Trying to find some original reading for ToM: what about a stone street as an human domestication of a land ?
Shot taken in the nice small town of Dinan which keeps the witness of previous history on the streets and building. A place to visit if you are going in Brittany.
It is early morning to get almost nobody in the street.
It is also an HDR to manage the big dynamic range between the street and the sky, unless the sky would have been totally bright.
This is pure atmosphere - and beauty! A photo to be proud of. It looks like taken hundred and fifty years ago. The blue hour with its vers special light - natural and artificial - is caught here in a stunning way. The warm light of the lamps contrasts wonderfully with the rest of the scenery. Another attraction is the enormous depth in the picture. Hats off! ... for this photo, a great one. A very good example of what HDR is able to do.
Greetings from at last summerly Germany!
Very good example of HDR without the Disney cartoon look. In some situations it is impossible to achieve a balanced exposure any other way without adding noise trying to bring details from dark shadows.
Early morning blue hour is probably the best time for an urban scene that you don't want people in.
Beautiful shot and a wonderful blue hour with combination of natural light and artificial light. If not for the electrical element, this look like an image of the past. Excellent texture and details of the stone street. I feel like I can just step in and go back in time.
A very charming look at this village street, with my favorite surface, cobblestones. I love the lighting as thee is enough light to distinguish everything, and yet there is a bit of mystery to the areas of darkness. For me, it is better than a blue hour shot. I have rarely used HDR, as it sometimes gives an unusual effect, but this looks great. I am probably behind in my knowledge. Ha ha. Roger
ça sort de ton style habituel, mais tu as ben composé avec les lumières artificielles et naturelles, les pavés luisants et une belle perspective. Bien sûr, tu as dû te lever tôt pour éviter toute intrusion humaine mais aussi avoir ce ciel bleu juste avant l'aurore. Pour pinailler, ça penche un peu sur la gauche

Oserais tu insinuer que je sortais d'un bar: pas à 6h du mat quand même ;-)
Love this soft glow on the cobblestones, it looks like it had rained at some point before. The STAR light in the back is just spot-on, you sort of go there with the eyes attracted by this tiny spot, it nearly glows like sunlight. Tiny stuff ... but with a great result. Got to be found and made something out of it :-) Yes I can see this, it is a very nice place to visit and brings you back to some other time "in the past". Lovely blue hour image. And now back to the future, have to run for the train ... LOL ...
You certainly got a perfect combination of composition and post-processing elements. The impact is eerie and reminds me of some Harry Potter sceneries.
It looks good! I just wonder why horizontal and not vertical ... :-)
You really have blue hour compositions nailed, I'm interested in trying to use HDR in this way. Your work motivates me.

I was not trying other softwares, what proposes Lightroom is enough if you are looking for natural rendering.
