Lucerne Skyline

Lucerne, Switzerland skyline

1/400s . f/10.0 . ISO 200 . 79 mm

Here is a skyline of Lucerne, Switzerland.  What I like most about this shot is the many layers all smashed together in by my telephoto lens.

It’s important to close-down the aperture for such a shot in order to maintain sharpness throughout the whole image.  As you can probably tell, in order to get the shading exactly right, this shot had to be highly post-processed.  The nice thing is that I was able to do the entire thing within Lightroom using the adjustment brush functionality along with the gradient filter effects.

I highly recommend taking the sunset harbor cruise by Circle Line.  You can get some beautiful shots like this one.  I spent a good amount of time in Lightroom recovering some of the lost detail in the original image.  With a jpeg file this would have been image would be a no-go, but the raw file saved the day.  This is where having an advanced camera will truly come in handy.

Photographing the Brooklyn Bridge

One of my favorite shots, taken on a Circle Line Sunset Harbor Cruise.  I like the way it isn’t just a bridge, but also has the tourists in the foreground.  The guy in the hood has a better camera than I but oh well.
