Getting the picture

In the spring I posted about missing the picture, now finally posting about GETTING the picture.

Garching 1100 years – Light cubes sculptures (photo: Cris da Rocha)

For the 1100 anniversary of Garching, the city I live close to Munich, the city is making a big, year long, series of events and one of them is sculpture with Light Cubes in different places of the city. It started with the big light cube in the opening event, the one I ended up missing in the spring, and it changed in time.

Mid fall, the sculpture was the formation you can see in the image above. The Halloween sunset had a nice blue light (the sunset missed the “burning clouds”) and I had the chance to wander around with my tripod. Also the place was quite calm, despite being beside one of the main city squares, together with the long exposures, people in the scene was not an issue.

The original idea was to “HDR it to death”, but processing the “properly” exposed (0EV – evaluative meter centered in the cubes), with Lightroom edits, gave the proper mood and light ratio between the sky, the shadowy middle-ground and the cubes.

This time, I’ve got the shot, apparently 🙂
