Lights in Alingsås

Every year in October, the town I grew up in throws a frenzy of lights around town. Artists are invited to create amazing colors and patterns. This particular installation uses light-wires hanging over "Lillån". Some passing cars gave some extra light trails to this 2 min shot.

 

The shot data:

213 sec, f18, ISO100

 

Treatment:

- Basic and minor adjustments in DPC (canon raw editor)

- Some layer magic in GIMP: Soft light and burn while blurring a bit.

- GMIC plugin in GIMP: Local normalization for the trees.

- No HDR

The result ended up not far from the original.
