The Blue Hour by jViks The Blue Hour by jViks
I would normally avoid having city lights in a landscape, but I simply loved how they complemented the scene ... This place in Norway is amazing - the sun takes quite a while to set, and the blue hour just after it set is magical. The winds calm, landscape slowly getting into its dark blue coat... I could watch this for hours!

Technical info:
Camera: Canon EOS 7D
Lens: Samyang 14mm f/2.8
Speed: 2s
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 100

i'd usually also avoid artificial lights, but in this case they really bring up the atmosphere. as for the foreground, it's discutable - could go with or without - in this case with it there's a nice circle rounding up the photo. all in all, wonderful shot of a beautiful place :)

Heey, that's a great reflection you've got there!

Just a small suggestion though, don't you think the photograph might've been better without the foreground interefering with the water?

It certainly would ... I actually tried many different places from where to photograph this scene, but I couldn't find one where those trees wouldn't get in the way :/
I have a panoramic crop of the same image as well, which works better, but I think (crazy, I know) that cropping is cheating (because I was stupid enough not to make a real panorama right away), so I rather chose this version...

Ah, I don't think cropping is really cheating.

For example, if there really is some sort of lightpole or electric cable on the very right of your picture, you know it will disturb the image. Cropping it out of your actual picture is simply a good option and you didn't mess with 'how' you took the picture, just the size of it. :p
