The Lightship

Posted by
Albert (Sweden, living in Mechelen, Belgium) on 25 March 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Das Feuerschiff (the lightship) in the Hamburg harbour is a restaurant and a hotel. The boat and the bridge and the place were I was standing were floating on the water and it was a bit windy. Thus, the low F and high ISO, but still some motion effects on e.g. the lamps. Multiexposure HDR.

I'm not very active with the photography at the moment. I'm busy with work and other things. This is a shot from last weekend. I hope to come back with more soon.

This is very nice work, especially with the wind, rolling water, and people in the cabin moving. Worth the effort to get this result.

This one is awesome! The lighting and processing are great, and all the different lines leading your eye around through the frame. What did you do as far as processing on this one?

@PD: Thanks PD! It is a multiexposure HDR, where I after the tonemapping "masked in" one of the original exposures to get the sky ok. The sky was too processed and ugly in the HDR version. If I remember correct, I also took the flags from the original shot. Then the usual contrast and saturation adjustment.
