Shoreham Power Station Blue Hour I

Shoreham Power Station Blue Hour I

Photo Information
This evening I drove along the coast to Shoreham Power Station to photograph it in the blue hour. I must confess that I am drawn to photography at this time of day. Somehow all the images seem very calm. Even industrial buildings such as this one seem to take on a certain beauty when photographed in this light. This image was shot using my PENTAX K-1 with a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 lens.

An engaging industrial image, with calmness and a quiet dynamic curiously coexisting. Bravo!

It certainly does suggest tranquility - somewhat at odds with a power station!

Did you have a starburst filter on the lens?
A few of my photographs in flickr.
Lizars 1910 "Challenge" quarter-plate camera; and some more recent stuff.

No starburst filter used. They are just diffraction spikes caused by the aperture blades in the lens.
Capture: Pentax K-1, PENTAX HD PENTAX-D FA 24-70mm F2.8 ED SDM WR, PENTAX 100mm f/2.8 WR Macro, SAMYANG 14mm F2.8 ED AS IF UMC, SAMYANG 35mm F1.4 AS UMC, SAMYANG 85mm F1.4 AS IF UMC

Processing: Adobe Bridge for organisation, DxO Optics Pro Elite for RAW development, ON1 Photo RAW for some 'stylising' and Affintiy Photo for more involved edits.

This is where I would have gone for HDR which would have produced a completely different result! Most pleasing shot though!
