Photographer's Note

Another night shot from Bourtzi Nafplio

This one is devoted to my dear friend and great photographer Anellise Anes.
Anes you told me you liked the star effect on my previous night shot, I hope you also like the colours in this one :)
Many kisses!

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

About the shot:
This photo has a foreground in addition to my previous shot.
The lines and the subjects of the boat floating, disturbing the calm reflection, is what I wanted to include firstly in this balanced frame.
All I needed was one second of calmness to achieve this, and I got lucky capturing it still, including the star lights which require high aperture value (however f/8 used thank to my SIGMA lens), and the lowest ISO for noiseless low light night condition.

This might be too dark for your taste, but those dark tones were selected on purpose to create an addition with the red/yellow colours.

The blue hour was gone in this shot, but I didn't cared much since some my previous shots and some others haven't missed a second from the place.

A Blue hour shot from Bourtzi will be posted soon these days.
