Island in the Mur - Graz

The New York artist and designer Vito Acconci has made a spectacular new space above the river Mur on the basis of an idea by Robert Punkenhofer, himself a Graz man. In a shell form lies an amphitheatre and under a curvaceous dome, as the artist calls it, is a cafe. Conceived as a meeting place for young and old, it holds a cafe, an amphitheater and a playground. This town's landmark offers its whole beauty especially during darkness when it is illuminated with blue light.


I tried to enhance this effect by doing a DRI (dynamic range increase) by exposure blending. So three pictures where superimopsed. As it was one of my first trials I switched the aperture, now knowing that is makes of course more sense to keep it constant and change the time of exposure:
