ENGLISH: I dedicate this photo to our friend Rino (Rhinos59) a Napoletano who is new to TE. Rino is from Sorrento, arguably the most beautiful place in all of Naples. So I dedicate a photo to him of the second most beautiful place in Naples, and my "happy place".
I previously uploaded a wider angle of this scene, which is taken from the port of La Corricella on the Isle of Procida.
ITALIANO: Dedico questa foto al nostro amico Rino (Rhinos59), un vero Napoletano che viene da Surriento. Secondo mi, Surriento e'il luogo piu' bello di Napoli. Questa foto e' delísola di Procida, il luogo secondo piu' bello di Napoli.
Questa foto e' stata presa dalla Marina Corricella.

Ciao carissima Lisù
anche secondo me Sorrento è il luogo più bello di Napoli, dopo Napoli ovviamente :)
Bellissima questa foto di Procida.
I toni blu (tipici del tuo stile), in contrasto con i toni dorati delle luci calde, mi riportano ad una tua foto di Lipari che gli somiglia.

A delightful 'blue hour' shot which emphasises the golden lights of the harbour and contrasts them with the blues and purples of the night.
You have good lead lines, a strong sense of depth andinteresting shimmering reflections in the water.
Have a good day,
jjcordier (62280) 2012-02-22 5:11
Très jolie photo de nuit de ce port napolitain avec un fort contraste de tons chauds et froids du plus bel effet.
photoray (4926) 2012-02-22 5:12
A very impressive night view for the positioning to display the harbor and lit waterfront, all in gold and blues, excellent.
It should get crazy in Naples with the Americas Cup Races - April 7 thru the 15th. Especially those Kiwis......
Stay healthy and have fun,

This blue hour picture is very good and shows a fine technique. The point of view is perfect and the city lighting is not to strong compare to the blue water.
Have a nice day
sevy (13269) 2012-02-22 5:50
You have a nice collection of shots from the shores near Napoli. Here, I like the golden tones from the town opposed to the deep blue of the sea. Bonus, the shape of the volcano in background.
Usually I am more in favor of wide view, but here I wonder if this one is not better.
williewhistler (7257) 2012-02-22 6:22
Hello Lisa,I imagine that you had quite a job getting the exposure just right on this shot,too long and the lights on the quayside would have been over bright,not long enough and end up with black blotches every where,as it is there is a lovely contrast between the luminous blue sea and the golden buildings and of course the fabulous pink evening sky over the buildings and the volcano tops it all of very nicely.
A very fine shot.
Best wishes from a dull West Country,
nobuikehonda (3846) 2012-02-22 7:00
Ciao ma chère Lisuzza-san!
This is truly a beautiful dedication to your friend. The very rich golden colour of the port far to the right, and the equally beautiful blue tone for the rest of the image, and the distant view are absolutely magnificent. The slight movement of the water surface is very poetically captured. The smooth and the gentle movement of the water adds another dimension to the already well-activated image. He must be very happy with this outstanding image. TFS
With my very best and kind regards,
Have a very nice evening, Lisuzza-san
mkamionka (24477) 2012-02-22 7:01
I remember you showing this or very similar place before but I cannot believe that you were keeping this one so long a secret. This is really a jaw-dropper. Masterwork of the blue (or pink) hour. You have included several different areas here, each one has its own color temperature and color range and yet they are all perfectly balanced with each other. My favorite is probably the silhouette of the mountain, or the promenade dotted with the elegantly star shaped lights.
Very atmospheric, no words to give it a justice.
Thank you for sharing it!
annjackman (13183) 2012-02-22 7:22
A part of the world that I also love although I have only been twice. Your picture captures the blue hour in a magical way. The illuminated buildings are super and we can see lots of detail. Excellent work.
Kind Regards, ann
SnapRJW (18690) 2012-02-22 7:43
Hello Lisa - The effect of your SS on the deep blue water is really lovely, some still while the FG area is full of movement, even the gentle movement of the boats has resulted in some being sharp and others softly blurred and I like that. The golden lights add a perfect colour burst. Your evening shots are always so beautifully controlled, this one is no exception. Take care and warm regards rosemary
jusninasirun (17136) 2012-02-22 7:45
Shot like this just breaks my heart :-)
This is gorgeous with warm and cooler tone on the left. A beautiful dedication and the lavender sky is truly amazing. Well done and kind regards,
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2012-02-22 7:53
A superb blue hour shot with glittering golden colors of the port.. Beautiful pinkish sky at the time of sunset. I don't see that much of disturbance in the water. The boats are laid to rest till the next day keeping the waters calm. Magnificent view of the silhouetted buildings in the back. Great composition with colors, sharpness and depth.
BennyV (12747) 2012-02-22 8:22
Bright yellow and blue with the landscape like a silhouette backdrop. Picturesque scene, well fosicked.

