White washed houses of Mangalem district at dusk.
Yet another rainy day during my trip to Albania. In broad daylight the river looked rather unappealing but at night it was transformed by reflected light and colours.

Yes, the evening view obscures the look of the rather muddy and not too pleasant river. You've made it look almost like it's frozen and the orange and yellow reflections look gorgeous. The city itself is at its advantage any time of the day. I was here in 2009 and enjoyed it very much. You've captured the lights from among the old houses very well.

Well, if that scene looked drab in daylight, you certainly did wonders here.
Perfect exposure, incredible clarity and a river that looks like molten silver, this is a real pice of art that you have created here.
have a good time

ottimo il controllo delle luci, le costruzioni sono ben illuminate ed il cielo è blu. Molto bello anche l'effetto della lunga esposizione sul mare, l'acqua sembra avere una vita propria ed il risultato è molto interessante.

Kia ora Kasia,
Great moody shot. The lighting adds a sense of mystery. Image is sharp but the movement of the water gives an interesting effect. Cheers, Neil

dobry strzal z fajnego POV. Ladnie oswietlone budynki. Dobry czas wybralas na fotografowanie. Statyw sie przydal. Albania to kraj jeszcze do konca nie poznany przez turystow.

really like this shot. The lights are wonderful but it is the colour of the sky and the translucent waters that make it so special for me. Beautiful and accomplished imagery!
Regards - Brian.

co tu dozo mowic-blue hour w najlepszym wydaniu.A co do deszczu-to po tych wszystkich przygodach o ktorych pisalas i w Barcelonie,czy na Wyspach Kanaryjskich przestal juz robic na tobie i twoim aparacie wrazenie:)Efekt jaki tu osiagnelas jest naprawde piekny.Blekitne niebo kontrastujace z oswietlonymi fasadami domow,a do tego rzeka odbijajaca swiatla miasta i wygladajaca niczym tafla lodu.Widzialem wiele zdjec z dluzszym czasem naswietlania,gdzie woda wygladala swietnie,ale na twoim zdjeciu wyglada naprawde zjawoskowo.

I am really impressed by this image. I love the composition and the perspective with the houses on the slope and the reflections in FG is amazing. The light is excellent. The framing is very well chosen, in a slight lower-angle view that works very well graphically, and gives a nice perspective to the housing. The light has a beautiful effect on the elements, and the colors are magnificent. Well done!!!

The illumination is always attractive when set against the blue sky. This is nicely framed by the intresting details of the houses. Excellent exposure.
Have a nice evening,

Hello Kasia,thanks for visiting my little gallery and this way you gave me the opportunity to visit yours which is an extraodrinary gallery!This shot of beautiful Berati houses is a very spectacular one especially with the blue hour lighting, the part of the mountain on the left gives a stronger personality and a great contrast to the pure white! The soft movement of the water gives a softer look! A beautiful picture of a beautiful place in Albania!

I have not seen the river so full for years. You have done great to have the light effects on the water.
Thanks for sharing

Exposure is well chosen, but with such a long exposure water surfaces and reflections on them are vague and unclear. So perhaps a better solution is to shorten the exposure and increase the ISO and / or aperture value!
