Brandenburg Gate – West | Berlin, Germany

    Newer Older

    Most photos that you’ll see from the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin are taken from its eastern side. There are simple reasons for that: First, the Pariser Platz on the eastern side is not accessible for cars, so the tourists gather there. Second, Victoria on the Quadriga is looking towards East and therefore it seems to be the front of the gate.

    However, the western side has two other advantages for photographers. For one thing you can capture the colors of the rising sun (it’s no fun to shoot a sunset at Brandenburg Gate, too many tourists) and for another thing you can catch some light trails of the passing cars.

      Beautiful exposure and HDR (?) technique. Very thoughtfully planned which has rewarded you with a stunning image, quite apart from others I've seen of the Brandenburg Gate.

      Von der anderen Seite. Gelungen. Sieht im Sonnenaufgang richtig goldig aus!
