Nurnberg, Germany – St. Lorenz Cathedral (HDR)

Here is another photo from the beautiful St. Lorenz Cathedral in Nurnberg, Germany!   I  truly enjoy shooting any churches and/or cathedrals in HDR.  I’d say as long as the composition is solid, the photo will be wonderful!!! For this shot I added the fisheye lens to broaden the view.  The candle they put in the middle of the floor is sweet for photos!    Add a little longer exposure and you get the light flare!  This view is of the backside of the Cathedral – where the entrance is located.   Amazing!!!    I could have shot here all day, but the doors closed at 6 PM and I rushed to get lot of shots.   I left soon after and walked into a snowstorm while meandering down the streets. Nurnberg is one of my favorite cities in Germany to visit.  My top list would be:  Munich, Berlin, Koln, Nurnberg and Frankfurt.   I am sure there a a bunch of great little towns.  If you know any…post em here!  I am always looking for another place 2 explore!
