Artist's description:

OK, so Manchester in England isn't on the coast, but this was the best I could do! This is Manchester United's "Old Trafford" stadium taken from across the water on the other side of Salford Quays.

There were some practical considerations to think of: to avoid the traffic I had to go by bike, which meant traveling light. So I took my took my little Panasonic G7 and a mini-tripod.

And there were some technical considerations, too: I wanted to keep the ISO low to avoid excess noise, which meant a very slow shutter-speed. I tried everything from 4 seconds to 1/3 second to get the right exposure and then tweaked elements of the picture here and there on the computer.

In the end a good night for me and a good night for United. We beat Benfica 2 - 0 !
