I shot this one pretty late, way after sundown. I understand now why photographers say one should shoot right after the sun has gone down or before it gets up.
Night shots like these are pretty hard to do.
Despite a really long opening (something like 30 seconds) it is pretty rough on the sky. And a black sky just never comes out very interesting at all.
But I like the lights and the reflections in the water. Actually to get this effect on the water and the star on the lights, I had to mix two different images.
While this shot has probably been taken a million times, it’s a great place to shoot from and it’s so nice it’s hard to hold back from shooting it again.
This is a blend of 2 HDR photos (the water from one and the rest from another).
