A view of Toulon and some personal news

Morning light on Toulon

This image is a little more than one year old and she waited until today to be processed. That's not my usual workflow but sometimes i like to keep the raw images untouched, look at them from time to time and one day process them.

Now an important thing : In 2 weeks we are going to leave Provence and go to live in the Alps. I won't explain all the reasons here but that's an old project and we are very happy (and busy) with that.
So this post is probably the last one here before a while. Until July 24 i'll keep my current DSL connection here but i'm not sure to find some time for another post. We will arrive in the new house on July 25 but nobody really knows when my new connection will be up. I can hope it won't take more than 10 days ...

Clouds over Toulon - HDR seascape or HDR skyscape

That's always the same story : Today was supposed to be a sunny day and i expected a beautiful pink daw on the buildings you can devine on the right of this image. So i jumped out of my bed at 5 am, prepared a big little coffee and drove to Toulon where i arrived at dawn. Light was really not as expected :) I decided to wait some hours walking on the beaches and at around 9 am (i guess) the sun said a little hello threw the clouds in my back. As this kind of sky can always be interesting for HDR works i rapidly shot 3 exposures and after that one more with a soft GND filter.

The one you can see above is the result of my HDR work and i have to say that it was a real pleasure to process. I'll show you the flitred one in the following days.

Blue hour on the Mediterranean sea

Blue hour over the Mediterranean sea- Toulon
Blue hour over the Mediterranean sea - Toulon

Toulon is the most important town of my region. It's a military place from centuries and the pier is always full of war ships. We don't go there very often but this week end some friends came to visit us from Corsica. On sunday evening they came back to their home in their island of beauty and so we had to bring them to Toulon so that they could take the boat. We arrived a little too soon and walked along the sea while waiting for boat time. That's during this little promenade that i had the idea of this image.
So today i left the office at the end of the afternoon and drove to Toulon with my camera. This shot was done around 7 pm and the exposure was around 200 seconds. Colors are natural and totaly unprocessed.
