Busy Evening in Chania

Featured photo – Busy Evening in Chania

Ok, I hope you aren’t bored yet but here is another picture from Chania, Greece showing how busy Chania Old Town becomes in the evening. This time it’s a long exposure HDR image from 5 exposures. Longest exposure, 40 seconds, was needed to create nice blur on water and to blur moving people. As there were real crowds on that very evening I thought that it would look cool and give some sense of motion to this scene (in fact it’s the technique I really like and use it quite a lot).
