A failed attempt at a Nusszopf. Looked best before baking, there’s a reason that there’s no after shot.

Dailies – CDLIII

Just a short one today, to get the blog rolling again… with a Kitsch overload: Heidelberg’s Schlossbeleuchtung. Happens thrice per year, so after 11 years at Heidelberg this isn’t exactly something I hadn’t shot yet. But from time to time it’s nice to revisit these motives. Actually, I just needed to get out of my flat that night, fleeing from the noise of a street festival just under my balcony (yes, the fireworks were less annoying).

My best shot of the Schlossbeleuchtung yet, shot with the Nikon D800 at 20 seconds, ISO 100, F5.6. These kind of shots are quite difficult to time, knowing what to expect helps a lot. And they are quite tricky to process, mostly due to the quite monochromatic light of the fireworks, dominating the scene. That night however, the nearly full moon helped a lot to light the surrounding quite a bit. A glimpse behind the curtain, for an impression how much Lightroom processing went into this shot…

…here’s the original, unprocessed RAW file, only the exposure was pulled up 1.56EV (I do shoot these very much underexposed, or rather exposed for the fireworks, to minimise the amount of blown highlights, which are most difficult to recover).
