Light and shade Light and shade by Sudipto Sarkar is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. This is the first picture (possibly the only one I’ll upload here) I took after I got to Kolkata for an exam. The hydrogen lamp white balance is a good thing and I’d been trying to use it for quite some time. But this was probably the right moment. The contrast between the well lit and the not so well lit areas came up beautifully. The only drawback – the camera’s not an SLR and with the low light intensity, the shutter speed went to as long as a second which turned the man walking in the middle to a blur. EXIF Info Exposure f/2.7 1 sec ISO 100 Date taken 2011:01:14 19:15:07 Camera Canon PowerShot A1100 IS View Light and shade on flickr lightbox Spread the love Tweet Post navigation The past is a blurAngelic 29 Comments 🙂 Thank you everyone.. Reply amazing compo , light and colors , great work i love the atmosphere ! Reply wonderful capture! the blur has added to the mystery…! Reply Very mysterious and brooding – can you alter the ISO on your camera ? Reply @danou @magiceye 🙂 Thanks guys.. @AYearInMyGarden I can actually, but upto 400, the shutter was still 1 sec. And going above that would only make it grainy. So I stuck with 100.. Reply amazing atmosphere and mood thanks to the warm colours and the great light! if you hadn't pointed out the man i wouldn't even have noticed him! so, no harm done … ;-)) Reply It makes me thinkto the songa whiter shade of paleBien à toi ! Reply A picture perfect night. The truth is that I love night photography. I find it very warm and mysterious. A beautiful image that powerfully attracts the eye. Best regards, Adela Reply I like the lights and the moodhttp://krikis.aminus3.com Reply An interesting effect caused by the varying color of the light. The whiter light looks more "normal" to our eyes. Having recently spent two weeks in Hong Kong, I found a lot of florescent lighting which gave a green hue to images. Thank goodness for raw files. 🙂 Reply I really like the rust colors in this night shot. Reply Very nice composition. I like the colours contrast! Reply une ruelle sombre à l'ambiance intimiste. Reply I saw your question on my husbands blog http://www.mijou.com about the "blood". We used a fake-blood-energy-drink from http://www.coolstuff.se.
