Sometimes the light is just amazing!
We spent two evenings in Strasbourg - which was a side trip from Paris for us, as we went to see their famous Christmas markets - and of course as usual my hope was to get a nice sunset one of those evenings. Luckily, it happened on the second night.
I headed out to wander around their area known as Petite France, which is the historic section of town and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's also incredibly photogenic.
The architecture there is mostly half-timbered buildings which I love (they remind me of Germany) and I find them quite fun to photograph. There are a number of canals in this area too, which gets me excited since I love photographing water.
All together I spent a couple of hours in this part of town that evening, as the sunset was just incredible and I fired away well into blue hour, before finally calling it quits.
This is a 3 exposure HDR created in Aurora HDR 2017 and then I also took it into Luminar where I made some edits to it and did some stylizing as well. If you haven't yet tried either of these products, I truly believe you are missing out on some amazing tools. I do all of my work in these two products and can't imagine life without them! ;-)
