Munich - Rathaus HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix

The Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) is located at Marienplatz in Munich, Germany.  It hosts the city government including the city council, offices of the mayors and part of the administration.  It was built bewtween 1868 and 1907.  1874 was the last usage for the old town hall.  The basement of the New Town Hall belongs to a restuarant called the Ratskeller. 

Munich is one of my favorite cities in Germany.  The people, acrhitecture and the train systems to get around locally are wonderful!   I have spent many an evening in front of this New Town Hall eating at the outdoor restaurant seating overlooking this beauiful building….and of course having a nice cold German beer! 

I took this shot at a great time for HDR….the blue hour!   When the builings are lit up at nite, the sun goes down and the sky is a nice royal blue.  A nice contrast for any photo…especially HDR’s!!   I took this with my usual 5 exposures, tripod, cable release….processed in Photomatix.  Auf Wiedersehen!!
