There are exactly 165 canals, so the decision as to which one to capture was not so easy. The composition though was always accomplished by the presence of several boats. The boats pictured above were rather small, in comparison to the 2,500 other house boats which were all around Amsterdam.
It is not surprising that Vienna is best known for its Opera. The neoclassicist blast from the ensemble, with all the aura of history and prosperity, give this Hall a unique character. The Vienna State Opera in our present day not only displays performances of opera pieces but also ballet spectacles. Once a year, the Opera is transformed into a ballroom on the last Thursday of Fasching.
This shot comes from the stunning Menorca – one of the Balearic Islands. The interesting thing is that I’ve never tried shooting star trails before! I saw this kind of photography before, but somehow in Berlin and in cities where I have traveled as such shots like these just didn’t work for me and for one simple reason – the skyline over these cities is “polluted” by artificial light. Therefore, if you want top results when photo taking, it is best to do so mainly in remote areas.
While in this spot during the day, we discovered that you can capture Puerta de Alcalá in more detail from the small island in-between a pedestrian crossing. In the evening of that same day, I assembled my tripod in the best position, attempting to capture Madrid’s night life during the busy atmosphere. This definitive photograph took almost a half hour to capture.
