Há dias em que se acorda de manhã e apesar de ainda estar escuro lá fora, já se tem a sensação de que as fotos vão ser óptimas hoje. Este foi um dia em que me encontrei mais ou menos a correr por Cracóvia para estar no Castelo Wawel a tempo. De alguma forma, as distâncias em lugares desconhecidos parecem sempre muito menores num mapa do que aquilo que realmente são.
Mas a corrida valeu a pena, eu cheguei mesmo a tempo. O Wawel, residência dos reis polacos durante tantos séculos, foi ainda iluminado e ofereceu, juntamente com as nuvens, uma cena de cortar a respiração. Montei o meu tripé na lama da margem do rio Vístula e quando terminei de filmar, as luzes apagaram-se. Acho que, uma vez mais, tive uma sorte incrível, mas da próxima vez prefiro acordar 10 minutos mais cedo.
Camera: Canon EOS 500D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm @ 18mm
Exposures: 3 (-2, 0, +2)
Exposure time (middle): 2s
Tripod: Manfrotto 190CXPRO4
Size: 13.4 MPx
Date: Taken in November 2013
Location: Riverbank of the Vistula, south-west of the Wawel Castle
Software: Lightroom 5.2, Photoshop CS6, Photomatix Pro
Workflow: Sometimes you have to get dirty to get a good shot. For this one I had to go down as much as possible what meant for me: Get down there in the mud of the Vistula riverbank.
I opened the aperture as much as possible and put the ISO to 400 to have an as short as possible exposure time. Only that way I could capture the clouds the way I wanted. As the Vistula was incredible calm, it was no problem to get a perfect reflection even with the short exposure.
The Wawel is part of the UNESCO World Heritage
The Wawel and the whole Historic Centre of Kraków are part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1978. Together they’ve been among the first 12 inscribed World Heritage Sites.
