I find tilt-shift photography especially efficient on photo images as this one because it lets your eyes lay on the background, recognizing the City Hall, the Cathedral, the TV Tower in Berlin and also the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel on the right. In other words, it gives you the essence of the city, captured in one picture.

First, I photographed the background – I captured the sun just before it went down and at the same time when the clouds were amazingly illuminated from the below. Then, half an hour later, I photographed the foreground, by shooting 7 – 8 images. At the end I used the Time Blend effect to combine images of the Storkower Straße in Berlin, taken at a different time, into a single picture.
This picture is among the very few ones that really show unusual perspective on Berlin center. Actually, the trick I used for this image was to intentionally brake all the two-thirds or golden ratio rule of photography, and choose to put the TV Tower of Berlin right in the middle. I did that because I really liked the way it stands out of the entire composition.
With its 125 meters (410 feet) of height, this is, indisputably, the tallest building in the city. Park Inn by Radisson Berlin is also the tallest hotel in the country. Moreover it offers one of my favorite views existing in a city in Germany. The Hotel has 37 floors and it’s located in the northeastern part of Alexanderplatz, in the central Mitte district.
The Government District in Berlin, Germany on a rainy evening. I love the strict lines and the very modern and contemporary architectural style. The rain didn’t ruin the picture, instead it added depth to it.
