I went to Chantilly with Serge Ramelli (photoserge.com) to try and shoot some autumn photos. By the time we arrived, the clouds had covered the sky entirely and we had a grey and rainy setting. Pretty boring.
As we left though we saw this little stream which I found quite interesting. As the street lights came on it gave it a warmer orange glow which fit perfectly with the blueish light that the sunset was giving us.
I shot this in HDR because I wanted to get all the light of the background behind the grids but I took out the “glowy” or painterly effect.
I particularly liked the effect of the water.
Details are: Aperture: f/9 – Exposure: 25 sec – Focal lengths: 18mm
