Sautillante, Strasbourg, February 2013. I take the smile of her parents as an authorization to publish. Plus I had been freezing for so long, waiting for someone to show-up, that I couldn’t resist shooting this little girl jumping around. I realize that, for nocturne street photography, the 35mm has an edge over the 50mm because of its greater depth of field. It’s easier to have your subject in focus, even when it’s moving. This one is taken at f2, 1/30 sec and iso 1000 and I don’t think it could be “that” focused with a 50mm.

A shot I edited out because I had a better one. I give it another chance to keep on working on my color editing skills.

Among towers, Strasbourg, January 2013.
As some of you may have noticed, I’m working on a new “lightroom recipe” for my color night shots. I’ve tried real life tungsten-orange cast first, but I wasn’t convinced. So I’m now trying to figure out something more “urban”.
I’m rather pleased with the first results: they convey the sense of bizarre and the eerie mood I was looking after in my black and white series. And they are definitely colder and darker than the yellow-orange tones given by tungsten city lights.
And you, what do you think?
