During a party with live music I shooted this image, without great faith in what could be the result. When looking after the images, I discovered that the final effect was quite interesting (at least to my eyes, of course). For the curious, the group playing music is http://www.danceangels.com/ at http://www.cadelconte.com/
I’ve been invited by some friends for a dinner in an airfield. The dinner took place in the hangar, where the planes were all around (literally!). Of course a great light contrast, and a result which looks quite surreal and, in my eyes, interesting. Here it is.
NIKON D40X (40mm, f/7.1, 7.1 sec, ISO100)
I had some spare time to spend, so I climbed up to the square in front of the Rivoli castle, with the Collegiata Alta bell-tower and Turin hill in the background . Even if not late, it was almost night, and i took some shots to get some colors which are available just for few minutes at the dusk. Color balance in this kind of image is always a compromise, and the contrast between the cold sky and the warm artificial light usually results in nice postcard-like pictures, especially using HDR technique.
NIKON D40X (18mm, f/7.1, 1/80 sec, ISO100)
The dusk is one of the best moment to take HDR shoots. I took this one on the Mont Cenis lake border just before the dusk became night.
