Photographer's Note

Early evening in January,on the busy entryway to the A1 highway from Bucuresti to Pitesti, the so-called second rush hour of the day takes place. An increasing number of people working in the urban area moved past the suburbs to what are to become satellite cities.The cars form a compact slow moving mass virtually in all directions for two or more hours in the morning and again in the evening. Public transportation in these areas is unfortunately sparsely represented with few buses and trolley-buses,each line with less than five arrivals per hour.The optimal vehicle remains a small bike for short to medium distance commutes. The picture shows a beautiful fiery sunset above all the ruckus -serene colors and splendid skies over the all too mundane madness below.
A short technical note: the 35 mm Nikkor lens is incredibly sharp and on the D40x ( a toy from 2010 or thereabout) it weighs next to nothing.Some sharpening was required and a little bit of zone toning but nothing major, the colors are vastly the merit of the CCD sensor of the D40X. They are amazing in good light and their color rendition precision is hard to match even by modern sensors- but once the light dims further than this the noise floor kills image quality faster than one might think. High ISOs are also a big no-no on traditional CCD sensors. Older cameras such as D70, D80, D40 and D40X, quirky ones as the D50 or D100 and several others had CCD sensors. Most modern ones are CMOS variant based .
