Making a nightscape capture of Radisson Blu Senator hotel in Lübeck is by far the most satisfying thing that I have done for the night. As the night fall comes in slowly into the lovely town of Lübeck, the darkness were filled with gorgeous lights from all the buildings around. The most prominent one from the river is the Radisson Blu Senator Hotel, from far, I can see the beautifully lighted hotel falling its back on the dark sky and reflecting its beauty on the still water. I can’t resist but grab as much compositions as I can as this is one hotel that I would love to stay in if I visit Lübeck again!
I was very lucky to have the moon in the right position and not blocked by the moving clouds in one of my shots which I have shown below. It took me quite a while before I can get the symmetrical composition that I want from this hotel. I have used photoshop to balance the exposure just by a little and I don’t see the need to adjust anything else as this is a prized possession that Lübeck has given me as a very beautiful and memorable present.
To me, I love the movements of the clouds with the moon as a companion that can give a little light to the sky as the background which compliments the stillness of the water with the hotel proudly standing as the main subject.
