    Congratulations Erno--Assignment #80: Blue Hour Photography

    I can not emphasize how hard you all made selecting finalists. My first cut I wanted 9 shots as finalists, then I got it to 7, then I went back through and it increased as the more I looked as some shots the more I appreciated them. But, a selection had to be made. Below are the 5 finalists for Assignment #80: Blue Hour Photography

    The description:

    The blue hour is the part of twilight before a sun rises or sets when predominately blue light makes it through the atmosphere. While being somewhat famous for its soft diffused light and color, it has also be used by artists as a "time of confusion and mystery" as the time that is neither night nor day. The topic for this assignment is to use this confusion, mystery, color and famously soft and even light as a key element of your image.

    The finalists:

    M_Six: Blue Hour at the County Fair



    Erno: Golden Gate Bridge with Moon, Fog, and Wind




    Neuroanatomist "L'Arc de Triomphe"




    CLS "Blue Hour at Burj Khalifa"




    Joel Eade "Blue Back Yard"



    The poll will be open for 5 days. Good luck to all the finalists.

    The last assignment, together with this one, reminded me of a favorite from long ago. I did not post-process then, so I tried now.

    On a trip to Arizona, we took the time in New Mexico to get a Blue Hour shot for the assignment. Later the number of stars in the sky was amazing.

    A little different mood of the Grand Canyon than Bryan's example. Better post-processing now as compared to when first shot.