bellissimi colori e contrasto. Questa foto la stamperei in plexiglass, retroilluminata per farne un quadro!
Benvenuto al tuo amico...
Ciao buona giornata
bayno (16149) 2012-02-22 9:27
ma nonn sei tu che hai scattato questa foto...è il tuo avatar quello che esce fuori appena metti la Camera sul trepiedi, sarà contentissimo Rino di questa dedica, la foto è stupenda con una esposizione perfetta, diaframma chiuso e massima profondità, bellissimi i colori e le luci come stelline, sempre bella procida,
un abbraccio, Valter
yquem46 (32229) 2012-02-22 10:07
I remember the wider view and also that it was a great picture and a big success
No doubt that this one is on the same tracks
very well done and top notch quality
All the best
rhinos59 (610) 2012-02-22 10:20
...what to say....first of all I'm honoured of this dedication!...I have never been to Procida(shame on me living so close to it!) so this is for me an occasion to admire the beauty that surrounds us!..Great picture,love the blue's colors and the water reflex!
...Ciao Lisa e ancora grazie!
sacimar (25957) 2012-02-22 11:21
good view of this place at blue hour, I like the light management and the water effect, composition is interesting,
Jeppo (17623) 2012-02-22 12:32
che bella cartolina di procida. ottima gestione della luce e toni dorati.
bebbetto (12) 2012-02-22 14:06
Ci sono così tante cose belle in questa foto che non so da dove cominciare.
Blue hour, lampade a stellina, grande equilibrio di luci e colori affascinanti.
La posa lunga offre sempre scatti emozionanti.
emka (58078) 2012-02-22 14:36
Ciao cara Lisa,
lucky guy Rino to get such a wonderful photo with dedication from you. amazing night shot. Gorgeous colours, pink, gold and deep blue. Spectacular composition. I would like to see Surriento and Napoli one day. When you will go there somewhen, I will go too :).
tyro (13043) 2012-02-22 14:38
Whoa! This is a beauty! And you've been sitting on this treasure for over a year! Lucky Rino - he'll be well chuffed!
As well as "architecture", this must also be "decisive moment" because you have caught the light at just the right time. The blue of the sea is just magical, especially in contrast with the yellow of the artificial lights of the seafront. The reflections are stunning too but what I really love are the contrasts between the two areas of water - one mirror smooth, the other just ever so slightly ruffled by the breeze.
Excellent exposure with your long shutter opening (!), beautiful colours and contrasts and stunning sharpness. Perfect composition too.
Gigidusud (8000) 2012-02-22 14:47
Ciao carissima Lisa,
Fantastica foto notturna con luce stupendo!Mi piace molto Sorrento e la costa Amalfitana!
Grazie per la condivizione.
divail (7211) 2012-02-22 17:05
C'est une superbe composition, où la lumière est particulièrement belle avec toutes ces petites étoiles jaunes. La couleur de la mer aussi est magnifique.
cargus (6434) 2012-02-22 21:59
Spectaculaire composition, de belles couleurs, bien encadré et rendu, image bien fait.!!
ChrisJ (86818) 2012-02-22 23:32
Love the repetition of the yellow stars from the artificial lights at right. A superb blue hour where the yellow illumination contrasts starkly against the indigo sky. Naples never looked so lovely! Tfs!
dkmurphys (36737) 2012-02-23 1:03
Same lovely calm atmosphere at the blue houe. Great management of lights and nice effect. Italy is the best!
Have a nice evening.

thanks from you for visit gallerys my frinds.

