breaking the rules - does it work?
« on: March 28, 2007, 08:17:05 AM »

Hi,

Here is a long exposure on a park at night. It was impossible to have all the photo well exopsed, too much differences on light but I like the result either way. Do you think it works?

It does for me. One thing that makes night photographs interesting is the sense of mystery you get from dark areas with no detail. If this were all "well-exposed", it would not be nearly as interesting. I also like the color contrast between the warm, central area and the cool light in the lower right corner.

Nice!

Thanks

The only thing that bothered me is the clipped area on the lamp, but I like it now. The cool light on the corner was made with the flash, during the exposure I runned with the flash on hand and shoot it in manual mode. I was lucky because it was the last shot before the battery was gone

Ditto. Sure, it breaks some rules. But this is one case where rule-breaking works. Nice shot.

This is pretty cool, though I would say that it is exposed perfectly! Looks like a giant wand - kind of like ET's finger!
