Unseen Light II


The last of my old town posts for now.   This was another case of long exposures and HDR processing reveal color that was not fully anticipated.  Next time I will try to simplify my compositions, and try to keep a better eye out for how objects may pick up colors from nearby colored light sources.

Unseen Light


My wife and I had both noticed this awning, its edge trimmed with a ribbon of light blue lights.  I also noticed what I thought was a visually interesting network of support braces underneath.  However, I most certainly did NOT see or anticipate how the underside would pick up all the different colored lights from inside the establishment, which was revealed during HDR processing.  Sometimes you do get lucky, and learn a little something for future use.
