthers: If you travel through some tunnels in Serbia, near Grdelica, drive carefully, as they are not lighten. And the road there is not smooth.

Learned a lot with your notes. loved this shot!

That's just an amazing shot!
The cars where realy all at the same speed and that was lucky, but all the rest was very well idealized by you.
It´s all perfect!
Greatings, Artur.

Good Shot! but look like drawing ?

Very Very beautiful indeed.

Hi Maciej,

Superb shot ! I love the speed impression with the neverthless sharp cars. These lines look great.

Congratulations and thanks for sharing and having the idea of taking this picture !

comment les voitures peuvent-elles etre si net avec la route et le tunnel si filés ? c'est magnifique !

I just saw this picture in the intro page and i think this is very impressive! It's amazing that you can take such a good picture through the windshield and which such stability, too. Very good exposure timing, well composed picture.

Superb Capture, Nice detail in the curves.

It looks very clean and space aged. The lines and the lights on the top and the road draw your eye in. Great capture.

great lines, fantastic sharpness... Just while going to the airport !

incredible picture! amazing that sharpness! the best ever, weldone!!

what a great shot! simply sharp... yeah..maybe all those cars in same speed! nice one!

AMAZING SHARPNESS!!!! And to think you did that with a prosumer on a riding bus! Good asphalt!
Good lighting, too!

This photo is very very nice, the effect on the asphalt is incredible, so is the sharpness of the other cars.

This contrast (motion blur, but sharp cars) is very unusual and makes your photo unique. Our brain get a bit confused :)

Great Motion picture! Sharp and crisp.

awsome shot - I feel a little queesie when looking at this photo (it triggers memories of caroussel rides as a kid - I guess that is good - what a rush.


This is an excellent tunnel picture. Picture composition is excellent. I was impressed the way you have taken shot covering the cloor and roof and is very nice to see the lights on the roof were parellel to divider markers of the road. excellent picture


This shot is pristine -- it is so sharp. While you chose not to show motion, I can still feel the cars moving -- FAST! Great contrast in the dark tunnel as well.

Hello Maciej!Very well captured,good shot.Very sharp. Nice colours make a incredible shot.Congratulations and well done.

Seems pointless to add more points to this photo but here goes.


Probably one of the most beautiful pict in TE!

incredible POV and an excellent view, i like it a lot

Brilliant job. It is incredibly sharp to make it in movement. Very nice. Congratulations


Hi Maciej,

Really good shoot ! I love it !
The perspective is good, the bottom colors (cream & light brown) are harmonious and there is a contrast with the black color of the top of the photo...

Rally nice.

This picture is not real! Wow!!!! This is sooooooooo perfect! I'll add to my favorites, and I'll pray all gods in heaven I would EVER have the chance to take a shot like this.


Hi Maciej D.
Just say one word.

" Classic " ;)

Keep it up n up my best wishes are always with you.
M. Latif

wow! amazing shot indeed. very sharp picture considering ur in motion!

An incredible shot. Very sharp. Nice colours.

perfect, perfect, perfect...

Hello Maciej, it's just incredible how you got the tunnel blurred but the cars so sharp. The effect is almost unreal.

Out of words! Okya, your bus was fast and road smooth( Finest blured road and side, All the cars and you were on almost constant speed and distance hencforth( Cars are real Focused and sharp ), but all those green bilbs should also show some kinda streak as they are static too.

Well leave my dumb curiosity for another day, let's not spoil the party,....ONE PATIALA SHOT for "Motion in a tunnel"

Impressionante image ! Bravo pour la note qui nous en apprend plus sur la manière dont as réalisé la prise de vue ! Cette image est vraiment irreélle ! Le filé du tunnel va contre la conception que nous avons de la photo de nuit en filé ! Ici c'est le décor qui bouge et les voitures qui sont fixe !
Superbe !



An amazing shot with so much lines, leading your eyes to dizzy!...
Amazingly sharp & clean, a shot to cherish, no doubt.

Incredible shot!

Merry Christmas for you and your family

Perfect capture. Very nice work.

Hello Maciej. ¡Qué imagen mas impactante! Se siente hasta la velocidad de los coches por el tunel, parece que estás dentro de él. Qué nitidez. Es increíble la sensación! Felicitades.

very clean and great vision

That's what i call a motion effect! I like the geometry of the elements in the composition and the difused colors. Congrats Maciej.

Fantastic photo - this is the only critique I can post.

This photo was taken in the future?... maybe... 30th century? I know it wasn't... the cars still have wheels and don't fly!!! Great shot... great roads in Hong Kong :D... congratulations!

In your photo the road have motion and the cars have no movement... I take a shot a little bit different from yours... my road is freeze and cars have motion... highway...

Już Ci tyle napisali że krótko - BŁYSK I PAŁER! :-)

Incredibly clean and sharp having in mind the conditions. Extraordinary photo, compliments

Spectacular! Really great shot.

HenkNice composition,just like an open window on this typical motion with great BW
Well done

I believed what u said... but its really hard to believe... really... well done!

Great shot!! All the smooth lines form excellent composition and guide the viewer's eyes through the image.

wow!what an amazing shot!the curves sort of draws you into the picture.and it's also great how you managed to get the other cars so sharp!well done!

I love the velvety smooth colours and curve - to it looks like a car racing computer game meets a Galaxy chocolate advert!

I agree with the above. Great shot, congratulations.
Kind regards

wow! what a picture seems computer generated.

That's a very nice photo, original. i love the atmosphere and light!

feel very modern, thank you

Great perspective and depth. I am amazed at how you were able to get such a sharp shot from a moving vehicle. TFS

Troche szczescia i duzo inwencji tworczej. Efekt niesamowity - jak screenshot z gry komputerowej.

Is this real . Nice.

Witaj Maciek. To jest naprawde super fotografia z kazdego punktu wizualnego. Zrobione w ruchu, a jednak jakby zamrozone tlo, wspaniala kolorystyka i clarownosc, idealnie wywazona symetria lini i obiektow, oraz glebi obrazu. Po prostu strzal w dziesiatke !!!
