HD at Night

by AxelLuther

I thought it is time to show a bit the Christmas atmosphere of Heidelberg (HD). Took this picture 10 months ago but it could have been from yesterday.

Cracking shot! love all the subtle details.

I was in Heidelberg when i was younger and we visited the Odenwald region for a swimming competition. Beautiful place as far as i remember.

I knew from the sharpness that it was yours, Axel. Wonderful townscape at night in high definition!

Hell Man, You must be SO tall!!

Nice and sharp , though, .
Long exposure, high ISO?
Best Regards, Larry.

All the gear & no idea.

Exif : No Data Recorded ..
Probably it underwent to a significant PS treatment. Of course no problem with this. It seems quite pleasant after all, .. except its too sharp for my taste. (Nobody is perfect ). And, I agree with Peter as for details.

Hi Larry - when I do HDR (like on this photo), I normally use standard settings (ISO 100 and 5 exposures with 1.5 aperture differences). So these were long exposures. The Exif data always gets lost in the HDR Software I use (well - to a certain extend understandable, as some of the data varies from shot to shot).
The slight noise in the sky was not the result of high ISO - it was a result of the weather - it was drizzling when I made the shots and I could not completely prevent that you see this)

Hi Senn - point taken (this might also be the result of shrinking the picture to 1000 pixel width - the original is more than 4 times as big and there the sharpness appears more natural - but I could have adjusted sharpness after shrinking )

Said too much or not enough .. any chance to read more about your rational of this kind of associations when shooting with HDR ?

Thanks anyway.
