This is a re-make of an old photo that I’ve posted before.
My response to:
Enjoy these night shots from the Açores. Some remakes, some new.

One night while I was exploring the streets of Horta, I came across this statue and took 3 bracketed shots with my Canon EOS600D (EF50mm f/1.8 II lens) at f/1.8, ISO 100. Now, three years later, I finally sat down and processed the images. It took me a while, but I like the results so it was worth the wait. I decided to make two versions, in the second one I added a small touch of blur and darkened a few parts. If you look at the walls, you can see how the forces of nature has been wearing and tearing on these buildings during the years. Here are both the photos in a gallery, which version do you prefer?
Would night photographing during the middle of the night, alone in an unknown city, get your adrenalin pumping? I can assure you that Horta was a quiet and safe place, but if you want to see adrenaline related shots you can always visit Paula’s challenge: https://bopaula.wordpress.com/2015/05/07/thursdays-special-adrenalin-response-to-guest-challenge
