• Most stars can be seen here, but only in large and on black...
  • Unfortunately i don't know who this statue depicts. I've been searching the internet but didn't find anything... :-(
  • Many people were walking here. The long exposure time made them disappear :-)
  • Beginning of the fence, which went until the middle of the Charles bridge. That's why i didn't get any decent shot from the bridge itself.
  • The shadow of the statue looks a bit strange, as if it's only the shadow of the base. Maybe it's a statue of Lord Dracula? ;-)
  • The light was a bit too bright here, so i had to blend it with another exposure (So it wasn't 2 exposures, but more like 2 and 1/8 ;-))
  • Loved how those statues looked in front of the sky

Under A Starry Sky

View On Black - to see the stars.

Technique/Processing

Two exposures (one shorter one longer) for the buildings and the statue. The exifs you see on flickr are for those shots.

The sky has been shot at ISO 3200 and f/2.8 to get as much stars as possible.

    Located in Old Town Prague, the Knight of the Cross Square (Krizovnicke namesti) is at the east end of Charles Bridge. A statue of Charles IV, the Church of St. Francis Seraphicus, and the Church of the Holy Savior are notable sights on this Prague square.

    I'll take a guess on the statue in front. Could it be St (KIng) Wenceslaus?
