Photographer's Note

Nafplio (Ναύπλιο)is a beautiful seaport town that was the capital of Greece from 1829 to 1834. Most of the old town is on a peninsula jutting into the Argolic Gulf in the northeast Peloponnese; this peninsula forms a naturally protected bay that is enhanced by the addition of man-made moles. The area surrounding Nafplio has been inhabited since ancient times though little sign of this remains within the town. The town has been a stronghold at several times in history. Nafplion is a port, with fishing and transport ongoing, although the primary source of local employment currently is tourism. (info from Wikipedia)

my fisheye and I noticed this photo opportunity while walking in the streets of the old town but realized that the reflections on the Mercedes were much darker than the rest of the scene to render both of them properly with a single shot. so I took 3 shots of the scene @ EV 0,-2,+2 which I later tonemapped in Photomatix to get a more balanced result that is closer to the situation I experienced.

thank you
