Photographer's Note

I shot this one on the same time and place of the nocturne panorama of Coimbra that I posted recently.

Like on the other one, I did several shots on the same exact position, so then I could merge them to increase the exposure keeping the noise down and also to increase resolution. I used a total of 3 shots. For the exposure enhancement I used only two, merged in 'addition' mode. I constructed a transparency mask on one of them, so I could adjust the exposure locally. Then I merged a third one in normal mode with 50% transparency to enhance the resolution.

The place is the front yard of a 17th century monastery that is located on a hill overlooking Coimbra and the Mondego river.

You can find some info on the city on another post of mine shot a month earlier on the same place.
