Photographer's Note

I have taken this picture half an hour ago from my balcony at the backside of my house.
I awoke at a 2.30 AM, because someone in another house turned the volume up very high with the beautiful music of Mozart's Requiem, 'Quam olim Abrahae' to be exact.
It was quite a weird situation, and actually very strange AND very beautiful. That loud, beautiful music sounding in the peacefullness of the night.
Maybe that person was very drunk and/or very sad. Or just had a quarrel or something. or just felt like it, and forgot that it was that late.
But after that I could not sleep anymore, and decided to take this picture of the Erasmus bridge, to which I had been looking, while listening.
I just applied Unsharp Mask, and decided not to crop the other balconies and houses away. I hope the person if he/she needed it, has found comfort in that lonely hour of the night, listening to Mozart at the full volume for 5 minutes, before it was turned down. The whole situtation left me in a very peaceful mood, somehow, which fits this picture perfectly, IMO.
