Fade To The Stars

I have published the landscape version of this photo before. I figured why not publish the portrait version. You get a whole different perspective of the image.

The image shifts all over the place color wise. You go from the black water to the bright bridge light reflecting off it. Then you have the bridge itself and the buildings in the distant. They all twinkle like stars at night. However, there are real stars visible. That isn’t noise in the sky, those are┬áreal planets or stars. Rare that I would have captured that with so much ambient light bleeding into the night sky but I got lucky I guess.

This is a straight up standard edit. Nothing fancy going on. No masking or layers to enhance the photo. I just put the contrast in via a curves adjustment then some local dodging and burning. I did desaturate the water where the lights reflected. It was a bit too much. Hit save and done.

Very nice night photo. I like the light shimmering in the water with a gold tone. The sky with its first star of the night shining bright so all may make a wish! It is nice to see in detail, all your eyes quickly glance pass in our daily life. Photography captures the beauty around us; we just do think about or focus on each day. I truly enjoy the journey each day.
