A maioria das fotos que verá da Porta de Brandenburgo em Berlim são tiradas do seu lado oriental. Há razões simples para isso: Primeiro, o Pariser Platz do lado oriental não é acessível aos carros, por isso os turistas reúnem-se lá. Em segundo lugar, Victoria na Quadriga está a olhar para Leste e por isso parece ser a frente do portão.
No entanto, o lado ocidental tem duas outras vantagens para os fotógrafos. Por um lado, é possível capturar as cores do sol nascente (não é divertido fotografar um pôr-do-sol no Portão de Brandenburgo, demasiados turistas) e por outro, é possível apanhar alguns rastros leves dos carros que passam.
Camera: Canon EOS 500D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm @ 22mm
Exposures: 3 (-2, 0, +2)
Exposure time (middle): 3s
Tripod: Manfrotto 190CXPRO4

Date: Taken in November 2013
Software: Lightroom 5.2, Photoshop CS6, Photomatix Pro
Workflow: Small aperture is the key. At first I thought it’s already too bright for light trails but it was just dark enough. Aperture set on 22 and exposure time on just 3 seconds. That had the nice effect that you don’t only see the cars backlights but also the blinking indicator.
With those settings I stood there for a few minutes until I had some shots to go with. In Photomatix I first merged 3 different exposures and then I blended the original photo with the light trails back in.
