Financial District in fog | Frankfurt, Germany 2015

The financial district of frankfurt am Main covered by fog. This photo was taken during my last photo-workshop about long exposures, architecture and urban landscapes in the german capital of skyscrapers and the financial system.
We started in a rainy morning but after a while the rain stopped and we just got a grey sky without any structures in the clouds.
When we arrived at the river Main the fog started floating deep above Frankfurt to cover the famous skyscrapes. A rare moment which we had to catch! During the next weeks I will show some results of the participants too.
I am happy to announce that the new dates for the next photo-workshops are almost planned. I will publish them on my website within the next week. Stay tuned.

Prague didn´t show it´s foggy site though it´s famous for many misty days. But it wasn´t a problem at all. Every morning I found a bit of mist above the city, in which Prague turned into a romantic, dreamy atmosphere.
I always saw this fisherman which was in time every morning to catch his meal for the day. This morning he decided to leave his favourite spot behind the Charles Bridge to start fishing a bit more in the north of Vlatva river. Good for me and the photo!

Obscure & Deep by DanielHerr

There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth. (Maya Angelou)

Ok what happens when you hike and hike and the weather is changing faster than the landscape around? You start to play with focal length and lenses. Finally you come home and you are truely disappointed because no picture has something promising. What to do. First, try to to change the colors – doesn`t work. So switch into monochrome art but it doesn`t work.

Than you try something different by blending two pictures. Go to Photoshop and play with luminance masks and increase contrasts, lights and shadows. Return to lightroom. Think about what`s missing. Add a film noire- filter. Be angry because of halos. Return to Photoshop. Remove the halos and think about the Gauschian Blur filter. It works. Return to Lightroom. Do somthing with the water, do something with the blackened areas. Bring some more depths into the clouds and finally save all the stuff.

The Old One by HatCatPhotography

This is a shot I have made few months ago in Heidelberg, Germany. It is the old bridge leading to the oldtown of Heidelberg.

I have revised the previous post and lowered saturations and sharpness a little bit. Also the luminance of the lights to try to get the attention on the bridge.

Thanks for all your interactions in advance. Feel free to ask questions, if you have any!
