I like to finish every wedding reception with a long exposure of the venue at night. Typically cloudy, sometimes raining, but occasionally a beautifully clear and crisp night, star

Next the tree. I began to prepare my camera to take a couple of shots. When I had finished putting the lens on, I looked up at the couple and they were rehearsing their wedding dance, the waltz. I wasted no time to capture this moment that began to unfold before me and when they finished the dance, this was the image that was captured.
My biggest difficulty was not in the picture itself but entering private property without knowing who owned it or having permission.
It all happened very fast. The composition in my mind suited the silhouette the best, so I went with that.
5D mark III, f / 8, 1/200 s, ISO 100, the lens used for this photo was 24-105 mm, I tried to shoot upwards, trying to leave a very broad vision, and with a smaller aperture.
The post production was all done in Lightroom, I used some contrast, pulling over the blue color on top and a warm color to the bottom of the photograph.
I felt very happy with the result, as something quite natural and spontaneous, with beautiful colors, the couple fell in love with the picture. The result was fantastic.
