---------Photo-Spice---------- from Konstanz, Germany

Cool skyline!!! That's one of those things that we don't really have here in Konstanz, it being a pretty small (but pretty) town.


23 Feb 2010 8:50am

@---------Photo-Spice----------: Thank you : ) I love to travel to small towns when I get fed up of the city !

Yvon from Orleans, France

superbe vue de NY by night; mes tentatives de prises de vue nocturnes depuis l'E.S.building ont toujours échoué;
j'ai goûté plusieurs fois ces insectes grillés; rien d'extraordinaire, c'est le goût de l'huile de friture et des épices qui ressort; ça se mange bcp en Asie du SE, en Thailande notamment
bises et bonne journée, Céline

23 Feb 2010 9:40am

@Yvon: Merci : ) L'inconvenient, c'est qu'ils interdissent le tripod... Mais bon, il faut trouver d'autres formes d'appui ! Pas mal pour les insectes, il faudrait que je tente un jour !

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A very lovely image. I couldn't tell this was an HDR so, it's the perfect HDR to my mind. Those images that scream HDR aren't my favorites.

23 Feb 2010 6:27pm

@Steve Rice: Thank you : ) I guess it is about the strenght of tone mapping...

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Fantastic for a first HDR, did you use Photomatix and how many exposures?

23 Feb 2010 7:56pm

@Curly: Thank you : ) I did it with photomatix and I think it was 3 exposures (I threw a lot of 1 because they were blury) !

marc battault from clermont ferrand, France

une jolie vue de new york et de toutes ces lumieres !!
bises !

23 Feb 2010 8:21pm

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

smashing cityscape...great work!

23 Feb 2010 10:06pm

@Ted: Thank you : )

David from Detroit, United States

I really like this HDR. They so often have that annoying lightness around dark edges. This one avoids that, and does exactly what HDR is supposed to do-- extend the dynamic range. The balance between the window lights on the buildings and the blue of the evening sky is excellent. Nice job!

23 Feb 2010 10:24pm

@David: Thank you very much : ) I really appreciate it !

QUIM from Lisboa, Portugal

Superb view Céline!

23 Feb 2010 10:28pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful capture of this aerial skyline during the evening twilight! The amount of lights still on in the buildings adds that extra punch.

24 Feb 2010 12:29am

@Steven: Thank you : )

Charles Dastodd from Chicago, United States

Félicitations Céline, plutôt réussi pour un premier HDR ! Mais dis-moi, la photo d'avant-hier n'est-elle pas en HDR également ?

1 Mar 2010 4:08pm
