Budavár Palace in blue hour

by aGinger

Part of the World Heritage Site, the Castle, and within it the Royal Palace, stand to the west of the Danube on a hill of marl. A labyrinth lies inside the hill, while centuries of architectural and cultural heritage are visible at ground level.

Another great night shot from Almasi. You've timed it right to keep some colour in the sky, just before it goes completely black.

I think the most important thing is timing. You can take these type of photos in blue hour. This is the period just before sunrise/just after sunset, when streetlights are on and sun is away. Your eyes can't see the sky so blue like cam can see, you'll find the sky is grey mostly. I usually use Aparture priority with f/8-11 with tripod and +1 brightness. I hope it helps.
