[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in the Prazeres Cemetary, after a special visit organized by the city hall.
I was caught by surprise when the guide told us we would get a rare opportunity to take shots from this viewpoint rarely accessible to the public. From there we could see the 25th of April Bridge and the Christ King.

Do not think I did a good job. Never did a night shot before. Tried to salvage as much I could trough Lightroom.

On PP: Lightroom, HSL mixer to remove unwanted colors, crop, burned the foreground bushed because the light was off, graduated filter to darken the sky that was lit by those awfull orange night ligths.

HI Lauro...nice evening shot...excellent focus and exposure control. Well done.


Hi Lauro

Not a bad result. You have captured some good detail and the exposure is also good. There is a purple dot on the right hand side, and the sky is a little noisy.

Olá Lauro,
Faça outras primeiras vezes porque os deuses ajudam nas primícias... :-}
Quem é bom pode fazer o que quiser em qualquer circunstância.

Not bad at all

salut lauro,
j'ai adoré cette atmosphere
une composition qui je peux regarder longuement

And you did a wonderful job with your fist nocturnal shot! Good choice for lens opening, I like using smaller opening for better details. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Lauro, not bad for a first attempt. You can even see the spotlights on the base of the statue.Fiona

Good first effort. Plenty of details and good sharpness. I like the inclusion of the curved road and the bridge in the bg. Well done
