A Basílica de Santa Maria na Praça do Mercado Principal, em Cracóvia, é um dos marcos mais famosos da cidade. Já vos mostrei o Altarpiece no interior da igreja, agora podem ver o exterior.
Extraordinárias são as duas torres desiguais, a mais alta tem 81m de altura, a outra é 12m mais pequena. Segundo uma lenda antiga, as torres foram construídas por dois irmãos – cada um trabalhava numa torre. Quando uma delas terminou a sua torre, ele estava preocupado que o seu irmão pudesse superar o seu trabalho e construir uma mais alta. Para evitar isso, ele esfaqueou-o até à morte e a torre da igreja ficou inacabada.
Camera: Canon EOS 500D

Exposures: 3 (-2, 0, +2)
Exposure time (middle): 1/30s
Tripod: Manfrotto 190CXPRO4
Size: 12.6 MPx
Date: Taken in November 2013
Location: From the Main Market Square (Rynek) in Kraków
Software: Lightroom 5.2, Photoshop CS6, Photomatix Pro
Workflow: The Main Market Square is overcrowded by tourist most of the time. As I was there very early in the morning, I found the square almost empty. It was even allowed for cars to go there to deliver goods to the market.
With such photos against the sun it is always difficult to get the colors right. Thanks to the new Magic Lantern Software on my cam, I would make more exposures next time to handle the dynamic even better.
