Giuseppe Sapori - Defenceless

I was on the streets of Kalambaka when I saw this dark road leading for the Meteors. The road was very dark, only a few lights in the distance created a bit ‘of light pollution, my personal goal was to portray some few stars. I take for this picture 5 shots (without BKT), one of which is much higher intentionally to bring it back with the exposing to the right and pull out the stars. Suddently a car, probably a resident, has started to switch back and forth a few times. Now, in addition to the curious fact itself, I do not hide that for a moment I thought he was observing me, the fact is that he ruined some shots which I then had to repeat it before. However, the passage of the car allowed me to create an additional element to my photo,  by inserting it in one of my shots to create such an effect full of sky and foreground.

As I said, I made this picture by taking several pictures, I used three of them in Photoshop: 

-The first for the correct exposure of the lawn, road, meteors

-The second ETTR  for the sky, that I worked in Camera Raw to allow the stars of “exit “outside

-The last one with the passage of the car on the road.  I knew his movements 🙂
