Première lumière sur la place principale de Cracovie | Pologne

Kraków Main Square (Rynek Główny). HDR Photo of Sukiennice and the Adam Mickiewicz Monument

La place principale de Cracovie (Rynek Główny) est l’élément central de la ville et aucun touriste ne visitera jamais Cracovie sans marcher sur cette place. Évidemment, cela entraîne un sentiment de surpopulation tout au long de la journée et vous pouvez souvent entendre les habitants de Cracovie se plaindre des masses de touristes.

Que pouvez-vous faire ? La solution comme souvent : Se lever tôt. Le matin, les voitures sont autorisées sur la Grand-Place, mais il y a beaucoup moins de monde. Définitivement, c’est beaucoup plus calme que pendant la journée ou la soirée. Quoi qu’il en soit, j’ai été surpris par le nombre de personnes qui étaient déjà debout à une heure aussi matinale. Heureusement, il a été possible de prendre quelques photos sans qu’il y ait beaucoup de monde.

Sur cette photo, vous pouvez voir la Halle aux draps de Cracovie (Sukiennice) avec le monument Adam Mickiewicz au premier plan. Le soleil vient de se frayer un chemin par-dessus les toits et projette la silhouette de la ville sur les murs de la Halle aux draps.

Location: On the main square in Kraków, in front of the Adam Mieckiewicz Monument

Workflow: In the way of how to take the photo there was not too many issues to take care of. I tried to capture everything through multiple exposures but unfortunately, a few people didn’t want to move.

Tough luck! Well, then I have to do it in the post-processing. First I got rid of some artifacts in the sky and then I took out the few remaining persons. After that I brought more structure to the image and adjusted the colors (the golden light seemed way to artificial fresh out of Photomatix).

Main Square of Kraków is part of the UNESCO World Heritage
