«HDR» or not — most important thing is color harmony and good use of contrast. This image is obviously multi-exposure, and maybe it is even tonemapped (more likely «tone-compressed» or manually blended), but beautiful thing about it is that it’s very pleasant for eyes — due to nice complementary colors balance of orange and blue, wonderfully placed contrast accents using street lights. Yummy, very «photographic» reflections at the bottom add to the visual feast — and slightly asymmetrical composition with tower leaning to the right finishes very cool photo.
It’s not matter of tools which you use — it’s matter of good taste which you either possess or not. Relying on tool too much makes you very blind and ignorant to the simpler and deeper things which can make image great, like this one. Using tool for valid purpose on other hand often gives you good edge.
Fantastic job, +Elia Locardi
! ^_^ Simple one, but has a lot of elements which can serve as explanation what makes even simple photo good.
The Dubrovnik Stradun And The Old City
The Stradun (placa)
is the limestone-paved pedestrian street that runs through the old stone city of Dubrovnik. That’s funny because the whole time I was there I thought it was a marble street but Wikipedia
says it’s limestone. So, thank you Wiki, once again you’ve crushed my dreams… Maybe I’ll just make a little adjustment, and, boom. Now it’s marble. 🙂 Man I love me some user generated content. (I’m kidding of course 😉
Also, I know that I’ve been posting a lot of photos from Dubrovnik lately but I just can’t help it. I fell in love with that place, I really did. There was something special about it — something about the way I felt living inside the old city and being so close to the Adriatic Sea. I felt very at home. Even while writing this, my ADHD infected mind forced my fingers to ALT/TAB over to the interweb and research apartment prices for a return visit. Even if I don’t get back there soon. I really want to make it a priority to get back there in the future.
