This was taken on the corner of Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester using an ND400 filter. This allowed me to reduce the exposure by just over 8 stops to around 15 seconds. Long enough to blur all the wandering shoppers and leave the lone busker and his acquaintance in the frame.

This next image is possibly the start of a new project I am contemplating involving documenting the various different housing estates around Manchester. I've still to fine tune the details and this was just a trial shoot, but I liked this image nonetheless.
