Photographer's Note

One more blue hour photo from Lubeck. This time the spire of St Petri church. The interesting fact about this church is that you can climb to its tower for a stunning view of the old town. I have showed two views from that tower taken in the blue hour before.
This photo has much more typical blue hour color of the sky than the two previous ones which I presented, although still slightly purplish. Over time I learned that the color other than blue, usually more turning into purple, is due to the cloudy sky and different temperature reading of the camera. Of course, if you record the raw file, you can convert the color changing the white balance setting to the more blue version. However, I also realised that this purple touch is often very natural, and it often gives photos a nice ambiance. These days sometimes I keep it and sometimes I change it, whatever suits best. The old photos which I show here though were recorded just as jpg files so I don’t have the luxury of playing around. I am still quite happy with them though.
