and the scissors danced

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV - EF 70-200mm 1:2.8L IS USM - iso100
- f/6.3 - 1/80 sec - Michael Grobe

Found the dancing scissors in Belvedere in Vienna. Since it is ballseason right now, it must have been a waltz. I layered two exposures, one with the scissors in focus and one out of focus shot through a hedge. There is some lovely historical architecture in Vienna providing the flair of the city.

The gear used to create this image:

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV: one of the best low light and sports cameras today. Canon's best image quality as of 2011 makes this camera also highly desired for nature and landscape photography.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM: the image was shot with the discontinued version I predecessor, get the newer EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM. The 70-200 is my most used lens delivering great results.

Lightroom 3: the best tool for image management and manipulation on Windows and Macintosh.
