How To Win One of the Many Prizes: "Best Photos of Fellow Photowalkers!"  
Share your photos on Google+ and/or in The Photo Community with the tag #AustinPhotowalk2013 - winners will be chosen by a Team of Humans at Google and other coaches from the photowalk.

PhotoWalk Route - See Google Maps Route Walk at: http://goo.gl/maps/aGn0X 

We'll all start together at City Hall.  That's a great time to start trying to win the prizes by taking photos of fellow PhotoWalkers!  We'll then work our way up to 4th street, then 6th street and end the route inside the Hilton, where maybe one of you will buy me a drink.  We'll be taking photos of the city, the sights, and other PhotoWalkers all along the way.  The "ending" of these is always a bit strange because there is no formal gathering, but just keep taking photos until you peter out... you can drift away into the night like a firefly, then go home and get back on the sweet sweet internet with a beverage of your choice and post away.  You have a week to add photos to the event before the winners are chosen! :)  Thanks again in advance, and I think we'll have a great time together!

Chris Searle +Syrp shooting night timelapse..
 
Just a quick test of the syrp genie.

Taken out at Øyungen/Nordmarka last night. I'd planned a 3hr (18sec) shoot - but had to give up after 1:50 - even with a snow ditch to lie in out of the wind and good gear it was blowing up a real storm wind out there - so a little short version.

Tech - 20s f/2,8 using a 14-24 at 15mm ISO 640. Genie was set to a 3 hour 90° CW with 22s interval. Stopped after 1:50. Processed with Lightroom and LRTimelapse.
