Photographer's Note

This Blue hour is the last of the closeup Bourtzi series taken from Nafplio harbor.

Information about Nafplio you will find here.
All my shots from Nafplio day/night are here.
All my Night shots are here.

About the shot:
Not much to tell, the smooth calm water and reflections was captured by 30 sec of long exposure, the star lamps made by f/16 aperture value, the time was specific, as I was catching the last breath of the day.
Canon 18-55 EF-S lens used at 55mm wide. This lens creates only 6 star beams while my SIGMA 70-300 creates 18 beams.
Star effects can be created when aperture is higher than f/16 (might be done also at f/8 or higher depending on the lens)

RAW Post Processing Notes:
- Some HUE / White Balance issues
- Saturation increasement
- Some sharpness if I am not mistaken
- Frame added
- Title added
- JPEG optimized up to 200kb for TE use!

Thanks for viewing!
