I took this shot last month in Paris when went there for my wedding. Paris is a very romantic city and there are lots of great bridges. This one was my favorite since I saw it in the web before I go there.
I went the place two hours before the sunset on the shooting day to find a nice spot. After taking a few test shots, I waited for the right time. I start to take series of exposures just after the bridge lamps lit. A few minutes later, I took I want when the blue hour started.
Post-process was not easy. I blended more than 10 exposures by using luminosity masks and luminosity selections for dynamic range, for some light effects and for focus stacking.
The main difference from my previous photo Starship, this had not yet dawned, so not a reflection on the water was drawn. Having not so much light, let me make a very long exposure with painting trace in the first light clouds.
The picture is a unique Raw, with only combining a neutral filter of four steps and black card technique.
I hope you like it. Have a nice Thursday. 🙂
