NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix
I just recently visited Copenhagen, Denmark for the first time. I only had a few hours to walk around on a Sunday afternoon and take a few shots. My target was the Nyhavn. Probably the most famous spot in Denmark. I arrived via taxi about an hour before sunset and the views were wonderful! I am not sure you can take a bad photo here.. They had just decorated it for the holidays and some lights were up and it gave the location a nice warm feel! I walked down one side of the canal and took lots of photos (HDR, standard and IR). I might have spent 1 hour walking only 300 yards. The colorful buildings, docked boats and reflective water were perfect subjects!
This shot was taken with my usual 5 exposures, cable release and tripod….post processed in Photomatix. This became an instant favorite of mine. I think I will use it for the cover to my Places 2 Explore Volume 2 Photo Book (Vol 1 info is noted above)..due out in 2010. I will post a few more shots from here soon…more of the Nyhavn with details on Copenhagen!
