Writing with Light

Old Jaffa Arches

Old Jaffa is a labyrinth of cobblestoned streets and alleyways with stone archways that lead the visitor to beautiful galleries and delightful middle eastern eateries.

I was actually looking for a gallery I had heard about and made a wrong turn and came upon this green lit scene.  I shot 3 brackets at +2, 0, -2 and processed the brackets in Photomatix. I then brought it back into lightroom and did minor adjustments to shadows & highlights.

  10. A happy accident taking the wrong turn, the seemingly unending arches with the green lighting in the middle is so tranquil. Your use of hdr is inspirational.

  14. That is intriguing – not quite sure if that is a sculpture at that far end of this passage. There is interest at all points as I look into this image. Very well processed too, Edith.

    • Thank you so much Andy, there is quite a bit to take in. It was a sculpture/relief (if I can call it that) on top of the archway.
