Le bateau sur le lac Léman
Posted on 14 Nov 2013 ©2013 Debashis Paul Photography
This snap taken Geneva Night with Jet d'Eau at backdrop , Lake Geneva , Switzerland. As my base location was in Geneva for ~16 months I used to roam around every part of the city and typically across the Lake area so I am quite familiar of the city as a whole. I was craving for night photo shoot opportunity for long time after I bought my new Manfrotto tripod and cable release. This is weekdays shot at evening time of summer. Wrapped up early at my workplace to take that opportunity of photo shoot. Intention was sunset and it was little late. I took couple of sunset shot before I take this one ~10 O’clock at night. Some of those sunset shots you can also find in my other galleries. The Water Jet (Jet d'Eau in French) creates a nice effect in this picture though some of the lights in boat over-exposed due to my less photo knowledge that time but overall the colors and the dramatic Jet d’Eau long exposure effect came out pretty good. I hope it would have been more beautiful if I can capture the Geneva skyscrapers effect and reflection on the water in this same picture. But it is what it was !
