Another small break from my Australian photos.
it is the view of the tower of Torun City Hall and a monument of the most eminent of its inhabitants, Nicolaus Copernicus.
Nicolaus Copernicus (Mikołaj Kopernik) was born on 19 February 1473 in the city of Toruń (Thorn). His father was a merchant from Kraków and his mother was the daughter of a wealthy Toruń merchant.
He was a Renaissance mathematician and astronomer who formulated a heliocentric model of the universe which placed the Sun, rather than the Earth, at the center.[
The publication of Copernicus' book, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), just before his death in 1543, is considered a major event in the history of science. It began the Copernican Revolution and contributed importantly to the scientific revolution.
Copernicus had a doctorate in canon law and, though without degrees, was a physician, polyglot, classics scholar, translator, governor, diplomat, and economist who in 1517 set down a quantity theory of money, a principal concept in economics to the present day, and formulated a version of Gresham's Law in the year 1519, before Gresham. (after Wikipedia)
Did I use here a tripod? Yes, yes, yes! I took my tripod from Warsaw! I planned to do some morning shots but then I realized that in June it means 4 a.m. I suppose it wouldn't be a good idea to walk around the city alone so early. So I made some blue hour shots. It was late in the evening, after 10 p.m. but still there were a lot of people on the market Square in beautiful warm evening.

Surprised indeed to see a picture much closer to home ;-)
Nice nocturnal shot with the exposure well done. The artificially lit up buildings and statue looks good against the late blue hour sky

L'heure bleue est quelque peu passée mais la composition de l'image est superbe. La gestion de la lumière est impeccable même si les lampadaires rendent les choses très difficiles.

Portret kobiety wykonany przez kobietę, a poważniej dobrze pokazane umiejscowienie astronoma w otoczeniu torunskiej starówki.
Oczywiście na plus dokładna notka

Great monuments, which show us this time so special, perfect the charm of the towers and monuments in the colors of the night lighting.

Des couleurs chaudes pour ces bâtiments contrastant avec le bleu nuit du ciel. Une jolie réussite.
