Picture Story

My wife and I were touring old towns and city neighborhoods in western Europe when we came to Strasbourg, France. We walked around Strasbourg during the day, and I took photos as we toured the old sections of town. While we were walking, I also scouted locations for night photographs, including this viewpoint. During the blue hour I came back and shot a series of photographs of this scene, varying the shutter speed and exposure to see which settings best captured the reflections and colors in the sky and under the street lights. I settled on a 6 second exposure to best capture the reflections.
