Camera: Canon EOS 500D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm @ 18mm
Exposures: 3 (-2, 0, +2)
Exposure time (middle): 2s
Tripod: Manfrotto 190CXPRO4
Size: 13.4 MPx
Date: Taken in November 2013
Location: Riverbank of the Vistula, south-west of the Wawel Castle
Software: Lightroom 5.2, Photoshop CS6, Photomatix Pro
Workflow: Sometimes you have to get dirty to get a good shot. For this one I had to go down as much as possible what meant for me: Get down there in the mud of the Vistula riverbank.
I opened the aperture as much as possible and put the ISO to 400 to have an as short as possible exposure time. Only that way I could capture the clouds the way I wanted. As the Vistula was incredible calm, it was no problem to get a perfect reflection even with the short exposure.
The Wawel is part of the UNESCO World Heritage
