Boston’s Christian Science reflecting pool and the city lights…
Camera: Canon 5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
Settings: 20 second Exposure @ f/5.6, 16mm Focal Length and ISO 200
I actually took 3 bracketed exposures for this shot, but threw out the -1 and 0 exposures. I liked +1 the best due to the sky having more motion to it. And it was not so overexposed in any area that I was unable to bring back the details in the highlights. After some initial treatment in Lightroom, the image was exported to Photoshop and I used some NIK Color EFX Pro to bring out the details and contrast. OnOne’s Perfect Effects was also used to give the night scene a bit of glow. Final adjustments were back in Lightroom, including a touch more clarity and a gradient filter placed roughly over the water to bring out the reflection a bit more.
