Manarola Night

August 2nd, 2013

Manarola is a small town, a frazione of the comune of Riomaggiore, in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northern Italy. It is the second smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists and probably the most photographed. During this night there were probably 20 tripods next to mine, and everybody waited for the perfect shot...

Nikon D800, Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED.

Photo Settings: 24mm, f/5, 20 seconds, ISO 50.

Map: 44.1075, 9.7258

Great colors and lights on the subject.
Fake clouds, and star ruins it.

Subject looks great, but yeah fake background spoils it.

With no fake background. But everything Dominic does always has something fake about it. That's his trademark.

Sorry to say but the background is not "fake". This image is a two layer composition that consists of the foreground (village & water) and the sky. The sky has been taken at the exact same position as the foreground just with the help of the Polarie Vixen, a device that equalizes the rotation of the earth. That's why the stars are super sharp and the clouds might seem "fake". The village has been exposed for about 20 seconds whereas the sky was a 4 1/2 minute exposure where I covered the bright village with a black carton and used the Polarie to get the maximum amount of stars. Those two images have then been merged together. Let me know via PM and I'll send you the before and after comparison.

The colourful light of the town and the small bay is really great. I also like that you privide GPS coordinates with your photos.

I totally understand why you made this a composition. But why isn't there any hint in the description. The description suggests you shot this with 20s exposure and breaking the laws of physics. In this context...

...the background is kind of "fake" - I have to agree with the first two comments - because it does not origin from those exposure settings. he gap between foreground and background exposure is to large in my opinion. It just does not fit properly.
