Frankfurt Skyline

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.
