Munich, Germany – Rathaus (HDR)

Munich Rathuas HDR 06SW
This is from one early AM in Munich. I woke up at 4 AM this day to get the cool railway tunnels down below the Rathaus and as I was walking back to the hotel, I grabbed this shot. Nice long exposure creates wonderful cloud movement!

Frankfurt, Germany – Skyline (HDR)

Frankfurt Skyline_Talke
I was in Frankfurt last week stopping over for the nite on my way home. My hotel was a few blocks from the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) and 3 blocks from the bridge in the skyline shot. At this time of year…sunset is around 9:15 PM…I had to get up early in the AM…so I anxiously awaited blue hour to arrive. Finally finished at 10 PM. Always nice visiting Germany. The beer is the best!!

Munich, Germany – Theatine Church (HDR)

Munich Church_talke
From the lovely city of Munich, Germany…if you walk around Marienplatz you can find some great architecture. A few churches, shopping, the Rathaus and much more! Hop off the U-Bahn and walk about 1/4 mile and you come across Theatine Church. Hard not to find it due to its yellowish exterior color. The outside is tough to photograph…tight quarters. Inside is the best option! Not many church interiors look bad in HDR. Enjoy your Thursday!

Cologne, Germany – Cologne Cathedral (HDR)


From Cologne…in my opinion, one of the best cities in Germany, this is the amazing Cologne Cathedral. Hard not to miss it when arriving into city…especially via the train. It is probably the most photographed church in all of Germany! Just be quick with your tripod! I snapped off 5 brackets and was told to take it down as I did not have proper approval. Knowing this was a possible outcome…I packed my gorillapod and attached it to the back of the pews and took this HDR. Gave it the grunge look thanks to onOne Software Photo Tools…one of my favorite filter’s “Brian’s TKO”. Thanks to Brian Matiash at onOne!

Don’t forget Perfect Photo Suite 7 is due out soon! I am testing the beta right now!
