Sunlight fire reflection. St. Petersburg, Hermitage, Winter Canal / На берегах Флегетона, Санкт-Петербург, Зимняя канавка

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

*On the left, on the part of the Peter and Paul Fortress light of the low setting sun and glare on the water. So there was kind of a fiery river. Poor lighting, shutter speed 1/2 sec and a picture was taken from a distance. Therefore, the picture blurred strongly, but turned out very artistic effect :)

*Слева, со стороны Петропавловской Крепости светит низкое закатное солнце и бликует на поверхности воды. Поэтому возникло подобие огненной реки. Освещение слабое, снято с выдержкой в 0,5 сек с большого расстояния, с рук, поэтому фото прилично смазано, но получился весьма художественный эффект)

At first glance me totally missed blurred image. Also set are very unusual: f10 aperture and exposure of 0.6 seconds. However, the photo because of these circumstances; great emotive potential. Highlights the contrast between the cold foreground; and warm background. Blurry female figure gives me a touch of the passage, the final reputation; and deal with new unimaginable reality. It reminds me of my former close encounter with the Eternal Light. I walked from the cold incomprehensible life here; in a gentle embrace of Perfect Love. They were the most joyful moments of my existence! It is why I ranked this photo to my favorites. Dear Kostia, I sincerely wish you meaning to your life path! Emil.
