Against my ruins by EricForFriends Against my ruins by EricForFriends
Arezzo, Tuscany: this was just about the last shot of my holiday. We returned from our three-course meal but she was still at work.

Paintshop Pro XII, conversion from RAW. This one's from the heart.

Fullview strongly advised. Thank you.

From my Tuscany book: [link] :reading:

Good work, Eric. I do not do well at night shots...

In retrospect, 1/12 without a tripod or support = madness...! :fear: P-mode for the win... :blush:
During my stay there, I got hooked on shooting all the neon-lit spaces that they have, but I love shooting at night anyway. It's not that hard, and if everything fits - just that little bit of extra light that you need, something to lean to, remembering to lock down ISO :slow: - there's tons of mood.

Of all my Street shots, I love this one very much. :cuddle: Perhaps because of all the books.

No shake at 1/12 is unnatural :paranoid: I celebrate getting anything at 1/30... 1/15 means a ticker tape parade :P I have a couple of recent night shots that look like they might have worked... at last!

Okay, okay, I'd come to Dublin for a tickertape parade. :rofl: It's not that I'm like a kind of snob or so. Oh, not another of those tickertape parades... Is it Friday already? :icondivaplz:

If you don't have an up-to-date inventory, you might as well give it all away ... I feel for her fingers and blurring eyes.

:nod: Yes, and it all looked so lonely. With that weather, there weren't many people in the street, and she was out there with all that work. :(
