Photographer's Note

Still in Nafplio, Bourtzi is the primary photographic target for I shall post many different versions of it, higher lower, different angles, different hours, just to tell you that a subject may have many faces.

Information about Nafplio you will find here.

About the shot - PP notes:
Okay, I found my spot in the harbor and I set my tripod, No first subject no background subject,
All I wanted was a simple capture looking like this.

Sometimes you may include only one subject in your photo, without foreground and background.
The way you put it, the lighting and the colour can give life to the subject, lead the eye and make it interesting.
This photo is completely against the rules, (horizon not in 1/3 or 2/3, subject centered, false colours) SO what!!!

All I needed in this one was the star effect created with f/16, smooth water and reflection of the lamp created with 15 seconds of exposure, and of course my RAW post processing program, where I enhanced the magentas and the overall saturation.

My SIGMA 70-300mm APO Tele or zoom Lens was used for two reasons.
- 1st, for the 70mm focal range
- 2nd for the 18 star beams which my 18-55 EF-S is not capable of.

No Polarizer, ND8 or UV filters used, those are useless during the night in such cases.

Thanks for viewing!
