A Little Place I found on the way to dinner in Germany

    Newer Older

    I wish I could walk to dinner every night and find little places like this along the way. Since I carry my tripod and camera just about everywhere, I'd always be ready in case something like this pops up!

    This was shot in Halle, Germany, just a short train ride from Leipzig. I love how these old churches are often lit with orange lights... I think it always makes them look nice against the blue dusky skies.

    Setting up the tripod for these evening HDRs always allows you to set the ISO as low as possible, and in aperture priority mode, the shutter will stay open for a long time, letting those clouds drift by and drag light across the lens. It gives a nice feel to the shot and makes the church look even more timeless and solid.

      Hello there...... phantastic shot of my favorite church in my home town.

      Sorry I have to say its not located in Halle but def. in Leipzig. It is the St. Thomas Church where J.S. Bach was working from 1723-1750.
