Pic(k) of the week 2: ZURICH during the blue hour

Earlier this week I reviewed the brand-new 16-55 2.8 Fujinon lens. While I shared some images in the review post, I have a few 5 star images, that haven’t been shared yet, mostly because they consist of more complex multi-exposures image editing technique.

One of these images is one from a Christmas Eve shoot in Zurich (Switzerland) during the blue hour; about 15'-30' after sunset and my favourite time to shoot cityscapes. I particularly like how the Swiss Alpes are still visible at the distant horizon, bathing in a beautiful post-sunset light.
