Frankfurt Skyline

Newer Older

One of the best spots to photograph the skyline of Frankfurt. It's a much used railway bridge, which vibrates quite a bit when a train passes. So timing the beginning of a long exposure is crucial.

This is a DRI (Dynamic Range Increase) photo. I took 5 exposures, ranging from 1 second (ISO 100) to 30 Seconds (ISO 400) and blended them manually in Photoshop. One shot isn't enough to get details in both, highlights and shadows.

Shot with the 24-105 L at 75mm. I'm still stunned how much detail the 5d mkII captures, compared to the D700, when looking at the photo fully magnified.

    Peinlich - ganz nettes Foto aber was soll der Vergleich mit einer D700 ?
    Als Besitzer einer solchen Kamera kann ich behaupten, dass ich hier keine Detailfülle erkenne, die ich mit einer D700 nicht erreichen könnte; im Gegenteil. Ich finde das Foto ist sehr kontrastreich aber nicht besonders detailliert. Da hab ich schon Besseres gesehen (gerade auch von Nikon Kameras). Wer es natürlich an den Augen hat, dem gefallen übertriebene Farben und Kontraste natürlich. Ist wie mit alten Leuten - da muss auch mehr Salz in die Suppe.

    "This is a DRI (Dynamic Range Increase)"
    Do you mean HDR, or this is different in some ways ?
