Heidelberg, Germany (Infrared)

Here is one more shot from the beautiful Heidelberg, Germany!  I only took a handful of IR shots  this day, but this one I liked alot!  A nice different view of the old bridge/city.  You can see the castle up on the left.  This was taken at dusk….around 9:45 PM.  So if you are thinking of trying Infrared…you can take shots anytime of the day!!

I noted on my Facebook page yesterday, I roughly plan to give my first speech/presentation/tutorial on Infrared Photography for the Austin SMUG Group on October 20th.  If you are in Austin this day hope you can join us!  I’ll post firm details as it gets closer!

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!
