Rozenhoedkaai is one of the most photographed spots in Brugge. Buildings and trees around canal are very nicely lit at night. Right in the middle 83 meters tall Belfort can be seen.
The photo was taken after sunset at 20:21. Yesterday I have posted another photo taken 24 minutes earlier from almost the same spot.
ISO-200, lens zoomed to 13mm, Av mode with +0.3 EV exposure compensation.
The same RAW file was converted twice with -0,1 EV (to have most of the scene correctly exposed) and -2.1 EV exposure compensation ( to have the Belfort and parts of some other buildings correctly exposed ). Later both images were combined using technique explained here.

I can well understand why this place is photographed so much. Great reflections and good colors, though the blurry part in the bottom bothers me a bit.

The POV of this one compared to your previous post is definitively the better. The exposure spoils the light and color conditions very favourably.

No wonder it is so eagerly photographed - it's just beautiful. And superbly shot, claps, claps!
There's some tiny blue area in the sky still.

This is a great night shot. Your lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness. The reflection is amazing with excellent depth. The blue in the sky add a lot to the photo. You handled the long exposure perfectly.

Hello Linas, even though this is one of the most photographed spots in Brugge, it is still a pleasure to see it. It is very magical and bit mysterious place when photograph during night. I maybe like bit more the colors of your previous post, but this one has better location. Both are however well done. Lucie
