Late night moon at lake Bled

I wonder what they use to light up the castle at the lake Bled. The light is just so crazy bright. I was at least 7 exposures underexposed and still, they were just white in my photo. Even in the finished one I was not able to blend them exactly how I wanted. Must be some crazy strong lights.

I was not sure if I will even edit this photos. It was just too dark with the bright lights and bright mooon. And I did not take a brighter exposure. Better said, I did, but with a bit differnt composition and a bit out of focus. So this one had to work out until I go back to Bled one day.

This is a blend of three exposures, but mostly for the lights on the castle and the church. I also had to clean up some lens flares created by the moonlight. Edited and blended in Photoshop.

And here is also a comparison to the original RAW file. As you can see, it was really dark. And this was the brightest exposure I had.
