The German Bundesrat or Federal Council was one of the buildings I’ve been sold on in this year’s Festival of Lights in Berlin. This photo also was taken a day before the Festival was supposed to start. I wandered around between the Gendarmenmarkt and Potsdamer Platz until I came across the enlightened Bundesrat.
The colors changed rather quickly but nevertheless it was possible to shot a few multiple brackets. I think I have around ten more color combinations on my hard drive but this one I like the most as it illuminates every part of the Bundesrat and offers in the same time a wide range of colors.
