Hot days – lively nights

When the days are too hot, life changes to the night. After a buzzing 37°C day, the Camplin, Krk’s main plaza, was buzzing even at 11:00 in the night. I took out my venerable 1,7/50mm lens, and did I praise the Anti-Shake in the camera already? So that photographing lady’s pose got fixed in 1/8th of a second, quite unthinkable in film times.

Hot days - lively nights(2) Mixed light situations are usually meant as a mix of natural and tungsten light. Not so to the right: the modern, energy saving street lights gave a light that was almost purely yellow and even manual white balance or postprocessing tricks cannot make a normal lighting out of this. But leaving it yellow and balancing it with the tungsten light of a gallery makes it interesting (for me) again
