Photo by Jean-Baptiste Hétier

Czech Republic, Prague Building People Story Transportation


I thought Prague somehow looked like a scale model. I looked for tilt-shift opportunities but really couldn't find any (I only spent a couple of hours there). I decided to go with an underexposed picture, taking advantage of the very bright sky that day. The end-result somehow has the unreal look I was after but I'm not quite satisfied with the picture and I don't know why.

  • Except for the sky and the traffic light, there doesn't seem to be any light in the picture. The underexposure added to that makes the colors flat and grayish. This might have been a good candidate for a HDR shot, but then you were looking for a specific outcome which this would probably not have accomplished.
    It could also be something missing in the composition, but I can't really say what... maybe if there was something in the lower left corner...
    Not sure I'm being very helpful here...

  • J'aime beaucoup cette série de photos sur Prague et surtout le traitement qui fait ressortir tous les détails. Je trouve dommage le bruit présent sur le dos des hommes en bas à droite et sur le rouge du tramway.

  • Yeah ithryn, I agree that HDR would have been a very good idea hear. I didn't think about.

    Merci Laurent et sandro. Oui, y'a pas mal de bruit. J'aurais probablement dû travailler le canal rouge de la photo.
