A Night Off Season

A Night Off Season

I have to confess that todays image is my take of an image that I have seen somewhere, but I can’t for the life of me remember where.

This is a shot of the ice cream kiosk on the esplanade at West Bay at night.  I had wanted to include another light in the foreground, but this was giving quite a bit of lens flare, and quite frankly, I was too lazy to spend time cloning out the flare in the Gimp.

This was a 2.5 second exposure, and the awful colour cast produced by the streetlights was corrected using a manually selected white balance taken from the white wood fascia around the roof of the kiosk.

The drive down to West Bay and back to Bridport took far longer than setting up and taking the image.
