Image With Long Shutter Speed

my objective here was to produce a photograph where the subject matter displays evidence of movement (blurring). I decided that street traffic would be the most accessible and that shooting at night would give the best contrast to highlight the traffics movement from one place to another.

With low light at night a slow shutter speed increased the light hitting the censor helping record more detail as well as capturing the movement of the traffic. I kept my ISO down at 100 to keep a crisp image and my aperture high at f/20 to record the full frame of detail. I used a number of shutter speeds and apertures to get the correct image but ended up with a 4 second shutter speed as longer shutter speeds where making the traffic non existent in the frame only the cars lights where visible. Here some of the bus is visible enough to presume it is a bus moving through the shot.

Image with Low Aperture

I was asked here to produce a photograph where subject matter was isolated from its surroundings and where I selectively considered detail within the image. In essance an image with a small depth of field that is focused on one area or object within the image.
I used a common object to most, the cigarette.

Being late in the afternoon light from my window was fading so I increased my ISO to 200 rather than 100 I used a 4 sec shutter to capture the detail and for more light to be recorded by the sensor. To achieve the objective of an object or area in focus wile the remainder of the frame out of focus I dropped my aperture down to 4.8 with my focus on the third cigarette of the right of the frame in focus.
