Mannheim TV Tower by HatCatPhotography

Today I was out with the family for a walk in a local park in Mannheim, Germany with my Fuji X100T. My intention was to frame the TV tower there and do some additional coloring. I like the result!

Wish you a all a happy new year and health and joy for the upcoming year!!

Four Castles by Armin_Barth

So this is the shot from this morning. I waited for this conditions for a few weeks. Clear sky to get the sunrise and cold wet air to get some fog on the ground but not higher. I was absolutely lucky, the fog was laying just on the river and from the castle “Hinterburg” I had a great view on the scenery.

The Murder in Mannheim by HatCatPhotography

Dear all,

I hope I am not offending any viewer. I have published this photo few months ago. Let me give you a little bit of background story:

What you see her is essentially a bridge in Mannheim (Theodor-Heuss-Bridge). In 1981 at this location there happened a murder in which two people were stabbed to death.
I wanted to recap this with some little bit of photoshop. It is a composite. The legs you see have been cut from a photo that shows a woman doing yoga. Again: What you see here is just an experiment how the murder could have happened at that time.

If you are interested you can read a little bit of background here:

Hope you like this creepy atmosphere!!

Like two small houses by HatCatPhotography

This is the first time in my photographers life to capture some mushrooms. I did not have the years before a macro lens and so a friend and I decided today to get out and try to find some nice looking mushrooms to ban on sensor 🙂

I had my LED light with me so I underexposed the whole frame with -3V and just lightened the mushrooms!

In post processing I added some warm tone to it and darkened everything around even more.

Hope you like the result!

Wish you all an upcoming nice Sunday!

Deep down it awaits by HatCatPhotography

Please look at it with black background: Press H and then M!

This is another shot from Mannheim, Germany at the Theodor-Heuss-Bridge (one of the largest in this region). The stairs are leading just in a small hall where you can leave the bridge. At this time only a friend and I were present there. It was so atmospheric that we even got jump scared by a cycler ringing at us so he can pass. 🙂

I boosted the contrasts and selectively used the pencil to brighten lamps and darken shadows where I thought it would be better. I like the result. Hope, you too. 🙂

Wish you all a nice Sunday and good start in the new week!
