Night and Blue Hour

Rathaus Quedlinburg

Rathaus Quedlinburg 

2 years of SSC: I chose long exposure photography (this photo from last Saturday evening just about fits the required time frame:-)

The too bright street lamps were a sore trial. The photo is underexposed by 2 stops and there still are some burnt out details....

Une scène bien servie par la pose longue.
Il est vrai que les éclairages modernes à bases de LED sont meilleurs pour l'écologie et les économies d'énergie, mais ils font perdre le charme des éclairages d'autrefois qui étaient plus chaleureux. Les décorations de Noël en sont les premières perdantes.

This is very nice! And if there's any detail in the bright lights that is blown out, it doesn't show it very much. Something that Photoshop CS2 could fix if you're not satisfied with it. I think it's fine like it is, however.
19 months ago.
Gudrun club has replied to HaarFager club
Thanks a lot, Kenny! I cheated and cloned out a few of the worst bits, only tiny bits, though;-) LEDs are not very photographer friendly if the lamps are too big, small ones make nice stars but larger ones just blow out...

Gut geworden !
Die Lichtverhältnisse waren tatsächlich die größte Herausforderung. Die Extreme zwischen Hell (dieses Lampengefunzel) und Dunkel (die eigentlichen Motive) waren echt krass.
Einen Versuch (mit Deinem Stativ) hatte ich auch. Bin aber mit dem Resultat sehr unzufrieden ...

A lovely night image and I'm surprised at the floral decorations - very unlikely with our local council . :-)

Gudrun club has replied to tiabunna club
Thanks a lot, George! The window boxes with red geraniums were all over town, cared for by the house owners. At the council hall I guess the employees water them. Geraniums are not expensive and can be propagated from cuttings. The wild wine is a climber which only needs to be cut back once in a while.

The colours and detail in the image are just lovely Gudrun, especially viewed large.

I'm not sure there is too much to worry about with the light from the street lamps - it certainly doesn't detract from the image! I did some low-light stuff recently and had the same problem.

Thank you, Keith! I probably should have stopped down a bit more to get nicer stars.... But generally modern light sources are just too bright, you get the problem nearly everywhere these days.
