Trakai, Lithuania view map

Trakai Island Castle
at night. The castle was built in 14th century on an island in lake Galve. It's probably the biggest castle in Lithuania. Bridge seen in the photo is the only entrance to the castle.
Taken at 20:46. As the wooden bridge was slight shaking from people walking on it, it was not easy to get sharp photos with very long exposure. This one is the best of the few photos I took on the bridge.
Camera settings: 26 mm zoom, AV mode, ISO-400, +0.7 EV exposure compensation, mirror lockup + self timer
The same Raw file was converted twice with +0.2 (for most of the scene) and -1.4 (for brightly lit parts) exposure adjustment and merged into one final image. Color temperature was set to 3900K for both conversions.

other sizes: small medium original auto
