Photographer's Note

This was my second posted night shot from Bergen and was shot during a walk with my father. As some of you may have seen, he has posted some from the same walk. There was for once nice weather these days, so we took the chance and got two days of blue hour-shots of Bryggen. We chose to use one day on each side of Vågen (The bay seen in front). This was taken during the second day, at the other side of Vågen. I tried with several exposures and found the right one at last. This was not my first shot from this POV and with these buildings filling the picture. The other one is posted at TE, but was shot just before sunset.

Just a thought that came to my mind right now. Only three cities on about the size of Bergen are located further north. Anchorage, Arkhangelsk and Murmansk. Of these, only Arkhangelsk has a larger metropolitan population than Bergen. But, the two Russian cities are declining while Bergen and Anchorage are both growing rapidly. So kind of legitimate to say that Bergen is one of the northernmost large cities in the world Just a thought that came to my mind, because I think this image shows some of the northerly charm that you don't find much further south.

This is my first ever re-post here on TE. The reason for making this re-post is that I wasn't very satisfied with the post-processing I did back when I uploaded the original if any at all. I first discovered this when stalking my own photo with a google image search. Several other sites used the image (be careful with your own...) and some of them had did some post-processing for the better. They did not have the original file though, so it was not of the highest resolution. But they inspired me to see what I could do with it, and this is what I came up with after slightly straighten it, sharpen a little and making it a bit brighter.
