Chania at Night
As you probably know from my earlier posts, Chania town in Greece I visited last summer is a beautiful place at all times of the day but it gets even prettier during early evening when sky and water turn blue and street lanterns are lit. So I spent quite a lot of time trying to capture this unique atmosphere and here is one of my attempts.
In this case I wanted to create really calm image (despite the fact the place is quite busy with all the tourists looking for a place to eat their dinner) so I used long-exposure to smooth all motion. Also as dynamic range was quite high (because there were deep shadows and very bright street lamps) I decided to use HDR – 5 frames at 1 EV spacing were enough.
