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.
Mosigkau palace was finished as a rococo mansion in 1757. The paelac and the garden which surrounds it are part of a union of eight manors and gardens along the river Elbe called the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz. As part of this union, it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage since the year 2000.
The Main Tower in Frankfurt am Main, Germany was opened in January 2000 and with a height of 200 meters, it is the fourth highest building in Germany. In the core of the impressive facade of glass you find the 26 fastest elevators in the country, which transport people and goods with a speed of 25.2 km/h.
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.
Nuremberg, the second largest city in Bavaria, is known as the cultural and economic capital in Franconia and one of the most important cities in all of Germany. Because of its picturesque Old City with a great number of historic buildings, Nuremberg is always worth a visit. The picture was taken at the bottom of the famous Nuremberg Castle – its hall is visible in the background.
The government quarter in Berlin is not only home to the most important institutions of Germany, like the Bundestag and the Federal Government, but also houses a number of different architectural masterpieces. Besides the Reichstag-building and the traditional Bellevue Palace you also find various futuristic buildings, which fit nicely into the cityscape.
The Old Town of the university town Bamberg is the largest preserved historical city centre in Germany and is source of many myths and legends. Beside the impressive Bamberg Cathedral, the very famous „little Venice“ and all the small and crooked alleys, one of my favourite buildings is the Old Town Hall. But it is not just an ordinary Town Hall, as you find it in any other city, Bamberg’s Old Town Hall was built in the middle of the river Regnitz.
