Quebec City, Terrasse Dufferin, Night

When we visited Quebec City last time it was pretty crowded. Tourists everywhere you went, crowded cafes and restaurants, booked-out hotels. During the day, Terrasse Dufferin was filled with people, so you had to somehow incorporate them into your pictures and be patient.

Nonetheless, we decided to do some night shooting fully expecting the same crowds and endless waiting times to take our long-exposure photos. Imagine our surprise when nobody was there. Everything was deserted, not a single soul out for a stroll. It ended up being one of our best night sessions ever. At the end, when we were leaving, another photographer showed up…perfect timing.

  1. Exceptional photograph, perfect exposure, vivid colors. Words hardly describe the shot. Quebec is very European looking. Sometimes it’s luck, but many people would already have snuggled up in their hotels, enjoyed a sip of wine or were sitting over a nice dinner, so I prefer to call it determination or perserverance.

  2. Very cool. Almost looks like an HDR image. Excellent work.

  3. Thank you both. Glad you liked it.
