Azay le Rideau horse 2012-08-09 222558

Let's stop with stairs for some times, this is part of a show I saw at Azay le Rideau castle. Very impressive indeed. "SONS ET LUMIERES" (sounds and lights) are frequent in Loire castles. This was someway different from the usual, a series of shows (circus-like) around the castle and its gardens. A lot of them were simply awesome: this was the final show (just before some light projections on the other side of the castle) in which a knight and his horse ran literaly on the water and their big shadow was projected on castle's wall.

 

Shot @ISO800 with 35mm fully open (f/1.8), single raw edited with Machinery HDR and noiseware. As you can see from the original shot, the horse was completely burned out and the castle's wall had few details. I recovered a lot of details, paying the price of some noise (you always have to pay a price ^__^).