Impresive colors indeed. very brilliant and sharp picture. very good scene I like it. tfs
mauro61 (52527) 2012-02-23 2:09
un vero capolavoro, amica mia.
Magico contrasto di luci con un POV dall'alto spettacolare.
Definizione che mette in mostra i tanti particolari di questa immagine di grande qualità,
danyy (0) 2012-02-23 2:21
une belle palette de teintes bien saturées, dans des lumières crépusculaires très bien maîtrisées. J'aime particulièrement le dégradé dans le ciel.
Le POV et le cadrage sont astucieusement pensés.
timecapturer (30256) 2012-02-23 3:26
a stunner! A blue and pink hour shot all rolled into one and so irresistable. The light and clarity are beautifiul and the overall effect so glorious. Amazing!
ikeharel (37254) 2012-02-23 9:05
I must admire how you mastered this: an illuminted part of town, with reflection on water, sillhouette hill and houses on far, and fabulous blue bay with boats in foreground. N
otable wind on the surface on lower part, maybe 20sec. exp. would be the reason.
Lovely night on fantastic place,
ktanska (21499) 2012-02-23 11:09
Golden star shaped lights and deep blue sea on a long exposure. Here you show your favourite theme at it's best. Longer exposure shows nicely how a bit of wind catches on the water surface.
ciakgiak (30329) 2012-02-23 13:11
Spettacolo puro, una notturna che non smetterei mare di ammirare, il blu della superficie dell'acqua è veramente incredibile.
Un caro abbraccio
mesutilgim (67914) 2012-02-23 13:46
Very nice nocturnal capture with perfect pov and perfect light management..
Very nice reflections
TFS and best regards
mohammad_H (6576) 2012-02-23 23:48
Very nice at night with lights reflected in water in boats and light houses very, very beautiful mountain horizon with color and light, good luck, wish you'd patented
macjake (39207) 2012-02-24 3:36
yes, how could i forget such a place, i remember this photo well. If i'm not mistaken, you also have a photo or two from the streets on the right.
love how the blue sky is always reflected onto the water below, and how the F/14 creates that nice star effect on the lights.
very attractive set of colors.
I have itchy feet too :)

نمای خوب از شب
stefanocer (10640) 2012-02-24 6:38
Impressive bluhour shoot I like very much place composition and light management compliments
brianmcc (5536) 2012-02-24 7:39
the richness of the colours in this picture just jump out at the viewer, especially the wonderful blue tones in the water which are totally stunning. the long exposure has created that sense of movement which is evident in the blur of the boats and adds to the overall impression of the image. the lighter colours of the setting sun behind the land on the horizon are superb. the whole scene is beautiful and your picture conveys that perfectly.
have a good weekend,
Silvio1953 (98051) 2012-02-25 5:17
Ciao Lisa, magica vista del porticciolo di Procida, fantastico il blu del mare, spklendida esposizione, atmosfera da sogno, bravissima, buon week end, un caro abbraccio Silvio
tatadalou (3247) 2012-02-25 13:05
Nice view of Procida, at blue hour, which gives a beautiful duotone. The exposure is well chosen, and the depth of field is excellent.
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4435) 2012-02-25 17:43
It's been a week I guess since I last visited TE, seems that I missed a lot such as this!
I remember seeing this one in FB. Boy, it was a hell week! Anyway, I guess you stood on the perfect POV thus giving us an exquisite view of this town. The colors, tones are superbly exposed, the yellow and blue create a good color combination! What's amazing really is that dark blue tones on the waters, is that the effect of the wind? It looks surreal!! Very nice! Excellent capture! As usual! Keep it coming!
literally "warm "regards from Manila,
Angshu (51174) 2012-02-26 3:06
Hello dear Lisa
A fantastic night shot with the exposure ever so correct! The narrow aperture you used, created star effect on the lights. Good warm-cold colour contrast which makes this beautiful. Fine pastel hues in the sky & the silhouettes looks great!
COSTANTINO (42744) 2012-03-03 23:44
the best blue hour for the best shot
excellent chosen point of view in gold
with the boats in a good perspective
amazing blue sea in a peaceful
atmosphere,great work for a
first shot quality
